Community Tasting Notes (average 90.9 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 16 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Rezy13 on 12/22/2014 & rated 91 points: Double Blind $80 - $100 (Bin 75): Bright maroon to rim; Burg, medicinal, cherry, sour, plum skin, sweet, juicy, limestone; some clay, harder on the palate, cherry pit but sweeter, concentrated, almost closed, masculine; good, would like to see it unwind a bit. (1139 views)
 Tasted by Robert Pavlovich on 12/25/2013 & rated 93 points: PnP. Brilliant, if tightly coiled aromatics of sappy strawberry/raspberry, minerals, and spice.

Flavors repeat on the palate with good freshness, and the tannins are obviously young but moderate enough to enjoy now. Just a hint of underlying green notes which adds to its freshness and complexity. Finishes medium plus, with good persistence. Balances masculine and feminine qualities very well. An excellent Caillerets. (2365 views)
 Tasted by Robert Pavlovich on 10/27/2013 & rated 91 points: Big floral nose. Good balance and medium weight palate of violets, tart cranberry/cherry fruit, and subtle oak framing toward the back. Actually really loved the oak level and overall tannin level of this wine. Very judicious and synergistic. (2159 views)
 Tasted by chatters on 10/19/2013: Ultimo lunch time tasting (Ultimo wine centre (but now vintage cellars)): Toasty oak, spice, sour crushed strawberries. On the palate the wine has tight tannin, fresh red fruit but the tannin is the boss at the moment. Young, bit of a puppy. Needs time. Nice. (2085 views)
 Tasted by skifree on 9/29/2013 & rated 92 points: Went through multiple stages over 3 nights. At first closed, then the second night had the dark fruit, game, and mineral noted by others, with a long finish. Fruit most notable on the nose. (2075 views)

 Tasted by spacewrangler on 3/29/2013: Minerals, earth and musky black fruit aromas on the nose - rich and velvety with great depth of fruit on the palate. (1408 views)
 Tasted by peternelson on 11/21/2012 & rated 93 points: ***Smoky, sous bois, mixed raspberry/strawberry notes with a touch of fur; silky, great concentration with impeccable balance. Outstanding wine for sure. (1573 views)
 Tasted by rsbeck on 11/20/2012 & rated 90 points: Popped, poured, followed over next hour. Solid citizen. Pleasing balance of fruit, acid, mineral, and oak spice. (1575 views)
 Tasted by Edouard84 on 11/18/2012 & rated 90 points: No formal notes but I remember this wine to be very good.
And far too young! (1425 views)
 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 9/11/2012: A deeply coloured Volnay with real depth and concentration. Its loaded with sweet black cherry fruits and has a creaminess a la 2009 but with more supportive structure and a big lick of spicy oak. There are notes of liquorice and violets and it is stony on the finish and possesses great length. (1788 views)
 Tasted by stadler on 7/31/2012: Visite à la Pousse d'Or (Volnay, France): Robe assez sombre, nez de terre humide, fruit noir, notes de sous-bois. Il est assez fermé, peut-être en train de se re-fermer d'ailleurs, les tanins sont légèrement astringents, contrebalancés par une pointe d'acidité notable propre au millésime. (1594 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/21/2012: Pousse d'Or Cellar Visit and Tasting (Volnay): Tasting at Domaine. Aromas of black cherry, new oak spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Black and red cherry flavors with good spice and an expanding finish of bright, vibrant fruit. Very impressive 1er. (1573 views)

La Pousse d'Or

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.

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.
