Once again there is a whisper of VA but it’s not enough to materially detract from the more deeply pitched aromas of plum liqueur, earth and gentle wood scents. There is more size, weight, power and concentration if notably less finesse to the medium-bodied flavors that also exude a subtle minerality on the solidly constituted and lingering finish. This is definitely a muscular Pommard but it’s not rustic. 2028+
The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Jarollières has an attractive bouquet with slightly earthy black fruit laced with black tea and bay leaf aromas. I appreciate the way this unfurls in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite fresh and harmonious, focused with a fresh, oyster shell-tinged finish. Yes, I would like a little more personality perhaps, but this is still a well-crafted Pommard that should give 15 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black fruits, flowers and licorice complicated by a menthol note. Densely packed and concentrated, conveying a medicinal aspect to its flavors of black fruits, menthol and licorice. But not at all a rustic style. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good length.
