"Patrick Landanger produces great wines of Burgundy, elegant and refined, whom wine critics rank amongst the best."
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
A Passionate Lineage
Domaine de la Pousse d'Or was purchased in 1997 by Patrick Landanger with a view of modernising it and giving it back the deserved shine. The domaine, surrounding the city of Volnay, had already established a fabulous history and blossoming reputation for more than a century. Significant financial and human resources have been put in place to improve the quality. New plots have been added to the domain. All of that resulting in immediate recognition of hard work producing high quality Burgundy wines.
