    January 2, 2020 - {Bought on release, prof storage, 1st bottle of 12, perfect fill; opened 1.1.2020} Pretty but reticent nose, very full 'pinote' flavor set with incredible complexity... yet an almost austere, reserved, yet refined, minerally, and rewarding finish. Fore-palate had a mix of lacy, lighter notes as well as authoritative sweet depth. Bloomed over the evening. Glass reserved for the next day (today) and very similar nose and palate profile. Nose was pretty, but subdued compared to the palate, which I find promising. This is a superb, superb wine, just at beginning of drinking window with lots of complexity at 14+ years of age. No protruding edges or aspects, a spherical and complete wine. Classic high-end Volnay. Wow. In 10 years will be a more open, fragrant giving wine and likely 94-95 points.

    December 24, 2019 - Another Christmas Eve wine. Very good, but not identifiable as Volnay. In fact, if you asked me blind, I would have pegged the 2005 Arlot Suchots I recently had as more likely to be Volnay and this Bouchard more likely to be a Vosne. Early in its window. I bet you it takes 10 years for the terroir to come through.

    June 20, 2019 - Part of 2005 Burgundy tasting. Second in the lineup. I agree with Beachbum’s rating. Red fruit and earthy and mineral notes; all very subdued but definitely there. Delivers big flavour on the palate, all subtle but long, balanced and persistent. Just kept opening up as the evening went on.

    June 20, 2019 - this is big dark and awesome!!!! really big. It took a bit to come out and I agree that the oak sticks out a bit much for me right now, but this is a really nicely balanced drink that showed good complexity.... I might wait another 5-8 years. Yum

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot) Again with 4 hectares of vines, Bouchard P&F own close to one third of Caillerets. The nose starts in a very understated way; floral, but needs quite some coaxing to show a little more depth and again faint barrel notes. A silky texture covers fruit of understated power - aided by fine acidity the complex flavours just roll over and over your tongue. This is really lovely.
