($85) Medium red. Pure, vibrant aromas of red cherry and flowers. Juicy, silky and suave, with very good lift to the red berry and floral flavors. At once sweet and delicate, in a distinctly elegant style. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent, with a lovely light touch. I found this a bit light a year ago from barrel, but today its class comes through.

The 2006 Volnay Caillerets Ancien Cuvee Carnot ' from a parcel whose 1775 acquisition marked the inauguration of Bouchard ' was also the picking that kicked off this vintage. It boasts the sweetest expression of ripe black fruits in any of the year's Cote de Beaune collection at this address, with scents of blackberry and violet segueing into a polished palate with refined tannins, sappy, sweet fruit intensity, and underlying chalkiness to live up to its site's name. A fine sense of animated interchange of fruit, mineral, and inner-mouth floral elements leads to a finish of lift and impressive length.
