January 17, 2014-Domaine de la Pousse d'Or was a fitting final stop in Burgundy. An absolutely stunning facility with several quirks (including a self topping barrel mechanism), you immediately noted that this place is owned by an inventor. This historic property was purchased in 1999 by Patrick Landager, the wines have purportedly, never been better. They utilize gravity flow, and organic farming. They hold 3 monopoles all in Volnay: Bousse d'Or, Clos d'Auginiac and 60 Ouvrées., along with 1er & Grand Crus throughout Pommard, Corton and Chambolle Musigny. We tasted essentially, the entire range of 2012’s and they were just stunning.  These are wines crafted for long term ageing.
