90 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2016 Volnay Les Fremiets 1er Cru has a composed and harmonious bouquet with nicely integrated oak, perhaps just a little gamey in style although it does not dominate the overall aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy, quite firm tannin though coated with the fleshy fruit that one expects from a Volnay. I am not quite sure if the oak regime snugly fits the fruit profile. It seems to shave off too many edges on the finish, rending it simpler than it otherwise might have been. Perhaps bottle age will meliorate this Volnay since it certainly has good substance. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy." 11/18


91 Points, Stephen Brook, Decanter: "This 15-hectare domaine is based in Meursault, but Boillot is adept at making red wines too. This Volnay is a blend of 5 premiers crus, and after ageing in 25 percent new oak, it is bottled without fining or filtration. It's vividly aromatic, with ripe and juicy raspberry aromas, and all the Volnay finesse one would hope for. Medium-bodied, it's sleek, polished, and concentrated, with supple tannins, good depth and weight, and a delicate touch on the long finish." 09/19
