While there is a whiff of VA it is more subtle while the aromatic profile is quite similar to that of regular cuvée save for the face that, like the En Caillerets - Amphore, the aromas are much more restrained and seemingly cooler plus there is no wood influence. There is a really lovely, indeed lilting mouth feel to the energetic and beautifully well-detailed flavors that deliver excellent length on the balanced finish. I suspect that the VA is sufficiently subtle that most readers would not be unduly bothered by it. 93/2026+

(90-92) The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Bousse d'Or was showing a little more new oak than the other premier crus (around 30% new), but it is nicely integrated with the blackberry and cassis fruit, scents of crushed violets surfacing with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe red cherry and cranberry flavors, fine, edgy tannin and good terroir expression with a dash of white pepper and spice toward the lively finish. One of my favorite Volnays from the domaine, this should age well over the next 12-15 years. -Neal Martin
