Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JM 95
Jasper Morris
Fine pale lemon, this has a racy yet full bouquet, generous but chiselled fruit, with some lemon citrus notes dancing around the central core of deep white fruit. Not quite so concentrated towards the back but still a lovely, classy wine with a fine long finish.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
BH 93
An elegant nose is comprised by sublimely layered aromas of acacia, lilac pear, spice and plenty of mineral reduction. The racy, intense and beautifully delineated medium weight flavors brim with dry extract and minerality before culminating in a youthfully austere, firm and well-balanced finale. This is both classy and stylish and one to look for.
D 92
This wine ‘should be a grand cru’ says winemaker Benoit Landanger. It has a wonderfully aromatic nose, elegant and precise with white floral tones underpinned by mineral lemon zest - it gets even better just half an hour later - a touch more tropical and evocative. It has a soft, honeyed toast aspect to the nose also giving interest. The palate is fresh and mouthwatering, layered with citrus fruits, peach, bruised apple and marzipan-almond edges. There are touches of stone and flint notes giving texture as well as touches of oak spice noticeable on the finish. Give it time to soften and integrate - this is a wine that will go on and on. From a 0.17ha walled plot planted in 1976 on stony limestone terroir. The wine is aged on the lees for 16-18 months, of which 12 months are spent in oak barrels. Organic and biodynamic farming.

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.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
