92 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets Ancienne CuvÃ©e Carnot is already extremely charming, bursting from the glass with a lavish bouquet of cassis, dried rose petals, coniferous forest floor and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and satiny, with an elegantly textural attack, a nicely concentrated core of fruit and lively acids, concluding with a precise, vibrant finish." 4/19
90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne CuvÃ©e Carnot 1er Cru (the first parcel purchased by the Bouchard family in 1775) has a well-defined, intense bouquet of black cherries, bilberry and light violet aromas. The medium-bodied palate is finely proportioned, offering crisp tannin, layers of pure blackberry, raspberry and brown spice, and a touch of truffle right on the finish. Excellent." 1/19
91-92 Points, James Suckling: "From the heart of the appellation, this has a lot of violet-fruit aromas with a poached-cherry and red-plum core and deep-set spice notes, as well as chalky elements. The theme continues to a chalky texture from the limestone bedrock with fine, compressed tannins and bright red cherries. Drink across the first decade." 2/19
95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Fine purity, silkiness and harmony set the stage for aromas and flavors of flowers, cherry, toasty oak and spice. Features a minerally undercurrent, while the finish goes on for close to a minute. Best from 2022 through 2038. From France."
