91-92James Suckling

Fine, black-cherry nose with delicate, earthy notes. Quite firm structure, bright acidity and a long, cool and mineral finish.

Otherwise there is good density and punch to the sappy medium-bodied flavors that exhibit fine length on the rustic but not particularly austere finale.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Dark-fruited and subtle on the nose and a slightly bloody note (the iron?). Incredibly smooth texture but with a compactness and depth that gives it shape around the fruit. Tight and spicy on the finish. Spicy, dark-fruited but juicy finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard

Pommard is a relatively large appellation of 1,655 vineyard acres just a few miles south of Beaune. Though it has no Grands Crus, Pommard’s 28 Premiers Crus are generally well regarded. The appellation produces only red wine, and wine writers often note that despite Pommard’s proximity to both Beaune and Volnay, its wines are very different from the Pinot Noirs produced in neighboring appellations. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote that “The top Pommards are full-bodied, chunky, muscular, fleshy wines that impress one more for their power and expansive, mouth filling texture than for pure finesse.” The most famous Premiers Crus are Les Epenots and Les Rugiens.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
