The Volnay of the Vintage...
With so much praise and press circulating for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages of Burgundy, it seems that 2008 is getting forgotten about already.
Yes, 2008 is not as much as a blockbuster as the last three vintages, but the quality highs in 2008 are exceptional!
Here is a perfect example of how high the highs are in 2008.
The 2008 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or is amazing! This is a great bottle of Volnay that really impresses.
Antonio Galloni of the Wine Advocate call this wine "impeccable from start to finish...shows off its class and purity."
Also, we should point out that this particular Volnay is tied for the highest rated Volnay of the 2008 vintage from the Wine Advocate. And this gem of a wine is under $100 per bottle. Now getting one of the top wines of the vintage from Burgundy under $100 per bottle...that is a deal!
