    The 2011 Volnay Premier Cru Clos De la Bousse d'Or Monopole of Domaine de le Pousse d’Or is an exceptional Burgundy wine. It is a 100% Pinot Noir wine aged on lees in oak barrels (20% new barrels) for 15 months. It displays a ruby-tinted dark red colour and gives way to a good aromatic complexity. The nose is dominated by black fruits and a woody note. The palate is full-bodied with delicate aromas and firm tannins.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is quite a lot of reduction on the nose of the Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or, but underneath is some quite decent redcurrant and fresh strawberry fruit that gradually unfurls in the glass. There is still some oak here to be resolved, but there is sufficient substance here to suggest that patience is all that is needed. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy on the opening. This is soft and caressing in the mouth with quite a sensual and well-balanced finish that neatly carries the oak. This is well crafted but will improve with another 18-24 months in bottle.
