Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Clos Tavannes Santenay 1er Cru La Pousse d’Or 2019
“Maximum 12 bottles per person.
91-93 points from Jasper Morris MW:
“”Luxuriant deep red with some high class albeit ripe fruit, dark raspberry, a suggestion of blackberry too. Full and fleshy, but not a monster. More black fruit with an undertow of red, acceptable acidity which is helped by the biodynamics, in Benoît Landanger’s opinion. Very long finish. 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.
