Pousse Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or 1er Cru 2011
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.
Le Domaine de la Pousse d’Or can be traced back to the Dukes of Burgundy and the year 1100. Since 1997, its new owner Patrick Landanger has invested considerable resources both in the vineyards themselves and in the arrangements for vinification and elevage.
Good red-ruby. Black raspberry, smoke and a whiff of exotic fruits on the nose. Silky and fine-grained, with a lush texture given clarity and lift by nicely integrated acidity. A rather intellectual but very easy-to-drink wine with intriguing soil tones and a subtle, mounting finish featuring suave tannins. Really spreads out to coat the palate on the end. This should make for superb drinking within three or four years but will be approachable from the outset...91-93" IWC 02/13 A strikingly elegant nose features notes of ripe, pure and airy red currant, briar, cassis and spice nuances. There is an equally pure and refined character to the lacy medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the beautifully focused, balanced and impressively lengthy finish. As it typically is, this is a wine of finesse and grace. A classic Volnay. 92/2019+ Allen Meadows; Burghound
