Description

Le Clos des 60 Ouvrées is a premier cru climat in Volnay and a monopole of the Domaine de la Pousse d'Or. It is technically a sub-division within the Caillerets climat and is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. The wines made here are complex but delicate, offering black cherry, minerality, and an elegant tannin structure.

The vineyard is at the top end of the Caillerets vineyard, on the steepest part of the slope. Clos des Chenes lies above, while Champans is on the northern edge. Clos des 60 Ouvrées is an example of Volnay's slightly more complex premier cru system, which, like Chablis, is much more fragmented than many other villages in the Côte de Beaune.

Medium deep crimson-purple, the bouquet is soft and ripe, at this stage, I think I may be preferring the barrel. The sweetness comes through, then a drier note. This is still a gorgeous wine, but without quite the same chiselled limestone note which demonstrated the authority of the barrel-aged Clos des 60 Ouvrées.

Once again, the Amphore demonstrates its advantages in very ripe vintages as the nose is appealingly fresh with an even spicier array of plum, violet, anise, and cinnamon scents. The delicious middle-weight flavours possess a gorgeous texture if perhaps not quite the same complexity on the balanced and overtly stony finish. I suspect that more depth will progressively develop over time. Drink: 2031+
