Reviews For This Wine


 
Burghound | 93

A pure and gorgeously complex nose offers up notes of extract of black pinot fruit, stone, anise, sandalwood and lavender nuances. The flavor profile displays more volume and richness than the regular Caillerets with perhaps a bit more minerality as well before culminating in a palate soaking finish that goes on and on. Note however that this is a distinctly firm wine in the context of the 2011 vintage and will need at least a decade of bottle age to arrive at its peak. A beautiful effort.

Good bright red. Dark, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and violet. Less forthcoming today than the Bousse d'Or, with firm stony minerality giving precision and grip to the flavors of black cherry, crushed stone and garrigue . Very good density and depth here, and lovely persistence for the year.

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.
