Domaine de la Pousse d’Or has for decades been a staple in fine dining restaurants and auction houses, standing alongside domaines like Romanée-Conti and Comte de Vogüé at the summit of the Burgundian quality pyramid. This historic Volnay estate was originally part of a much larger domaine that included names like Romanée-Conti and Clos de Tart, and today Pousse d'Or is renowned for its elegant, refined Pinot Noir sourced from some of Burgundy's most hallowed terroirs. Estate Wine Brokers is thrilled to present vertical lots of two top 1er Cru and one Grand Cru that recently arrived from the cellars of the domaine itself:
