What a huge 2015 success. Lovely nose of big cherry, cassis, crushed stones and so much intense minerality. Floral as well with lavender and mashed violets. Intense and gorgeous. Palate is just a fruit bomb. Amazingly concentrated yet elegant as well with huge rich cherry fruit that is so sweet and gorgeously defined. Wonderful acidity and freshness. Best showing yet.

Sometimes this is exactly what you want. Nose with a hint of licorice. Solid sweet fruit on the palate. Well balanced with that hint of cranberry on the finish. Went great with veal heart Ragu and veal tongue with lentils. I feel like I'm in France or Italy. Whatever.

Reserved aromas with hints of spice. Cardamon and cinnamon. All of the Pascal Bouley wines needs tons of air. Elegant and round on the palate with nice structure and super stoney minerals. Nice length. Great sweetness already. As it opens more fruit complexity starts to show. Needs hours. Will revisit.

Much better with air.

Pascal Bouley 14 Volnay - mineral, very pure, excellent, juicy and intense with super intense structure and ripeness and chalky finish. Juicy needs 5 years.

Now called pierrick. Wow. Big dense fruit. Not typical for volnay. Crazy density. Plums. Delicious. An odd year but awesome. Bought from fass selections.

Confused. Very aromatic with acids. Peat, complex. Slightly dry on short end.
