Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Pommard Premier Cru Les Jarollieres 2013
Bright, full red. Complex, expressive aromas of black cherry, mocha, game, underbrush, coffee and chicory. Sweet, rich and smooth, showing more verve to its red fruit and game flavors than the nose suggests. Spreads out impressively on the back end, coating the palate with serious, horizontal tannins.
Domaine de la Pousse d’Or is a 40-acre estate in Volnay that traces its history to the 15th century. In old French the estate’s name meant “golden earth,” a testament to the reputation of its terroir. It was run for many years by the legendary Gerard Potel, whose wines were considered some of the best of Burgundy.
