Lot #223. Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 JG.
"Gérard Potel made absolutely stunning wines at Pousse d’Or in 1985 and his Clos de la Bousse d’Or is a superb example of the vintage. The wine has just started to reach its apogee and offers up a magically complex bouquet of cherries, red plums, beetroot, fresh herb tones, espresso, woodsmoke and a fine base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tangy, with a superb core of red fruit, great transparency, modest tannins and excellent length and grip on the focused and very pure and classy finish. This wine has years and years of life ahead of it, but if one has more than a few bottles in the cellar, now is a great time to be drinking it." John Gilman, View From The Cellar, Aug 2020
Provenance: The Jamésie Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $800
