Decanter Magazine

Deep red. Perfumed and lifted nose, cherries and violets, very stylish. Rich, suave, and full-bodied, compact and concentrated, and has hefty but ripe tannins. It's quite spicy but perhaps lacks a little vigour on the finish. Good length, nonetheless.



Here too there is enough wood to notice surrounding the more elegant and slightly more complex nose that is comprised by dark currant, earth and a hint of forest floor. The medium-bodied flavors are not quite as concentrated as those of the Perrières but they are notably finer in large part thanks to the somewhat finer grain of the supporting tannins on the suave but focused and ever-so-slightly austere finish. This balanced but notably firm effort will clearly require at least a decade of cellaring to realize its full potential.


Wine Advocate - Neal Martin

The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru Les Charponnières, a 0.6-hectare holding, has more red fruit on the nose compared to the Pommard Les Perrières, wild strawberry and raspberry preserve, quite expressive with subtle sous-bois scents. The palate is medium-bodied with brisk red berry fruit on the entry. Saline in the mouth, masculine perhaps but with ample red fruit on the citric finish, this is a well-crafted Pommard that should give much pleasure over the next decade.
