Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot Bouchard 2016 (1.5L)
93 Points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne CuvÃ©e Carnot is lovely, wafting from the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of wild berries, forest floor, potpourri and a subtle framing of cedar new wood. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and satiny, with beautifully powdery tannins cloaked in cool, succulent fruit, concluding with a long finish. Right now, this Caillerets is quite reserved, but its structural finesse and harmony are already impressive." 1/19
92-94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: " Good dark red. Alluring, mellow aromas and flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, spices and minerals, plus a suggestion of toffee. Round, silky and plush, offering mouthfilling voluptuousness without losing its shape. The compellingly round, sweet finish shows a fine dusting of tannins and superb length. Absolutely no sign of vine stress here!" 1/18
92-94 Points, Burghound: "More discreet wood more easily allows the overtly spicy aromas of poached plum, lavender and tea, The round yet reasonably well-detailed flavors possess a sophisticated mouth feel as well as fine mid-palate density, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, mineral-driven and very firm finish. Unlike the GrÃ¨ves however, this excellent effort should be reasonably approachable after 5 to 7 years." 4/18
