A famous old domaine in Volnay that has recently been
revitalized by Patrick Landanger, since his debut 1999 vintage.
Typically one-third new oak is used on these wines. UK agent is The
Wine Treasury – their prices are given in brackets for each wine.
They are nice wines in a slightly modern mould, but as with many
decent red Burgundies, they aren’t cheap.
Domaine de la Pousse d’Or Volnay 1er Cru Audignac 1999
Striking rich, ripe nose with sweet spicy cherryish fruit and some
wood evident. Good concentration and balance on the palate with a
distinct spicy edge. Showing a little bit too much wood at the moment,
but elegant. Very good/excellent (£31.54)
Domaine de la Pousse d’Or Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets 1999
Deep coloured with a rich, ripe, spicy nose. Elegant expressive
cherry and berry fruit on the palate with an earthy, spicy edge. Good
concentration here. Very good/excellent (£32.93)
Domaine de la Pousse d’Or Pommard 1er Cru Jarollières
Developing some spicy perfume on the nose. The palate shows a good

good structure. Firm and currently a little woody, but real potential.
Very good/excellent (£35.72)
