Average critic rating : 91.0 points



Landanger's 2006 Corton Clos Du Roi exhibits the sort of pungent, nippy combination of spice and pepper that this year characterized a couple of his Volnays. The tartness of blackberry is a welcomes source of refreshment as well as invigoration, the latter reinforced by salty and peppery notes. Roasted meatiness, tobacco and herb concentrate, and the bitterness of fruit pits all add depth as well as a darker cast, and tannin is never far from the surface, but this preserves a dynamic interplay of elements in its long tactilely pungent finish that transcends the other wines in its collection. I would wait several years to revisit it and anticipate 10-12 of fascination.||Patrick Landanger reports having fermented longer and worked harder to extract flavor from his 2006 crop, and while the results are undeniably concentrated, on the occasion of my tasting, several suffered a bit from opacity and tannic severity.

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.
