Refined versus bolted flours?

Can someone explain to me the difference between a commercially refined flour versus a cloth bolted flour? Example:

King Arthur Bleached Bread Flour vs. Anson Mills Mediterranean White

My guess is that they will perform somewhat differently. Will the cloth bolted flour perform a bit more like a whole grain flour?
