Compared to the expressiveness of the prior wines, here the nose is reserved to the point of being discreet, revealing only glimpses of even more complex spicy blue berry and violet suffused fruit that introduces big, rich and quite ripe flavors underpinned by excellent mid-palate concentration and a firm if subtle mineral backbone that runs the full length of the magnificently long finish. This is flat out terrific.

($120) Good deep ruby-red. Pure, vibrant nose offers blackberry, violet, minerals and licorice, lifted by a minty nuance. Densely packed but juicy, with lovely precision to its flavors of black fruits, mint, minerals and clove. Very spicy and very young. Wonderfully ripe without any loss of vibrancy. The very sweet tannins are thoroughly enrobed by the wine's sheer density of material. This spreads out impressively over the palate, finishing with terrific length and energy. A major success in 2005.

The 2005 Volnay Caillerets Clos des 60 Ouvrees (like the Clos d'Audinac and Clos de la Bousse d'Or, a monopole) features the oldest vines in the estate's Volnay holdings, more than half of them planted in the mid fifties. Black cherry, purple plum, pistachio, ginger, and cumin inform the nose. On the palate this offers old vines creaminess, flattering glycerin, and yet also a persistently bright freshness of black fruits. A deep, lingering, faintly caramel-inflected bitter-sweetness, spice, and chalk further testifies to the concentration in this wine, which surpasses the Bousse d'Or in structure and gives it a hard run for its money in the charm department. Check on this in 8-10 years but then figure on another decade of improvement in the cellar.

About This Producer


Domaine Pousse d'Or stands as one of the most recognized names in Burgundy. Originally called Bousse d'Or - which translates to Golden Earth - this domaine has undergone tremendous change in recent decades. Under the direction of Gerard Potel for the past 30 years, the house has established its trademark style and quality. In 1997 it was purchased by Patrick Landanger, a successful electromechanical engineer, who began making improvements in both the vineyard and cellar. He built a new gravity-flow winery, and invested in new state-of-the-art equipment. Since 1505 this domaine has been gracefully representing Volnay and it continues to do so today.
