Yowza. This is crazy. Stunning mid season cherry. Just phenomenal pure, deep and clear cherry. Sick clarity here. 9.6 nose. Just insane. Stones, soil, licorice as well. Floral. So focused. Amazing fruit clarity here. Top notch. Superb concentration and power. Sappy and so pure. Electric freshness and just ridiculous energy. This is so balanced, deep and well made. Big noble tannins that are perfectly ripe and just gorgeous. Juicy clean fruit and so stoney and mineral. Utterly classic and superb Pommard. 103 year old vines.

From 102 year old vines in the center of Pommard. This is, next to the Rugiens, the top wine of the estate. Sick nose. What a nose. So deep. So pure. Smoke, ripe cherry, huge minerals. Stoney. It needs 15 minutes I think. Wow. This is a beast. Massive fruit and structure. This is even more imposing than Rugiens. Massive power and concentration and fruit sap. This is incredible BUT I’ll be back to upgrade as this needs mega air.

UPDATE on day 2 - brooding nose. Stoney, deep dark cherries, blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, savory and meaty, palate is massive and sweet with stunning juiciness and real persistence and tannins cut like a swath. Awesome, complex and deep. Needs 5 years.
