100% whole bunch. Not yet racked but about to be and will be bottled in March/April, mostly 2- to 3-year old barrels.
Mid crimson. Lovely open aroma of dark-red fresh fruits. So scented and open for the appellation. Firm and attractively dry-textured on the palate. More tongue-tied on the palate than the nose predicted. Fine Pommard. Shows the 100% whole-bunch on the finish but in a good, refreshing way. (JH)
'From Rugiens, Combotte, Trois Follots and Croix Blanche. Rich dense purple, much the same deep cherry nose as the others, quite plummy, then the muscular tannins behind, excellent weight of fresh red fruit, with some darker notes too, a Pommard that should age well.' - 88-91 points.
