A fresh, expressive and ripe nose of plum, violets, earth and a game nuance that is also reflected by the rich, full and impressively scaled medium weight plus flavors that evidence a trace of minerality on the firm, balanced and strikingly long finish. Lovely and this is a Pommard of refinement but still a Pommard. Drink 2018+. *Sweet Spot Outstanding*
The Pousse d’Or 2008 Pommard Jarollieres evinces some of the same smoky machine oil-like aromas as its sibling Clos d’Audignac, here allied to roasted game and cooked ripe blackberry. An abundance of tannin remains relatively fine-grained, and will in any case have been exacerbated by the wine’s having just been bottled. Stony, peaty, gamy, and bitter-edged black fruit notes dominate in a rather somber finish, though that, too, is surely a bit dampened-down by bottling and there is a fundamental underlying fruity and carnal richness here that bodes well for a decade or more of cellaring.
