Pulled from a store shelf where it had been sitting for who knows how long, this seemed like it could have shown better. A solid wine, with coffee, orange, mineral accents, but a bit dull on the palate.

(Pousse d'Or Volnay Caillerets) Medium garnet core with a more mahogany rim. The nose started wide and forward with bloody, earthy tones. Plenty of time in the glass and you settle to a mineral, raisined cranberry expression, very lovely. The palate is much more understated and lithe, still with just a faint ‘jarr’ to the fine tannin. The acidity is good and you’ll find an equally good intensity from the mid-palate into the finish. Could still do with another 3 or so years in the cellar, but no crime to drink now.
(Pousse d'Or Volnay Caillerets) Medium ruby colour with a darker core. The nose is a bright mix of sweet, minty raspberry tart that overlays more meaty aspects. Really lovely texture, the tannins are still there on the finish, just slightly forward but fine-grained and not dominating. The well concentrated fruit is that same raspberry red colour with the minty notes of the nose still showing. Good acidity that follows through the raisin-tinged and eventually creamy finish. Certainly tasty enough to warrant a couple more purchases.
