What I'm Drinking...

2005 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru en Caillerets

Half bottles are very convenient if you want to hasten the development of the wine a little, although there is always an element of risk. This fulfilled all my hopes and expectations. When I tasted the '05 Volnays after their arrival in Australia, I was entranced, and went hunting for them, only to find that I had been left in the wake of others, but did manage to find some wines here and there. Regardless, this wine had the perfect combination of young, supple and rich red cherry fruits, with cross-cut notes of spice when I tasted it before mushroom and oxtail risotto. Once this arrived, the wine gained a (large) second breath, filling my mouth with its heady sensuality.
