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.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Pousse d'Or 2008 Volnay Caillerets displays bright primary juiciness with an admirable sense of transparency to chalk and mineral salts typical of the site. There is a slight bit of roughness in the finish which I attribute in large part to the wine's having just been bottled. This is another wine of its collection that should merit a decade of cellaring. Landanger says that while the parcels that inform this were touched by hail, his monopole within the Caillerets - the Clos des 60 Ouvrees - was spared.
