The 2015 Volnay Vieilles Vignes comes from vines located just below the premier cru in a sunnier microclimate with clay-rich soils. It has an elegant bouquet with scents of blackberry leaf, cranberry, orange rind and a touch of wilted rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp and tensile tannin. There are tightly-wound, stony red berry fruit intermixed with orange rind and white pepper, the mouth tingling long after the wine has departed. Again, this is a strong and delicious offering from Thomas Bouley.(NM)
A much earthier set of aromas includes those of plum, black cherry and tea. There is markedly more volume to the richer and denser medium-bodied flavors that also exude a fine bead of minerality on the driving finish. This is a big and not particularly refined villages but it is powerful and balanced.
(from deep red soil over mother rock just below Carelles Dessous, at the bottom of the slope, with the vines ranging from 45 to 70 years of age; essentially all destemmed): Bright, dark red-ruby. Redcurrant aroma along with a distinct fresh blood note from the iron-rich soil. At once dense and juicy, conveying a lovely inner-mouth floral quality and a light touch. Delivers very good definition and flavor intensity for village wine. There's a tiny-berry creaminess and generosity of texture here that's perfectly supported by a strong saline spine.(ST)
