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.

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.
