Domaine de la Pousse d'Or in Vinous

With the 2016 vintage in barrel and the 2015 vintage in bottle, Vinous has released reviews for Domaine de la Pousse d'Or. Steven Tanzer praises the 2016 vintage with banded scores ranging up to 95 points. "The wines, says Landanger, feature very clean fruit, and he believes that although they will last a long time, they will also taste good early."

Arguably the finest and most prestigious Burgundy house in Volnay, Domaine de la Pousse d’Or has now been in existence since the 1100s. Most recently, Gérard Potel acquired the Domaine through a marriage to the then-owner’s niece in 1964. He unified what were two properties in Volnay into one 17-hectare nucleus, where Pousse d’Or is headquartered today. With his untimely death in 1997 the Domaine passed into the hands of the current winemaker, Patrick Landanger. Pousse d’Or has three 1er cru monopoles in Volnay: Clos de la Bousse d’Or, Clos d’Audignac, and Clos des Soixante Ouvrées. They also make several different villages, 1er cru and grand cru wines from throughout the Côte d’Or.
