  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($115-$250) Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose offers wild dark fruits, smoke, licorice and pepper. Dense on entry, then sweet and highly concentrated if youthfully reticent in the middle. Young and quite primary but possesses explosive fruit. The classy finish features broad, thoroughly buffered tannins and superb rising length and sweetness. This one should reward a decade of cellaring and may eventually merit an even higher rating.

    Solid, rather simple at this stage. Robust but not desperately concentrated. Quite a bit of tannin still but I'm afraid I can't see either the weight or the lift of a Grand Cru here. Very earthbound finish.

    What a contrast to the Bressandes is Landanger's 2005 Corton Clos du Roi! While bottled at the same time, this has its act together today, from intense aromas of black raspberry, fresh raw meat, cedar, praline, and cinnamon, through a polished, refined, juicy, clear-fruited and sweetly marrowy palate, to its refined tannins and chalky, meaty, darkly-fruited finish. I'd revisit this in 5-7 years and anticipate considerable positive evolution thereafter.

    Texturally the wine is all about silk. Definitively BUrgundy. Surprisingly approachable.

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.
