"89-91 out of 100…The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Bousse d'Or, from the 2.3-hectare monopole, has a sensual bouquet with ripe black cherries intermixed with iodine and crushed violet scents. I appreciate the focus and control here. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, layers of blackberry and boysenberry fruit with a dense, assertive finish that will require 4-6 years to soften. There is substance and"thrust" here - what I would like to see is more nuance develop on the finish." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
"(91-94) out of 100â™¥...Moderate amounts of wood and menthol elements frame the prominently ripe aromas of black pinot fruit liqueur aromas that are trimmed in an abundance of pretty spice nuances. The opulently, even lavishly rich medium weight flavors saturate the palate with sappy dry extract which also serves to buffer the more evidently mineral-inflected finish that is both firm and youthfully austere. Patience definitely required here." - Burghound
