    February 25, 2017 - Classic Burgundy; a touch of earth but very smooth and drinking very well. My own view is that these 2005s, at least the premier crus are mostly ready to drink notwithstanding some professional advice to keep them forever. Decanting for 1-2 hours works well in my experience to date.

    February 24, 2017 - 2 hour decant. Very representative of the vintage. Our last bottle, first we shared with the group. Softer and more balanced than most Pommards, lived up to our previous bottles. Love to find some more.

    June 25, 2016 - 25 June 2016 Tasting at Phredd's: 2nd wine of the tasting, leading off the flight of Pinots for the evening, courtesy of da'Knurd's cellar. I splash decanted through a filter then back into the bottle and let slow aerate for about 2 hours before tasting. Beautiful bright red cherries and hints of funk on the nose; classic Burgundy. The bright red cherries carry over on the palate with some sour cherry, tobacco, and toasty oak notes. Nice development in the glass and surprising tanninc structure; we agreed this still had some time left for development. Great length and surprising brightness on the finish as well. Unfortunately my only bottle. Overall: A- (92).

    Second Pinot of the night (IMO) and 3rd overall wine of the night, but I am a sucker for old world Pinot.

    June 18, 2014 - Very smooth for a Pommard. Lives up to the vintage. Bright garnet, complex nose with cherries and spice. Balanced in the mouth, with cherries (lots of bing cherries), nice acidity, med/long finish. Delightful with grilled salmon.

    December 27, 2013 - Lovely, floral nose with some red fruit and a hint of spice. Primarily cranberries on the palate, with some spice and a bit of vanilla. Good mouthfeel, wonderfully complex. Works just to sip, but would pair with a lot of different foods. Decanted about 2 hours. I think this could get even better, but it is drinking wonderfully now.

    2005 Pommard Tasting, Episode #552, 10/6/2008 (link) 91+ points

    (Domaine AF Gros Pommard Les Pezerolles) FIRST TASTING (after 3 hour decant): COLOR-medium; NOSE-a little tight; some chalk; dark chocolate covered licorice; there is a creaminess & elegance on this nose; Crème Brule action; TASTE-BIG tannins on this wine ripping through my palate; completely tight as a rock flavors; I get a little gaminess and a little mushroom aspect, but very tight; It's so young that it's almost undrinkable; tight firm tannins; lacking a lot of fruit right now; probably unpleasant experience for many because there is that much structure and tannins; I think we've opened this wine 15-20 years too soon; so tight & undrinkable; unapproachable; I'm going to decant this for 48 hours and re-taste on Wednesday 10/7; this wine is too young to be evaluated and scored; GV-?? SECOND TASTING on Episode #554 (after 48 hour decant): NOSE-considerable difference, a cola component, a little chalk dust & greenness; mocha, chocolate; green pepper; TASTE-it's opened up considerably; getting a lot of cherries & strawberries; still very tight tannins; a tea leaf component on the mid-palate; finishes very fresh w/ great length; this wine has a lot of potential; little hint of cinnamon stick on the back-end; a solid bottle of Burgundy; I like it quite a bit; this is a very nice wine 2 days later; GV-91+
