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.
As is often the case, this is aromatically similar to the regular cuvée but even spicier and slightly cooler as well. The sleek, refined and more intensely mineral-driven flavors possess fine depth and better persistence on the firmer finish though there is a hint of acid tang that will probably slowly dissipate.
