This is definitely nice. Typical Volnay 1er Cru. Red fruited, sappy on the palate with essence of cherry, some nice spice, forest floor, and a very decent finish. Ultra-clean fruit in this wine. My only complaint is that it seems a little non-descript and lacking in character. Maybe the fruit is a little too clean? Either way, good wine, but nothing spectacular, and in my opinion, not worth the roughly $50 it is going for these days. This wine continues my streak of Bouchard Burgs that are good, but no more than that.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
