Sold Out

International Wine Cellar, 90 Points- Bright red-ruby. Lively aromas of redcurrant, red licorice, mint and game. Juicy, spicy flavors of red berries and black cherry are rather tightly wound today. In a cooler, low-fat style, with good acidity and grip.

Premier cru Volnay Domaine de la Pousse d'Or 2008 Caillerets is a single-grape wine made from Pinot Noir. It comes from a 2.24 hectares plot, surrounded by a stone wall on its superior side. It benefits from a mainly calcareous marlstone soil from Aargau with, partially, calcareous-clay screes from Bathonian. This soil ensures the richness of elements and a good permeability for an extraordinary terroir. This cuvee was aged on lees in oak barrels (with 30% new Barrels) for 15 months. It possesses an interesting aromatic complexity. The palate is rich and deep for a full-bodied and balanced wine.
