    February 26, 2022 - Aging well. Notes of mushroom, cigar box and sous-bois. Red fruit still alive on the palate. Medium plus acidity. Medium grip and long finish.
    Very good bottle.

    January 13, 2022 - Cherry, raspberry, decayed roses; firm, substantial, developed, aged; some fruit remaining but sous bois and notes of chocolate more dominant on the long gradual graceful finish; excellent; very enjoyable

    April 25, 2020 - This is very good, and hard as it is for me to believe that a Volnay would need more than 14 years to develop, this one does. I think it has an upside to 93 or 94 in 5+ years. It's pretty, but still remarkably primary at this stage, without much complexity. It has a little stuffing though, and I think it will stretch out and add charm in the next few years.

    March 17, 2020 - Pure fruit, and feels like a winner with a bit more age, but right now a bit austere and not as giving even with a fair amount of air. My last note caught this in a better place, but I still like this wine and feel like it has a solid future ahead of it. Not sure I would pay market price for it based on this note but an enjoyable wine. A-

    March 11, 2020 - Light on its feet. Some oak. Bright red strawberry fruit, but still a tad austere. 2006 can be a stern vintage. I would drink up relatively soon.

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot) A little softer, red fruits and faintly floral. In the mouth too, soft and a little silky with sweet fruit. There’s a little burst of complexity in the mid-palate before you are hit by some astringent tannin. I feel the oak showing more on the grainy texture than the aromas or flavours.
