2018 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Volnay 1er Cru "Les Caillerets - Ancienne Cuvée Carnot"

SKU #1495778 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blueberry, plum and flower aromas with some new leather. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and density. Flavorful and stylish at the finish. A little tight now. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot is showing beautifully from bottle, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, black plums, sweet soil tones and subtle spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's one of the more tightly wound wines in the range, with powdery structuring tannins, lively acids and a long, penetrating finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is compositionally similar to the Taillepieds but even riper and with just a bit more spice elements. There is good intensity and minerality on the delicious middle weight flavors that also coat the palate on the youthfully austere and slightly warm finish that delivers fine length. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2020)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Volnay Les Caillerets "Ancienne Cuvée Carnot" 1er Cru comes from Bouchard’s 3.7-hectare monopole. It expresses more delineation and detail than the Taillepieds, presenting a rather intoxicating mélange of red and black fruit laced with violet. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good body and density and a firm backbone. It clams up a little toward the finish, and it will demand three or four years in bottle before it becomes approachable. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

88-92 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "3 plots in the upper part, very little topsoil, straight on the rock. Ripens very quickly, picked early, but even so a slightly pruny note to the nose. There is a very significant concentration of fruit here, but it is slightly dry at the finish. Perhaps deep plums in the end. This will merit more if the over-ripe aspects prove to be an issue of sample freshness. Tasted: November 2019."
