Pommard suffers from an identity crisis in Australia. All too many of us remember the tough, meaty wines of yesteryear. The wines aged magnificently but enormous patience was required.
Things have changed and today the monsters of the past have made way for new modern wines that express the terroir and do not demand years in the cellar. The French are very fond of Pommard and I think many of our clients will be too, if they just give it a chance.
This weekend's on line only special focuses on Pommard. We offer a 15% discount on wine in stock. The majority of wines, including Premier Crus are priced between $60 and $70.
Domaine Fernand and Laurent Pillot Pommard 1er Cru Les Charmots 2010
Normal Price $79.00
Weekend On Line Price $67.15
Pillot has a 0.31 ha holding split between two parcels. They were planted in 1952 and 1989. It is ideally situated at mid-slope facing east and south. Charmots, as the name suggests, is a more approachable style of Pommard.
My favourite of the Pillot reds in 2010, this is a Pommard with some of the lightness of touch of a Volnay and none of the former's growling tannins. Sweet, fine and well balanced with beguiling palate length. 2014-20. 92 Points. Tim Atkin MW
