Community Tasting Notes (average 91.3 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 8 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by yofog on 10/4/2014: An extremely pretty nose here, and a nicely dense but light-on-its-feet core. Very good. (843 views)
 Tasted by zTroy on 8/13/2014 & rated 94 points: Very minerally for a red but nice drinking. (738 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 4/6/2014: Knightsbridge 2011 Burgundy Tasting and Sale (Northbrook, IL): Tasting, brief note. Ripe and dense fruit with good spice aromas. Slightly more black, dense and meaty flavors than I normally expect from Volnay, but this is long and very balanced. Definitely good. (1470 views)
 Tasted by jrobs7777 on 1/15/2014: Pousse d'Or of Volnay (Bistro 7 (7 N. 3rd St., Philadelphia)): Cooler red fruit. Touch menthol. Nice core of fruit. Lighter color. (1219 views)
 Tasted by Drankard on 9/18/2013: This has to be the ripest Burgundy I have ever had but done very well. Ripeness NOT verging on chocolaty. Dark fruit flavors, wonderful layers of fruit, real depth here. Great acidity on the finish to give the wine some shape. I struggled with this wine, I don't know if I want to hate it or like it. What does time bring? Burgundy purists stay away. (1275 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 2/6/2013: Man is this killer. (1229 views)
 Tasted by peternelson on 11/21/2012 & rated 90 points: Expressive, cassis, animal fur, leather; rich, full, tannic, high acidity. This has good potential for 2011. 90-91. (931 views)

La Pousse d'Or

Producer website

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.
