    The 2015 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has more finesse than the premier crus from Volnay and Pommard that preceded it during my tasting at the domaine, quite floral with pure dark black cherry and hints of anise developing with aeration. The palate has a gentle grip in the mouth. The tannins feel firm lending this masculinity, although there appears to be sufficient fruit to back it up. There is pleasant saline aftertaste in situ although I would like to see more finesse developing during the remainder of its barrel maturation.

  • 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.
