Volnay, Côte De Beaune

La Pousse d'Or

Clos des 60 Ouvrées Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Nose has cranberry, blackberry, over-ripe raspberry, prune, black licorice and muddy garden soil, ripe plum and melted butter.

Palate has dried blackberry, raspberry, dried cranberry, black licorice, medium acidity with a long finish; Great wine.

1500ml means your care. ❤️ Decanted 5H, much more time appreciated.

Paired to Asian-style food, tonight with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice with lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard. Locally raised NY pork (Highland Farm, Old Chatham, NY).

Domaine des Croix (David Croix)

Beaune Premier Cru Pinot Noir 2016

@Delectable Wine this is the Beaune 1er. Pop and pour. A touch austere at first, but really needed air to get going. After 1.5 hrs much more giving. On the nose: a touch of game, pure wild strawberry, soft cola, a hint of stems. On the palate: fantastic acidity, savory red fruit, which complements the nose so well, brambles, and a dusting of tannin on the close...stunning with some air. — 2 days ago

Domaine Rapet Père et Fils

Beaune Les Cents Vignes 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Pop and pour, notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: lovely plum.and blackberry, oak spice, soft cocoa powder, soft herbs in the background; very clearly delineated flavors. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density; spicy strawberry, and dark fruit...excellent tannin on the spicy finish. This is definitely structured to improve with some age, but it is already so drinkable now. Yum! — 9 days ago

Nose is floral and bright. Dusty as well. Lovely depth and clarity here. Licorice. Cherry flower. Really impressive. Floral, herbal, sous bois explosion. Chavy’s reds are so classic. Elegant, juicy and structured. Nice tiny berry fruit intensity and really perfumed in the mouth. Long and with structure to burn. Needs 10 years but fun to peek now. Excellent. — 15 days ago

En Carelle Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Great! Glad I found this one today and still have 1-2 in cellar; great smell taste, could have some more age, give it 4-7 more years I think and your competing with some great wines of the region — 4 days ago

Les Angles Volnay Pinot Noir 2002

2002 somehow ageless & so well integrated. Trés bien élevé. Deep purple, slight rim gradation. Meaty palate, leather, gripping. — 19 days ago

Pierre Ponnelle

Volnay Pinot Noir 1981

A producer that I enjoyed many times over the years at Bern’s drinking their 40’s thru 60’s GC’s where back in the day they say the wines were made by Roumier. Dried cherry, strawberry fruits, earth, baking spice, orange peel & rose petal. Lighter in body than previous btls but still enjoyable. — 16 days ago

High energy aromas, the architecture is bit shapeless but is broad and deep. Still lot of potential held in reserve. — 3 days ago
