    March 12, 2019 - Bouchard Père et Fils Tasting with Frédéric Weber (Knightsbridge - Northbrook IL): Ripe black cherry Nd berry aromas with rich spice notes and floral hints. Flavors are still ripe, but incredibly complex and layered. Still slightly backward and tannic, but there is no question this is heading in an exciting direction. I think it is best to hold this until 2025 or later.

    January 18, 2019 - while this wine has shed it baby fat; it was still pretty monolithic. deep dark berry fruits, great length. tannins are very fine and the wine had a beautiful mouth feel. really enjoyable, but still years away from prime drinking window.

    November 20, 2018 - Dinner at Imperial Treasure with Asparagus gang. Drank from bottle over 2 hours.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose medium+ intensity, with aromas of red florals, sweet spices, earth, red cherries, mint, hints of feral animal. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, juicy high acidity, medium+ alcohol (13.5%), silky supple medium+ tannins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of sweet ripe dark red cherries, black cherries, earth, sweet spices, licorice, slight meaty animal and dark leather. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Lovely old vine depth. Generous on the palate.
    Just entering into drinking window. Still long life ahead for more development.

Burgundy-Report

    (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.
