    ($105-$131) Dark red. Deeper, brooding aromas of black cherry and stone. Broader and fuller than the Caillerets but light on its feet, with black cherry, licorice and menthol flavors. Still rather backward today but pliant on the finish, with suave tannins spreading out to dust the palate.

    Oak dominates the nose of this which is positively New Worldy. Sweet and a little confected. Bitter finish. Others liked this.

    The Pousse d'Or flagship 2006 Volnay Clos De La Bousse d'Or is unusually smoky and gamey in aroma for a youthful wine from this site. Dried fruits and pungent, exotic spices ' ginger, allspice, coconut, and tamarind ' convey undeniable allure, but spice segues into a slightly tough chew of fruit skins and resinous stickiness in a finish that wants for a pit of transparency and lift. That said, it is of course early days for this well-concentrated Volnay, and I am sure it has significant aging potential, though I suspect it may quickly evolve in a decidedly gamey, leathery direction. Patrick Landanger reports having fermented longer and worked harder to extract flavor from his 2006 crop, and while the results are undeniably concentrated, on the occasion of my tasting, several suffered a bit from opacity and tannic severity.

    This is less aromatically elegant than the Caillerets but more complex with a layered nose of red and blue pinot fruit, earth and mineral hints that are also reflected back by the nicely rich and full yet detailed flavors that are supple and beautifully textured on the admirably long finish. This is a wine of finesse as the tannins are extremely fine. Lovely juice.

  • 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.
