Bouchard Pere et Fils Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot 1er Cru Domaine 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".
