Unquestionably one of the grandest white Burgundies, Chevalier-Montrachet sits just above Le Montrachet in the village of Puligny-Montrachet. Richly flavored, abundantly aromatic, infinitely long, and of course — very rare.
Domaine de la Pousse d’Or has for decades been the collector’s choice for expressive, memorable wines from Burgundy’s most hallowed terroirs, and is unquestionably one of the Burgundian elite. The history of Pousse d’Or in Volnay underscores its influence throughout the ages. In 1855, the winery was part of a larger domaine that included Romanée-Conti and Clos de Tart. In 1997, Patrick Landanger purchased the winery and its vineyards. In the mid-2000s, Landanger added an impressive collection of Côte de Nuits vineyards (from Domaine Moine-Hudelot) to his portfolio. The estate’s dedication to sustainable viticulture, following biodynamic principles, is serious. Vineyards are cared for without the use of pesticides or herbicides and are regularly plowed.
