Burgundy, France

Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

The evening theme is Pinot Noir from unexpected areas.
A red Chablis, sourced from three parcels between Venoy and Chablis; one location is the Ferme de Couverte which is the hill above Vaudésir. 🦄 🍷

Nose has syrupy kirsch, very ripe cherry, very ripe black currant and moist limestone. Incredibly fruity, reminiscent of many Oregon wines, on the edge of being too much fruit. 🍒💣(Can't believe I'm writing that!)

Palate has super sweet ripe cherry, brambly-stemmy notes are well integrated, acidity is sharp but soft edges.

I'm completely caught off guard by this bottle. Yet, I should have known that the Chardonnay masters in Chablis would have just done an amazing job with Pinot Noir grown in the same conditions. Damn it, I barely bought any of this and that was my mistake, plus 2016! What was I thinking? Won't under commit to this wine in the future, perfect sipper and very accessible.

Decanted ~3hrs.

Great white burg at this price point. Great acidity from the slightest but it felt like the vintage gave it a lot of fruit as well. — 9 days ago

Cherry, raspberry, iron, earth, rose petals a bit of barnyard at first. Is that orange peel too lingering in there. Easy going, no secondary, no tertiary, plain simple and efficient nose. The palate is acid driven with raspberry and cherry all along and some tannins coming in the rear to give a nice mouth feel and an impression of chewing it. The finish is delicate with fruits and rose. Not grand, not overwhelming, not showing off but a delicate, well crafted burgundy which plays above its league. — 8 hours ago

Great nose. So precise and on point. Lemon, wet forest floor, minerals, candied but barely. Lovely classic 14 nose. Dynamic 2014 with lovely energy, purity and sap. So very pure and clean. Excellent depth and just so harmonious. Reminds me of the Mosel for some reason. Very mineral finish and lovely persistence. — 9 days ago

Fantastically deep nose of spice, sap, framing oak, dark cherry fruit and loads of mineral. Superbly fruited and well defined nose. Palate is sweet and super mineral with lovely freshness and complexity along with terrific driving energy. Terrific sap and purity. Very good. Will age 15 years. — 12 days ago

Guys night out at The Tasting Room.
.
A very sexy and supple Bourgogne rouge with plenty of fruit, yes, but also loads of earth/minerals/menthol/cherry tobacco.
