Age-worthy Pommard from just $69.95 a bottle
Pommard was once known for its stern, rustic, earthy wines that begged for decades of ageing. The French are very partial to Pommard but it has not been quite as popular in the English-speaking nations.
But just like Corton the quality and style of wines being made is changing. Considered winemaking is resulting in wines of more charm but still with the underlying structure to ensure their ageability.
One of our discoveries last year was Domaine Moissenet-Bonnard. They have some terrific Auxey-Duresses reds which will surprise and delight with their intensity and complexity.
In addition they have a clutch of Pommards from some serious vineyards including the Premier Crus Les Epenots, Les Pezerolles and Les Charmots plus the lieu-dits Les Cras and Les Petits Noizons.
The wines are a wonderful combination of old and new. Unlike many Pommards of yesteryear these wines are not rustic and tannic. There is an aromatic elegance combined with power and depth. We have a range of 2010's and 2011's available. The 2010's are tighter and require more time in the cellar and the 2011's are more seductive.
The great news is that the Pommards start at just $69.95 a bottle which in today's market is excellent buying.
