Here the strikingly elegant and expressive nose is a step up in aromatic depth with real depth to the airy, pure and stunningly complex dark berry fruit aromas nuanced by hints of spice and warm iron-infused earth that give way to rich, full and sweet flavors that are harmonious, balanced, fresh and precise, all wrapped in a wonderfully seductive and long finish. An impressive effort that is well worth a look. *Sweet Spot*
The 2005 Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or offers scents of plum, black raspberry, Asian spices, soy, noble fungus and wood smoke. In the mouth, it delivers tart (though ripe) black raspberry fruit with black truffle undertones and subtle spice and chalk, while managing to display a flattering creaminess. Fascinating fungal, fruit skin and mineral notes vie for attention in the finish. This strikes an ideal balance between flattering fat and underlying structure. Figure to cellar it for at least 12-15 years. (DS)
Good ruby-red. Superripe but reticent nose hints at blueberry and licorice, accented by orange rind and pepper. There's a pronounced earthy underbrush component to the black plum fruit. Strong soil tones here. Finishes with serious, building tannins. This one needs patience. (ST) 90+
