Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Pommard Les Jarollieres Premier Cru 2012
Aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, dusty chocolate. Earthy, textured, yet refined; medium tannins, ripe flavors of black and red fruits.
Pair with flank steak with pepper, oeufs en meurette (poached eggs in red Burgundy), and aged French cheese.

There is a subtle touch of wood framing the ultra-fresh nose of just turned earth, game and dark currant aromas that display a background hint of underbrush. There is an excellent sense of verve to the less obviously mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess really lovely balance and strikingly good length. This is lovely and worth considering.

Since 1997, its new owner Patrick Landanger has invested considerable resources both in the vineyards themselves and in the arrangements for vinification and elevage.
In pursuit of ever-higher quality, he is animated by profound respect for his terroirs and this guides his ambition to share his passion for the great wines of Burgundy with the world at large.
Some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Côte de Beaune—along with Volnay—that is recognized for its impressive Pinot noir. While it can’t boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.
Les Pézerolles, Les Épenots, Clos des Épeneaux, Les Chanlins, Les Jarolières, Les Fremiers and particularly Les Rugiens are among the most outstanding Premiers Crus.
The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand some time in the bottle to reach their peak.
