Region Clos de la Roche

Diversity is to be expected as each Grand Cru has its own personality. To the eye, this wine is plain ruby, sometimes a bit darker. Veiled in strawberry and violet, the Clos de Tart offers both robustness and charm. Quite tannic when young, it softens with age while gaining in complexity. The Clos des Lambrays is a true aristocrat, fully rounded in youth and with added depth and gravity as the years go by. The Clos Saint-Denis impresses by its finely-tuned nuances – this wine is the Mozart of the Côte de Nuits. The Clos de la Roche is firmer, deeper and more serious, closely akin to Chambertin. Aromas of humus and truffle are often precursors to notes of small red or black fruits. A small part of the Bonnes-Mares appellation lies in this commune, but the greater part is in Chambolle-Musigny. 

Winery DOMAINE DE LA POUSSE D'OR

Domaine de la Pousse d’Or was established in the commune of Volnay in 1964 by a consortium including Louis Seysses (the father of Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac) and Gerard Potel, though it can trace its lineage back to the Dukes of Burgundy in 1100. Pousse d'Or has enjoyed a strong following in Australia, because two groups of Australians including Moss Wood founder Bill Pannel and the late David Clarke AO, of Poole’s Rock and Macquarie Bank were involved as shareholders during the 80s and 90s. The domaine consists of 18 hectares of mostly Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards in fabulous sites in Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Corton, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. Since acquiring the estate in 1997, Patrick Landanger has made significant investments in the vineyards and the winery.
