1943 Bouchard Pere & Fils Volnay

11-14% alc.. You never open a bottle like this with high expectations, but it is nevertheless always a thrill when the wine is this old. · The black cork came out cleanly. The wine was a surprise to all. The color was medium ruby with only a trace of orange tinge at the rim. There was still notable sweet red fruits on the palate with a little spice and fecundity. The wine was delicate with cashmere tannins. It was a brief, but memorable fling. because the wine was spent an hour later. Reviewed August 24, 2007
