| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 2/25/2015: From the cork pull its still rather un-evolved. A great vintage to say the least. Depp but light on the palate, Obviously of amazing breed. Incredibly long finish. Probably needs at least five more years. (440 views)|
| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 9/19/2014: Coming along nicely I would say, just opened. (543 views)|
| ||Tasted by astroman on 9/19/2014: Slightly funky but very nice on the palate. Good depth. Beautiful acid and finish. (499 views)|
| ||Tasted by rsbeck on 8/21/2013 & rated 89 points: Straight ahead four square Pinot flavors, not particularly complex, but tasty and distinguished by refreshing bright acidity. (1064 views)|
| ||Tasted by johnh1001 on 8/15/2013 & rated 89 points: I didn't know that Pousse d' Or made a Chambolle. Initially very forward nose of cherries and strawberries. Sweet and ripe but simple on the palate. Took on much more minerality with time and the sweetness faded. (896 views)|
| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 2/6/2013: Noticeably richer than the Volnay 60. More sweet raspberry fruit but still in the Pousse style -- lively, very wonderful stuff. (1225 views)|
| ||Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/21/2012: Pousse d'Or Cellar Visit and Tasting (Volnay): Tasting at Domaine. Bright red cherry aromas. Same bright, tart red cherry on palate with a linear, straightforward, slightly simple finish. (1388 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Côte de Nuits on weinlagen.info
Chambolle-MusignyChambolle-Musigny is one of the smallest appellations of the Côte de Nuits, although given the tiny, fragmented nature of Burgundy vineyards, it manages to fit two exceptional Grand Crus (Bonnes Mares and Le Musigny) and a couple of dozen Premieres Crus. These wines are known for delicacy and tend to be light in body, but concentrated and with fragrant bouquets. The critic Robert M. Parker Jr. quotes French poet Gaston Roupnel as likening the region's wines to "silk and lace."
