A distinctly cool nose presents a pretty combination of red cherry, black raspberry and lavender scents that are liberally laced with earth hints. There is excellent intensity and minerality to the focused, powerful and tautly muscular flavors that possess a sleek mouth feel, all wrapped in an austere and ever-so-mildly dry finish though the dryness may eventually age out.
Bernard Dugat lost around 30% of his 2014 Pommard la Levrière Vieilles Vignes due to hail damage, and it necessitated a lot of sorting. Still, it was worthwhile because it has quite an intense, pure bouquet of blackberries and wild strawberry despite just a little reduction. The palate is bolstered by firm, grainy tannin on the entry. There is good weight in the mouth, a little oaky on the finish but there is a keen line of acidity. Give this 3-4 years in bottle. (NM)
(Dugat made 7 barrels in 2014, vs. a normal 10 to 12, owing to hail losses): Medium red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, tobacco and red licorice. Sweet and ripe in the middle, with red berry and brown spice flavors lifted by a licorice note. Turns tighter on the back end but there's nothing hard or rustic about the substantial tongue-coating tannins. A very ripe Pommard villages.(ST)
