Winemaker Notes

This wine offers aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, and dusty chocolate. On the palate, it is earthy, textured and refined, with medium tannins and ripe flavors of black and red fruits.

Pair with flank steak with pepper, oeufs en meurette or aged French cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 92
Once again there is a whisper of VA but it's not enough to materially detract from the more deeply pitched aromas of plum liqueur, earth and gentle wood scents. There is more size, weight, power and concentration if notably less finesse to the medium-bodied flavors that also exude a subtle minerality on the solidly constituted and lingering finish. This is definitely a muscular Pommard but it's not rustic.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Jarollières has an attractive bouquet with slightly earthy black fruit laced with black tea and bay leaf aromas. I appreciate the way this unfurls in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite fresh and harmonious, focused with a fresh, oyster shell-tinged finish. Yes, I would like a little more personality perhaps, but this is still a well-crafted Pommard that should give 15 years of drinking pleasure.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

COMMENTARY: One of the issues with Pommard is that historically, there has been a lot of mediocrity in the marketplace. The La Pousse d'Or 1er Cru Les Jarollières has always been one of the exceptions. The 2016 vintage is top of the line. TASTING NOTES: This wine is generous, supple, and delivers from start to finish. Its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit stay generous and long on the palate. Pair its ripe red and blue fruits with roast pork of tenderloin. (Tasted: March 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Domaine de la Pousse d'Or, France
Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Patrick Landanger-Owner Winery Image

Domaine de la Pousse d’Or has for decades been the collector’s choice for expressive and memorable wines from Burgundy’s most hallowed terroirs. This historic estate is one of the Burgundian elite, in a similar realm of such exclusive wineries like Romanée-Conti and Comte de Vogüé, with its strict selection and seamless winemaking. The history of Pousse d’Or in Volnay underscores its influence throughout the ages. In 1855, the winery was part of a larger domaine that included such names as Romanée-Conti and Clos de Tart. Originally called La Bousse d’Or (Bousse, in old French, means earth; thus, “golden earth”), the Domaine changed owners a number of times until legend Gérard Potel took the reins. It was Potel that put the estate’s wines on the map, with the elegant, refined style that Pousse d’Or is still known for today. In 1997, Patrick Landanger purchased the winery and its vineyards. In the mid-2000s, Landanger added an impressive collection of Côte de Nuits vineyards (from Domaine Moine-Hudelot) to his portfolio. Pousse d’Or has three premier cru monopoles, or exclusively estate-owned vineyards, in Volnay: ‘Clos de la Bousse d’Or,’ ‘Clos des Soixante (60)-Ouvrées’ and ‘Clos d’Audignac.’ Pousse’s attention to detail and dedication to organic viticulture (the estate is not certified but has followed organic principles for years) is serious. Vineyards are cared for without the use of pesticides or herbicides and are regularly plowed. Grapes are harvested and sorted by hand, and bunches are destemmed and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled tanks. Wines are aged from 15 to 18 months in French oak barrels, with between 30 to 50 percent new wood, depending on the cru. In recent vintages, Landanger has been experimenting with terracotta amphorae for aging some of his premier cru wines. All wines are bottled by gravity and are unfined and unfiltered.

Pommard Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Representing 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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
