Bouchard Pere & Fils Volnay 'Les Caillerets' Premier Cru 2020

Only 3 units available online.
Product description

Founded in 1731, Bouchard Pere & Fils is one of Burgundy’s oldest wine merchants and one of the largest landowners in the Cote d’Or. Over the centuries, the House has been devoted to attaining highly renowned parcels to produce exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With uncompromising quality standards, long term grower partnerships and ageing in a state-of-the-art winery results in wines of outstanding consistency and the truest and finest expression of each terroir.

Exquisite fruit and spice aromas on the nose. On the palate, perfect harmony between structure and elegance: rich, complex, and voluptuous.

Pairs well with lamb, duck and light game.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

Ripe and open-knit, exuding juicy black cherry, plum and spice flavors. Feels soft, yet this has dense, refined tannins that gird the finish. Elegant, with a stony undercurrent.

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Unfurling in the glass with aromas of dark berries, rose petals, plums, raw cocoa and orange rind, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, fragrant finish.

91 Points - James Suckling

Upfront floral and licorice aromas, but it needs some aeration for the red berries to emerge. A rich and fleshy wine for this appellation that’s associated with silky elegance. Crisp tannins and lively acidity keep this bright.
