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.

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.

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

About This Producer

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 new state-of-the-art equipment. Since 1505 this domaine has been gracefully representing Volnay and it continues to do so today.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
