Bouchard Pere et Fils Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru 2017
According to tradition, "who has no vines in Caillerets, does not know
what Volnay is worth". Qualified as "Tête de cuvée" in the 1855 rating by Dr.
Lavalle, this appellation is the very example of finesse, elegance and
gracefulness. The 3.76 hectares of this exceptional Premier Cru have a
particular meaning for Bouchard Père & Fils, since it was the first vineyard
bought by the House in 1775. The Carnot family who owned the land is still
mentioned on the bottles "Ancienne Cuvée Carnot".
