2012 Corton Bressandes Domaine de la Pousse d'Or

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



An all but imperceptible application of wood sets off the grapey, earthy and slightly sauvage inflected aromas. There is good verve and that beguiling sense of underlying tension to the muscular yet refined medium weight plus flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the finish that displays just a hint of dryness. However given the apparent phenolic maturity of the supporting structure my inclination is to attribute the dryness to the recent bottling rather than under ripe tannins. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2022+



The 2012 Corton Bressandes Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet with a light marine influence coming through the black fruit, touches of seaweed and oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite meaty in the mouth with hints of dried blood and dark chocolate infusing the red fruit. There is good structure on the finish with a dash of cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. Very fine, though I actually preferred the Volnay Clos des 60 Ouvrées '12. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

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.
