- Tasting Notes
An airy, cool and admirably pure nose offers up notes of exotic tea, spice, earth and layered red berry fruit aromas. The appealingly textured medium weight flavors are notably finer thanks to the fine-grained tannins that shape the utterly delicious finish that is underpinned by vibrant but not drying acidity. This is lovely and should amply reward 8 to 10 years of cellaring.

The 2013 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Bousse dOr has a fragrant and more floral bouquet than the Caillerets at this early stage, nicely defined with blackcurrants and wild strawberry. The palate is medium-bodied, the fruit spectrum here more red with strawberry and raspberry notes, a dash of white pepper and a fine lattice of tannins on the refined finish. This is a lovely Volnay in the making: very pure and sensual.

Medium red. A note of smoky reduction blew off to reveal open-knit aromas of wild strawberry and coffee. Sweet and densely packed, with red fruit and game flavors complicated and lifted by floral and pepper notes. Slightly dusty tannins are nicely supported by fruits and flowers on the back end.
