  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($60) Bright ruby-red. Dark berries, plum and licorice on the nose. Juicy, spicy and complex, with youthful flavors of black fruits, mocha and minerals. Ripe, integrated acidity and firm tannins give this persistent wine a solid structure for aging.

    A hint of reduction is in evidence from the bottling and if you're inclined to open a bottle young out of curiosity, I would decant it first. The aromatic profile is similar if perhaps slightly more deeply pitched with richer and earthier flavors blessed with finer tannins and very good phenolic maturity. The only nit is that the finish is not overly complex though this may come with mid-term cellaring.

    Deep crimson. Quite rich raspberry essence aromas with lots of grunt and chew and no shortage of acidty. A bit brutal. Very youthful and embryonic - the ripeness of 2005 is not shining through.

    The 2005 Santenay Clos Tavennes showed no ill effects of having been hailed on this year, and the minuscule crop indeed was surely a factor influencing the wine's impressive concentration. Smoky, gamey notes mingled with lightly cooked mulberry, plum and blackberry characterize the nose. A deep richness of black fruits and roasted meat flavors fill the mouth and there is a lot more glycerin and weight than in the Gravieres, as well as an invigorating fruit skin tartness and an expansive, staining finish of black fruits, brown spices, nut oils, raw meat and chalk. Nearly a third of the site is in vines planted in 1920 when Pousse d'Or was still jointly owned with Romanee Conti.

  • 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.
