Pommard 2012

Pommard 2012

Pommard is for many the most familiar Burgundy appellation. The village itself lies approximately 2 miles south of Beaune, and the total appellation is fairly extensive, covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic. This wine requires a number of years to reveal itself.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Pommard 2012 is ruby red in colour and on the nose cassis aromas acompany subtle smoky notes. Cassis flavours return on tasting accompanied by a touch of mocha. A rounded wine with light freshness on the finish.
Ratings
90 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com "A discreet but not invisible application of wood frames the ripe dark berry fruit and damp earth aromas. There is solid density to the ripe and muscular flavors where the supporting tannins are phenolically mature, all wrapped in a robust, rustic and lingering finish. This will require a few years of cellar time to be approachable."
Food Pairing Notes
Duck confit - beef "Bourguignon" - mature cheeses
Other Notes
3-5 years cellaring potential
