Domaine de la Pousse d'Or in Burghound

Allen Meadows reviews the 2016 vintage of Domaine de la Pousse d'Or for Burghound. With scores as high as 94 points, he praises the direction the winery is going and notes that Patrick Landanger's son Benoît has taken over the operation of the estate starting this year.

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.
