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.
This is aromatically more elegant and spicier with its slightly riper array of red and dark currant and earth-scented nose. There is excellent detail and vibrancy to the more concentrated middle weight flavors that terminate in a dusty, cool and balanced finale that presently displays a touch of youthful austerity. core: 90 Points; Tasted: April 2015; Drink: 2020+; Issue: 58; Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2013 Volnay Caillerets 1er Cru has a vibrant bouquet, a mixture of both red and black fruit with a pastille-like freshness that lends it plenty of energy, brimming with vim and vigor. The palate is well balanced with succulent, quite juicy tannins, a keen citric thread of acidity and a slightly pointed, balsamic-tinged finish. This just feels a little angular at the moment.
