Bouchard Pere et fils Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot 1er cru 2005

The picture is a normal bottle, but the wine tried was actually a little ‘un: only 375ml, which is sometimes just the right amount. Moderation is my new motto. A terrific nose: rich fruits with minerals, undergrowth, blackberries, black cherries and raspberries. Minerals and red fruits on the palate, cherries and earth, and a sense of energy. Lots of goodness here, and richness without too much weight or heaviness, if you know what I mean. Great balance. Quite a special wine. Drink 2011-2018+. 93 points
