La Pousse D'or

La Pousse d'Or

Clos du Roi Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Nose has damp, mossy forest floor, black cherry pie you accidentally stepped on while hiking in aforementioned forest, molasses, fire drowned out by rain, dried blackberry, dried leather and wet cedar.

Palate has dried blackberry, under-ripe black cherry, fig paste, saturated oak barrel, oak spiced red cherry, notable tannins, still overly restrained.

Decanted 4H, probably wanted 8H+, too youthful. This bottle will likely need about a decade to concentrate.

Paired to a favorite dish in our house, Curry Braised Eggs (from our hens), served over brown rice with toasted Naan bread. Absolutely delicious! 😋 Nothing better than mildly spiced, tomato-based dishes with exquisite Burgundy.

(Honestly this Corton deserves a braised beef dish, expect it would be spectacular with short ribs next time around...note to future self.)

The fourth of several 2014 La Pousse d'Or bottles we acquired late in 2019. This, as expected, needs another 15-20+ years (2036+) to show its truer self.

La Bolida Costières-de-Nîmes 2011

Feel like this hasn’t moved and inch since LBT, perhaps the fruit beginning to dry out some more. Roasted-ripe black fruit, sanguine, beef jerky, fur, tar, menthol, hot stones, fennel seed and dried herb, ash. The mid-palate fruit density offers up CNDP suggestions but it’s brute tannin and power remind of Bandol. A unique expression as always. Lamb loin, charred eggplants and jimmy nards, harissa honey and herbed yogurt was a success. — 9 hours ago

L d'Or Granite Muscadet de Sèvre & Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2017

This seems simple at first sniff. Mineral nose. Then lemon, lime and kiwi berry on the palate. But the finish is so complex, long and satisfying. Lees aging here is brilliant. Another 5 years would be great. — a month ago
