    (picked at the end, on September 29): Good dark red-ruby. Wild black cherry and dark chocolate dominate the nose. Sweet but a bit youthfully imploded, with slightly tart acidity keeping the black cherry and licorice flavors under wraps today. Very tight-grained and rather tough going today, but with a chocolatey ripeness lurking. The broad, spreading finish features substantial tannins that reach the teeth. (The Bonnes-Mares showed porty, rather stunted aromas and some volatile acidity. Landanger was similarly surprised by its showing and sent off a sample to the lab. Turns out it was still in the middle of its malolactic fermentation!)

  • 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.
