The 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a bold and intense bouquet with small black cherries, blackcurrant pastilles, orange sorbet and a touch of oyster shell. It is not that far from the Bonnes-Mares in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a tang of marmalade on the entry. This has superb structure and density, stylistically reminiscent of say, Laurent Ponsot’s Clos de la Roche, although without quite the scintillating precision on the finish. Still, this is a fabulous expression of the Grand Cru and there is wonderful salinity throughout. ||Domaine de la Pousse d’Or is an estate that is really conjuring up some quite marvelous wines these days. I find them very different from that other Volnaysian resident, Marquis d’Angerville. Pousse d’Or tend to be more opulent with sweeter fruit, weightier and you might argue more modern in style, though not in a negative sense. For those that like reserve, structure and transparency I would opt for the Marquis, but if you like more fruit in your glass, then head over to La Pousse d’Or. Like last year, it was Patrick Landanger who greeted me at the gates and escorted me through the wines, this time down in the cellar rather than the cuverie. |“The wines are different to 2012,” he explained. “Perhaps they are more serious. The 2012 are perhaps easier to drink. It [2012] is not a grand millésime, but I think they merit more aging than 2013. We began the harvest around 2 or 3 October. Some vineyards were more affected by the flowering and hail than others. In Volnay Caillerets we lost half the crop. The wines are aged in one-third new oak, plus one-third 1-year and one-third 2-year old.” |This was an impressive selection of 2013s that already display the domaine’s trademark roundness, purity and sensuality. In particular their Chambolle-Musignys are beautifully crafted and perhaps overshadow their Volnays that would have faced a more challenging growing season. My pick would be their Les Amoureuses, one of the finest as was born out by the blind tasting of 2011s earlier this year and I felt this had more precision than the Bonnes-Mares, just as I found the following day when I visited Patrice Rion. | eRobertParker.com.December, 2014

The domaine de la Pousse d’Or, near Beaune, has been owned since 1997 by Patrick Landanger, who has invested considerably in the Burgundian estate. The 18 hectare vineyard covers mainly premier and grand cru sites in Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. Domaine de La Pousse d’Or wines are some of the top examples from the region.
