Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Corton-Le Clos du Roi Grand Cru

Domaine de la Pousse d‘Or is one of the oldest and most respected producers in all of Burgundy. Although the house has changed hands multiple times during the past millennium, they have been producing legendary wines since the famous Dukes of Burgundy reigned back in 1100. In the Volnay appellation, the Domaine, once connected to the likes of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Clos de Tart, has continually, and impressively, maintained exclusive ownership of the famed, “Clos de La Bousse d’Or,” Premier Cru vineyard site for centuries. One of the most storied and historic sites in all of Burgundy, it has been protected by a picturesque stonewall since the time in which it was tended by the monks. The 2021s play perfectly into what Pousse d’Or does best: Combining rich, succulent fruit with complex savor and a structure that virtually guarantees many, many years of cellar potential. And despite their exceptional pedigree and history, these wines remain some of the best values in top tier Burgundy.

“Le Clos du Roi” is a historic, walled vineyard that sits just above Corton-Bressandes. Though it shares many attributes with its neighboring vineyard, the “royal” clos produces wines that are a bit deeper, with more black and violet colors and aromas. Of course, this is Grand Cru so it needs a good deal of time to really show the full spectrum of wild berries, exotic spices, dried flowers, and earthy minerals. I would leave it alone for 10-15 years, but if you open on the earlier side be sure to give it a long decant.
