Area under vine: 0.4221 hectares (9.86 ouvrées). Sun exposure: South-east facing. Soil: The soil contains limestone and clay, and is very stony. Feusselottes means "little holes". The soil is shallow, which accounts for the wine's mineral aftertaste. Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir. Fermentation: The grapes are hand picked into small crates, sorted in the vat room and 100% destemmed. Cold fermentation for 7 days is followed by temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with two pigeages (punching the cap) a day and maceration for 21 days. Barrel-ageing: Aged on the lees in oak barrels (30% new) for 15 months, with late-occurring, natural malolactic fermentation. Neither fined nor filtered. Racked and bottled by gravity flow.
The history of Domaine de la Pousse D'Or is truly ancient and can be traced back to the twelth century. Concentrated in the village of Volnay until recently, the new owner since 1997, Patrick Landanger, has enhanced the identity of the domaine with the purchase of several quality plots including vineyards in Puligny Caillerets, Clos de La Roche and Domaine Moine in Chambolle Musigny.
The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Feusselottes shows a much more aromatic, lifted side of Chambolle than the Groseilles, which precedes it in this tasting. Sweet floral notes meld into bright red berries in a classy, understated Chambolle that should drink nicely pretty much right out of the gate. Finely cut, chalky tannins give the wine much of its drive and focus. Drink: 2017 - 2032.
Good dark red-ruby. Medicinal black fruits and mint on the nose, lifted by a violet note. Then surprisingly pliant in the mouth, offering a juicy quality to the saline dark fruit and violet flavors. This rather suave wine is sweet but not at all over the top, with ripe acidity and broad, fine-grained tannins providing shape and structure. Landanger pointed out that the Chambolle-Musigny vines that came to him in his purchase of vineyards from the old Moine-Hudelot estate in 2008 are all in the range of 25 to 35 years of age. He uses wood cuves to vinify these wines.
