2010 Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru 'Clos de la Bousse d'Or'
SKU: B212/FRRegular price $199.95
In 1855, the winery was part of a larger domaine that included such names as Romanée-Conti and Clos de Tart. The domaine changed owners a number of times until legend Gérard Potel took the reins, placing the estate’s wines on the map, with the elegant, refined style that Pousse d’Or is still known for today. In 1997, Patrick Landanger purchased the winery and its vineyards and added an impressive collection of Côte de Nuits vineyards. Pousse’s attention to detail and dedication to sustainable viticulture is serious, with grape bunches being destemmed, fermented on indigenous yeasts, and wines aged 18 months in French oak barrels, with between 30 to 50% new wood, depending on the cru. ‘Clos de la Bousse’ is a walled monopole located next to the Volnay town hall. A quarter of vines was planted in 1958; the rest in the late 1960s and 1970s.
