2019 Domaine Bouchard Père & Fils Volnay 1er Cru "Ancienne Cuvée Carnot - Les Caillerets" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1543062 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This a firm and pretty red with a solid tannin backbone to the medium body. Ripe fruit with some walnut, tobacco, and floral undertones. It’s long and flavorful. Balanced and firm. Classic style. Drink in 2025. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There is a suggestion of herbal tea on the exuberantly spicy aromas of red and dark raspberry along with a hint of violet. There is a wonderful texture to the classy and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract before culminating in a compact, serious and built-to-age finish. This too could use better depth but the underlying material, and this wine's consistently outstanding track record, bodes well for the future. One to strongly consider. *Don't Miss, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2021)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From a large parcel of 3.76ha in this leading Volnay Premier Cru, the fruit is slowly fermented in wooden vats and aged just over a year in cask, one-third new. The result is classic Volnay, with an expressive aroma of ripe red cherry fruit, along with notes of fresh violets and spice. The texture on the palate is silky and subtle, but not lacking in substance. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with a deep-pitched bouquet of wild berries and plums mingled with raw cocoa, peonies and subtle hints of spice. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, it's seamless and complete, with a deep core of fruit and velvety structuring tannins. (WK) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is complex and aromatic, featuring cherry, plum, sandalwood, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. The supple texture is punctuated by vibrant acidity and refined tannins, showing fine balance and length. Drink now through 2030. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Volnay Les Caillerets 'Ancienne Cuvée Carnot' 1er Cru is a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, quite floral in style, well defined and showing more joie-de-vivre than the Chevrets. The medium-bodied palate is silky-smooth with supple tannins and flecks of dark chocolate toward the finish. Moderate depth and persistence. This Les Caillerets needs time in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

90-93 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Rich deep purple, slightly richer plum nose, sweet dark fruit, very powerful, almost too much. Dark black cherry with lush raspberry alongside. This is something of a fruit bomb at the moment, but will merit a higher rating if it refines and gains gravitas during the rest of the elevage." (10/2020)
