Bouchard Pere & Fils

flagBurgundy / France

The 2006 Volnay Caillerets Ancien Cuvee Carnot – from a parcel whose 1775 acquisition marked the inauguration of Bouchard – was also the picking that kicked off this vintage. It boasts the sweetest expression of ripe black fruits in any of the year's Cote de Beaune collection at this address, with scents of blackberry and violet segueing into a polished palate with refined tannins, sappy, sweet fruit intensity, and underlying chalkiness to live up to its site's name. A fine sense of animated interchange of fruit, mineral, and inner-mouth floral elements leads to a finish of lift and impressive length. Dec 2009, www.robertparker.com
