The Pousse d’Or domaine at Volnay was established in 1954. Its vineyards are anything but ordinary, consisting as they do mainly of premier and grand crus in the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. The domaine’s 18 hectares yield 90,000 bottles annually and are managed in a spirit of respect for terroir.
A more complex if less elegant nose offers notes of ripe dark berry fruit, warm earth and subtle spice notes that give way to rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the quite firm and powerful finish. This is a classic Clos l'Audignac that should be capable of aging effortlessly for at least ten years.
