Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France

Volnay Les Caillerets 2017

April 2019

90-93 Points

Burghound.com

A ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up aromas of violet, red currant and earth, all of which is trimmed in whiffs of abundant spice as well as enough oak to point out. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is more elegant than the Grèves while delivering very good if not truly exceptional depth and persistence on the bitter cherry-inflected finish.

Volnay Les Caillerets 2017

February 2019

91-92 Points

James Suckling

From the heart of the appellation, this has a lot of violet-fruit aromas with a poached-cherry and red-plum core and deep-set spice notes, as well as chalky elements. The theme continues to a chalky texture from the limestone bedrock with fine, compressed tannins and bright red cherries.

Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2017

January 2019

90-92 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 1er Cru (the first parcel purchased by the Bouchard family in 1775) has a well-defined, intense bouquet of black cherries, bilberry and light violet aromas. The medium-bodied palate is finely proportioned, offering crisp tannin, layers of pure blackberry, raspberry and brown spice, and a touch of truffle right on the finish. –NM

The nose has attractive rose and spicy red-cherry aromas, leading to a smoothly succulent palate that carries plenty of fruit flesh and depth. Great wine for early drinking.

Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 2018 2017

January 2019

89-90 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has quite an elegant bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit combining with finely integrated new oak (25%). The palate is smooth on the entry and quite plush in style, with good depth, though it is missing some terroir expression on the finish. –NM
