Although Domaine de la Pousse D'Or has vineyards reaching back as far as the eighteenth century, it has only existed as it does today since 1964. It is a forward-thinking estate and one which was instrumental in pioneering a new technique for evaporating excess water to re-balance the must, resulting in less need for chaptalisation. It is perhaps unsurprising to learn, in view of this, that the Domaine is owned by a consortium of Australian shareholders.

La Pousse d'Or is located a few kilometres from Beaune, in the commune of Volnay. The 13 hectares of vineyard are spread among the communes of Volnay, Pommard, and Santenay, each producing distinctive and stylish wines.

The finest and most elegant red wines of the Côte de Beaune are grown in Volnay, a village that might be twinned with Chambolle- Musigny in the Côte de Nuits, for the high active chalk content in the soil and comparatively low clay content. Les Caillerets is a Premier Cru climat of the Volnay appellation in the Cote de Beaune. It is one of Volnay's pre-eminent vineyards, due to the high quality of the terroir, which is well suited to Pinot Noir. Caillerets Premier Cru wine is subtle and elegant, but with good concentration and complexity with notes of spice and red berry fruits.

A mentholated top note is present on the more deeply pitched nose of poached plum, violet, and discreet hints of fennel and cinnamon. There is excellent verve to the utterly delicious flavors that exude a highly attractive inner mouth perfumed before culminating in a chiseled, youthfully austere, and bitter cherry pit-inflected finale. Lovely.
