The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets "Ancienne Cuvée Carnot" would definitely be one of my picks from Bouchard Père this vintage. It has a lovely, expressive, terroir-driven bouquet with red cherry, crushed strawberry and wet limestone. There is impressive delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with caressing, supple tannin that belie the structure underneath. I like the energy, the frisson here and the length lingers in the mouth, a tang of orange peel and Moroccan spice on the aftertaste. This comes recommended - chapeau! Wine Advocate 92-94

Here the generous wood treatment presently fights somewhat with the menthol, cassis, spice and essence of black cherry liqueur-suffused nose. There is a beguiling texture to the vibrant, detailed and intensely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while delivering marvelous persistence on the very firmly structured finish. This is very definitely built-to-age and it's going to need it. I would add that this is unlikely to make an especially good candidate for early consumption so patience absolutely required.
