    ($100) Bright, saturated dark red. Rather low-toned aromas of dark raspberry, plum, chocolate, earth, leather, cinnamon and nutty oak, with a hint of minerality. Dense, smoky and deep, with a slightly high-toned character and considerable ripeness to the reticent but rich fruit and earth flavors. This rather full Volnay is very ripe and stuffed with material but a bit mute today, its broad, chewy tannins calling for patience. In an awkward stage today: a year ago my sample showed much more nerve.

    A 2005 Volnay Caillerets Ancien Cuvee Carnot - representing a Bouchard monopole and the historical origins of their domaine, and taking up nearly 30% of the Caillerets appellation - offers lovely aromas and flavors of strawberry and cherry with floral, spice and chalky mineral nuances that point to the site, although its more typical carnal or fungal manifestations are absent, at least for now. Refreshingly bright and clear in fruit, it finishes with invigorating persistence.

    Both sweet fruit and oak highlight this concentrated, firmly structured red. The oak dominates now, especially on the finish, but this has sweet fruit and intensity, along with elegance. The potential shows on the finish.

    Cask sampleDeep garnet with broad pale rim. Complex blend of meatiness and cedar freshness on the nose with toasty edge. Sweet fruit in the middle and long perfumed finish. Subtle, dry length. (JH)

    Bright, saturated dark red. Rather low-toned aromas of dark raspberry, plum, chocolate, earth, leather, cinnamon and nutty oak, with a hint of minerality. Dense, smoky and deep, with a slightly high-toned character and considerable ripeness to the reticent but rich fruit and earth flavors. This rather full Volnay is very ripe and stuffed with material but a bit mute today, its broad, chewy tannins calling for patience. In an awkward stage today: a year ago my sample showed much more nerve. Bright med. dark ruby red color; lovely nose of predominantly black fruit, leather, spice, chocolate, and hint of oak; similar flavors; rich, intense, complex, and long; lovely balance with good but not excessive acidity and soft integrated tannins. Delicious now but will drink well and possible improve further in bottle for several more years.

    Oak has integrated over the last year. Great fruit/mineral interplay. Almost too good.

Eighty-six hectares of grand and premier cru vineyards. One hundred thirty total hectares in the Cote d'Or. Eighty crus produced each vintage. Two hundred seventy-five years of history. Bouchard Père et Fils is truly an institution in Beaune. The Maison was founded by father and son Michel and Joseph Bouchard in 1731, and the family wine merchant business has grown steadily ever since, taking any opportunity to add to its vineyard holdings along the way. Not to be completely overshadowed by its wines, Bouchard conducts business in the very center of Beaune in the old Chateau de Beaune, whose storied past rivals that of the Maison. In 1995, the Champagne family of Joseph Henriot took control of Bouchard, resulting in improvements in quality, not to mention the addition of more top-level vineyard sites. Reds of particular interest include the flagship Beaune Grèves Vigne de l'Enfant Jésus and the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As for whites, the Meursault Genevrières, Meursault Perrières, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet are all great interpreters of their particular sites, exhibiting the many nuances of grand and premier cru Chardonnay.
