Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay En Caillerets 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"Wine Advocate (Rovani):90-93: The 2002 Corton Clos du Roi reveals scents of raspberries, flowers, and cherries. Medium-bodied and pure, it is a slightly firmer wine than the Bressandes. Its flavor profile displays regal layers of red and black fruits intermingled with stones. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020."" 91-94 Tanzer: ""Good bright ruby-red. Fruit-driven, slightly exotic but refined aromas of plum, raspberry and licorice, with the same suggestion of peach I picked up in the 2001 Bressandes. More fruity and less minerally than the Bressandes (whereas it's the other way around with the 2001s), with a silky, lush texture and impressive density without excess weight. A broad, aromatic wine of noteworthy finesse and length on the aftertaste. Here, too, the tannins are quite fine."" (3/04) 92+ ($75-$100; 25- and 35-year-old vines; the vines here have the same exposure as those in Bressandes but are a bit higher on the hill) Medium red, a bit less saturated than the Bressandes. Ripe aromas of plum, raspberry, chocolate and smoke, with a note of peach. Even sweeter than the Bressandes, with a sensual texture. But good underlying minerality gives this wine noteworthy cut and finesse. Nicely delineated owing to its sound acidity. Finishes quite firm, but with the tannins coming late.(3/05) """
