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.
Here the expressive nose is almost as elegant and even spicier with its dark pinot fruit, sandalwood and floral-scented aromas. There is the same lovely texture to the vibrant medium weight flavors that possess admirable mid-palate concentration before terminating in a palate coating, youthfully austere and firmly structured finish. This will clearly need plenty of cellar time to soften the firm tannic spine yet it should be approachable after only 5 to 7 years.
