Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2019
“Maximum 12 bottles per person.
88-92 points from Jasper Morris MW:
“”Rich purple in colour, with ripe dark fruit, the bouquet a touch too close to a raisiny effect for comfort. A little bit sloppy on the palate, with some density, though firms up better at the back, and the length is good. If this freshens up by the time it gets to bottle then a higher rating will be in order. Tasted: October 2020″”
Thanks to rapid investment in the land and the winery by Patrick Landanger and his son Benoit there has been a contemporary surge in quality at the domaine. The iconic homestead is unmissable as you drive into the village of Volnay where the majoirty of the holdings are located. Beyond the Côte de Beaune there are enviable holdings in Chambolle Musigny too. Biodynamic pracitces are followed.The four storey cuverie is sunk into the hill behind the house accommodating gravity fed winemaking and extensive barrel and more recently amphorae cellars The wines exude elegance and finesse in an unashamedly modern style which has captured the attention of collectors and drinkers worldwide.
