"Good dark red. Very ripe, complex aromas of black cherry, licorice, stone and gingerbread, lifted by a violet topnote. Sweet, lush and generous, conveying a strong impression of dry extract. Very rich, deep, silky Volnay with a firmly tannic, very long finish. Quite suave." (IWC)

"Proust noted that hail damage ruined about 15% of the crop but that Bouchard took no chances and declassified about 50% of the total. Relatively strong reduction dominates the nose though there is ample body and richness to the suave yet precise flavors that exude a fine minerality on the very ripe finish that offers excellent volume if less complexity than usual. This is also extremely ripe and some, including me, will likely find it to be a bit too much so." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Exquisite fruit and spice aromas. On the palate, perfect harmony between structure and elegance: rich, complex and voluptuous. Very good ageing potential.
