2011 Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or Domaine de la Pousse d'Or

Average critic rating : 92.0 points



A strikingly elegant nose features notes of ripe, pure and airy red currant, briar, cassis and spice nuances. There is an equally pure and refined character to the lacy medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the beautifully focused, balanced and impressively lengthy finish. As it typically is, this is a wine of finesse and grace. A classic Volnay. Tasted: Apr 15, 2013. Drink: 2019+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is quite a lot of reduction on the nose of the Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or, but underneath is some quite decent redcurrant and fresh strawberry fruit that gradually unfurls in the glass. There is still some oak here to be resolved, but there is sufficient substance here to suggest that patience is all that is needed. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy on the opening. This is soft and caressing in the mouth with quite a sensual and well-balanced finish that neatly carries the oak. This is well crafted but will improve with another 18-24 months in bottle. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

The domaine de la Pousse d’Or, near Beaune, has been owned since 1997 by Patrick Landanger, who has invested considerably in the Burgundian estate. The 18 hectare vineyard covers mainly premier and grand cru sites in Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. Domaine de La Pousse d’Or wines are some of the top examples from the region.
