Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90-93

Bright ruby-red. Wild aromas of blackberry, chocolate and meat are considerably less expressive today than those of the Bressandes. Broad and large-scaled but backward, showing darker fruit flavors than the Bressandes. Finishes with big, horizontal tannins and excellent length. This should equal the Bressandes but will need a good five or six years in the cellar.

Burghound | Rating: 93

This trades elegance for greater complexity with its broad ranging aromas of spicy and pungently earth black berry fruit liqueur, black tea and intensely animale suffused nose. There is excellent size, weight and power to the big and well-muscled flavors that possess plenty of supporting dry extract that coats the palate on the driving, even explosive finish. This should abundantly repay mid to longer-term cellaring.

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.
