The Pousse d’Or domaine at Volnay was established in 1954. Its vineyards are anything but ordinary, consisting as they do mainly of premier and grand crus in the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. The domaine’s 18 hectares yield 90,000 bottles annually and are managed in a spirit of respect for terroir.
Le Domaine de la Pousse d’Or can be traced back to the Dukes of Burgundy and the year 1100. Since 1997, its new owner Patrick Landanger has invested considerable resources both in the vineyards themselves and in the arrangements for vinification and elevage.
This is also quite spicy with its broad array of dark currant, plum, lavender, game and sandalwood. There is excellent size, weight and power to the textured and palate coating flavors that possess fine concentration along with impressive depth on the balanced, intense and driving finish. This is a big but not particularly austere example from the Hill of Corton and should be approachable after 6 to 8 years but reward 12 to 15.
