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 Clos de La Roche is beautifully nuanced and layered from start to finish. Graphite, plum, blackberry jam, chalk and violets are some of the many notes that grace this utterly impeccable wine. Gorgeous, expressive aromatics are woven throughout, heightening the impression of total finesse. The 2012 is shaping up to be a beauty, but it naturally needs time. Drink: 2022 - 2037.
Good dark red-ruby. Wild black cherry and dark chocolate dominate the nose. Sweet but a bit youthfully imploded, with slightly tart acidity keeping the black cherry and licorice flavors under wraps today. Very tight-grained and rather tough going today, but with a chocolatey ripeness lurking. The broad, spreading finish features substantial tannins that reach the teeth. (The Bonnes-Mares showed porty, rather stunted aromas and some volatile acidity. Landanger was similarly surprised by its showing and sent off a sample to the lab. Turns out it was still in the middle of its malolactic fermentation!)
