    A much more deeply pitched nose with a broad array of beguiling red, blue and violet aromas lead to delicious, elegant, fresh and pure medium weight plus flavors that are almost aggressively mineral in character, particularly on the precise, linear and driving finish. This will need plenty of time as it's like a coiled spring at present but the vibrancy and underlying potential are most impressive.

    Bright crimson. Pretty flashy bright fruit too with a certain pungency although very dry and still quite tannic. May flesh out to something more beguiling but so concentrated that it seems to have a much longer life than the Premiers Crus.

    Good medium red. Captivating, nuanced nose combines cherry, rose petal, blood orange and an exotic suggestion of white fruits that Landanger says is characteristic of this grand cru. Fat, chewy and sweet, but also quite suave thanks to its vinosity and structure. This builds impressively toward the back and displays impressive length and grip.

    The 2005 Corton Bressandes displays positively peachy, generically-ripe aromas (pushing 14% alcohol, which is the maximum here this vintage, eventually generating a faint bit of warmth) and with notes of cedar and a slightly funky gaminess behind that. It comes onto the palate with a certain roughness of tannin, though with persistently sweet fruit that takes on more Pinot-typical berry character and a broad, beefy richness. This big-boned, undeniably dense wine was only bottled for a week when I tasted which may account for some of its roughness and awkwardness, but I wonder also about the premature gaminess.

Domaine Pousse d'Or stands as one of the most recognized names in Burgundy. Originally called Bousse d'Or—which translates to ‘Golden Earth’—this domaine has undergone tremendous change in recent decades. Under the direction of Gerard Potel for the past 30 years, the house has established its trademark style and quality. In 1997 it was purchased by Patrick Landanger, a successful electromechanical engineer, who began making improvements in both the vineyard and cellar. He built a new gravity-flow winery, and invested in state-of-the-art equipment. Since 1505 this domaine has been gracefully representing Volnay and it continues to do so today.
