La Pousse d'Or Clos des 60 Ouvrées Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

$165

...features the oldest vines in the estate’s Volnay holdings, more than half of them planted in the mid fifties. Black cherry, purple plum, pistachio, ginger, and cumin inform the nose. On the palate this offers old vines creaminess, flattering glycerin, and yet also a persistently bright freshness of black fruits. A deep, lingering, faintly caramel-inflected bitter-sweetness, spice, and chalk further testifies to the concentration in this wine... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Punching so far above its weight it broke the scale. Concentrated but light as a feather. Elegant as all heck.

13% alc. Full, rich and a bit sweet. Too much vanilla for my personal taste.

Still with bracing acidity. A meaty glossy red fruit character. Probably at it's apogee. Still a fair amount of tannin, but the finish won't hold up after a further few years.
