Winemaker Notes

Dark, ruby-red color with a rich, berry bouquet, enhanced by well-integrated oak. Rich and subtle on the palate with lots of tannin, but no harshness. A fine wine with good aging potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Bousse d'Or, from the 2.13-hectare climat located just outside the village in limestone soils, has an appealing, almost languid bouquet without dispensing with the requisite delineation. It unfolds at its own pace with dark cherries, cassis and a scintilla of black tea. The palate has a sorbet-fresh entry with hints of dark chocolate informing the luscious dark berried fruit. There is good density and length on the finish with freshness from start to finish. This should turn out to be a pretty, approachable Volnay.

Domaine de la Pousse d'Or, France
Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Winery Image
The Pousse d'Or domaine at Volnay was established in 1954. Its vineyards are anything but ordinary, consisting as they do mainly of premier and grand crus in the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay.

Since 1997, its new owner Patrick Landanger has invested considerable resources both in the vineyards themselves and in the arrangements for vinification and elevage.

In pursuit of ever-higher quality, he is animated by profound respect for his terroirs and this guides his ambition to share his passion for the great wines of Burgundy with the world at large.

On the hillsides between Pommard and Meursault, Volnay is one of two villages in the Côte de Beaune that is recognized for its extraordinary Pinot noir. Pommard is the other; the rest of the villages are most known for some of the most exceptional Chardonnay in the world. While Volnay Pinot noir tends to be light in color and more delicate than that of Pommard, they typically stand on par with each other in regards to quality and demand.

Volnay can’t claim any Grands Crus vineyards but more than half of it has achieved Premier Cru status. Volnay Premiers Crus vineyards stretch across the entire village from northeast to southwest, abutting and actually falling “into” Meursault. Where they merge is a vineyard called Les Santenots. Pinot noir grows in this Meursault Premier Cru but since that village is most associated with stellar whites, the Pinot noir from Les Santenots, takes the name Volnay Santenots. Immediately above it are Volnay’s other prized Premier Cru, Le Cailleret, Champans, Clos des Chênes and Le Cailleret.

Volnay Pinot noir are earthy with red or blue fruit. Aromas such as smoke, herbs, forest, cocoa and spice are common and on the palate they are gorgeous and concentrated with finesse but won’t truly charm you without some age.
