From vines planted in 1902. Yowza. One of my new favorite bottlings. Incredible spice and minerality. Deep and penetrating aromas. Feral and animal as well but such a clean sauvage. A stoney sauvage. Some deep cherry fruit but this cuvee always needs a few hours to get going. Wow. Deep, dark black cherry fruit and awesome texture and freshness. Black cherry fruit that is teeming with energy and slathered with super stoney minerals. Exquisite balance and so so mineral. Amazing stoniness which is what Pommard is about. Really dense but also transparent and elegant. Huge ripe and chewy tannins that exude stoniness and black cherry fruit with a red cherry top note. Explosive and long finish. This is an ager and priced right below 1er Cru Rugiens. As serious as a Pommard being made today. Beautiful inner mouth aromas and awesome power, depth and concentration while retaining incredible balance. Big, substantial stoney tannins on the finish pump out black cherry fruit. Finish is minutes long. As this airs it gets sweet and more mouthfilling. Will def be back in a few hours! Sick wine.
