Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
(two of the four barrels were new; the production here was just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Landanger): Bright ruby. Sexy perfume of black raspberry, minerals, brown spices, licorice pastille and underbrush. Plush, sweet and smooth, offering superb concentration, energy and balance. Utterly seamless wine with terrific inner-mouth floral lift. The wine's strong fruit blows past the firm, late-arriving tannins on the juicy, gripping, very long finish.

Domaine de la Pousse d'Or

Since buying this magnificent Cote de Beaune Domaine from the Potels in the nineties, Patrick Landanger, an engineer by trade, retrained as a full time vigneron, over many years learning new skills and getting to know his land. In the last few vintages his wines have started to hit the very high standards he has always set for himself. Since purchasing the 3.5 ha Moine-Hudelot estate in Chambolle, Domaine de la Pousse d'Or has now increased to 17ha. The grapes are all destalked and fermented and aged in a gravity-fed winery. The winemaking is much gentler than when Patrick first bought the domaine and the result are wines of depth and intensity that are reflective of their terroir. Their 2011s are one of the best ranges of the vintage.
