Drank at the Goldsteins after finishing off a 1996 Chambolle village wine--that was shockingly well-preserved. I tasted this wine from bottle and found it very tight at first, so we decanted and let it sit for 30 mins, after which it opened beautifully. Ruby red color not showing much age, if any. Nose of red cherries & spice. Lots of red fruit--cherries and strawberries, along with spicy notes and some earth. Good structure, nice complexity. The wine was surprisingly youthful &, even though it was quite enjoyable, I fear I opened it a few years too soon, and this is my last bottle!
This has really opened up in the past year or two and is just great. The structure is still there but this wonderful fruit has come out. This is down right fruit foward for a Pommard. Nice nose too. Sure am glad I waited on this one.
More red fruit than I think of as typical for Pommard, all raspberry, cherry, and wild strawberry. There some lead pencil (which I think of as more Bdx than Burg) and spice on the nose. Nice wine, ready to go
