    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

    May 29, 2019 - Ruby, not much development. Game, black cherry, and pine. Bigger than the prototypical Volnay with resiny, slightly astringent wood tannins, but there are tremendous depth and freshness of the red fruit supplemented by a boatload of crushed spices as well. Certainly an excellent mouthful, relatively open compared to many 2005's, and very enjoyable now, but my hope would be that in another 10 years, it will have shed some of its oak to gain elegance and capture more of its inner Volnay. I have no regrets about trying one at this point but would advise patience unless you are looking for a more exuberant Pinot experience. There is little minerality now, and you won't mistake this for Angerville or Lafarge.

    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.

    (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.
