2018 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru "Clos de la Bousse d'Or"

SKU #1531547 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A lovely red and black fruit nose here with bright berry notes. The palate is juicy and vibrant, so fresh and lively with a good density of fruit balanced with high acidity. It has soft, barely-there tannins, silky on the palate with cherry flesh coating the sides of the mouth. An elegant and lively wine with plenty of life ahead. From a 2.13 hectare walled plot just down from Volnay town. The wine is aged on the lees for 16-18 months, of which 12 months are spent in oak barrels. Organic and biodynamic farming.

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, pure and super-fresh nose reveals notes of intensely floral-inflected black berries, plum, violet and a beautiful range of spice elements. This is arguably the most refined wine in the range texturally speaking with its punchy and well-detailed flavors that terminate in a serious and tautly muscular finish. As pretty as it is though, I would still observe that it isn't quite as refined as say the 2010, 2014 or 2017 versions. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

91-93 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "The first sample, served blind in the pairing of Clos de la Bousse d'Or. Fresh glowing purple, this is slightly more advanced in maturity than some, with a sprightly deep raspberry fruit and some spice. Just a little acidity." (12/2019)
