    ($65-$90) Medium red. Shy but precise aromas of raspberry, strawberry and flowers. Then tight and a bit youthfully bound-up in the mouth, showing less early sweetness and flesh than the Bousse d'Or. But this vineyard, at the edge of Santenots, produces a masculine, minerally style of wine. This calls for at least five years of cellaring.

    Beguiling aromas of animal fur, blackberries, dark cherries, and violets can be found in the nose of the 2002 Volnay En Caillerets Clos des 60 Ouvrees. Viscous, deep, and chewy, this muscular wine boasts immense concentration and length. Its thickly textured personality reveals blackberry jam, candied dark cherries, and a myriad spices. Its prolonged finish exhibits exquisitely ripe tannin. Though I've been in love with the 1990 for years, this 60 Ouvrees may well surpass it!

    Light on the nose, but convincing. Lots of rich flavours, though more delicate than Clos de la Bousse d'Or. Very good winemaking. Great balance. CS

    Medium-deep red with a hint of brown at the rim. Full-blown, sexy aromas of oxidized raspberry jam, black olive tapenade and mocha torrefaction. A point right now, conveying a silky texture, sound acidity and lovely lift to its flavors of plum, red berries and roasted herbs. Finishes plush and sweet, with substantial ripe but suave tannins and superb length. Perfect today owing to its sheer sucrosite but there's no real rush to drink this. - Stephen Tanzer

    Here there is elegance and complexity to burn with a simply dazzling array of spicy black fruit aromas nuanced by a pungent minerality and a subtle warm earth quality. The medium weight, extremely rich flavors offer serious depth and solid weight and punch with a level of dry extract that completely coats and stains the palate. The incredibly long finish is precise and pure with impeccable balance and this should be capable of aging for a good 15 years yet be approachable after 5 to 7.

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 state-of-the-art equipment. Since 1505 this domaine has been gracefully representing Volnay and it continues to do so today.
