89-91 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): "The 2014 Volnay Village comes from clayey soils towards the bottom of the slope that lost 70% to 90% of their fruit due to hail damage. It had been racked two weeks previous to my visit when it was transferred back into barrel. It has a crisp, quite seductive bouquet in the making with wild strawberry and raspberry scents, a touch of vanilla in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin. There is nice backbone here, very fine minerality with tension and poise on the lightly grippy, tarry finish. This is a very fine Volnay Village from Thomas Bouley, one that seems to have been concentrated by the hail. Drink: 2017-2027. (Dec 2015)"
