Volnay Caillerets 1er Cru Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 2015, Bouchard Père & Fils

France / Burgundy

Andy's Tasting Notes

Ooh this is lovely!  That perfect combination of exquisite fruit, wonderful perfumed aromatics, just the right amount of mushroom earthiness and a seductive velvety texture with super smooth tannins.

Gorgeous to drink now, but good to keep till 2027/2028. (Just give it 30 minutes in a Burgundy glass before enjoying).

Producer Info

Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Père & Fils is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy and one of the largest vineyard owners in the Cote D’or. The first vineyards were purchased in Volnay “Les Caillerets” in 1775, and so began a long history of gathering fine ‘terroirs’. Firstly in the Côte de Beaune, which is still home to the majority of Bouchard Père & Fils holdings, and then in the Côte de Nuits.

Bouchard Père & Fils is an example of unique Burgundy heritage, offering great diversity and a raft of prestigious appellations: Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Beaune Grèves Vignes de l’Enfant Jésus, Bonnes-Mares and Meursault Perrière – names that resonate with history, inspiring respect and encouraging the pursuit of excellence, with 4 monopolies and exclusivities among them. These remarkable parcels are meticulously tended by the teams who are responsible for the maintenance of the estate’s vines.

Today, Bouchard is one of the largest landowners in the Côte d’Or, with a comprehensive mosaic of vineyards in a wide variety of prestigious appellations. The domain runs to 130 hectares; 12 of which are classified Grand cru and 74 Premier cru. Bouchard Père & Fils maintain exacting standards in their vineyards all year round and the vigneron teams carefully manage the domain. Each parcel is supervised by a vineyard manager, and precise records are kept. Grapes are handpicked and collected in small 12kg crates to avoid crushing the berries. They are then taken to the Cuverie Saint Vincent where a final sorting is carried out. It is then the job of the winemaking team, headed by Frédéric Weber, to continue the process with the same dedication that has been used throughout the year.
