Review DOMAINE DE COURCEL POMMARD 'LES FREMIERS' 1ER CRU 2008
DOMAINE DE COURCEL POMMARD 'LES FREMIERS' 1ER CRU 2008
91-92+ Points - David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate: "The Courcel 2008 Pommard Fremiers delivers marvelous energy, as well as purity of tart, fresh, ripe black fruits, with nutmeg, cooked ginger, black tea, white pepper, cyanic bitterness of fruit pit, iris, and elder flower all lending complexity. Positively silken in texture though palpably dense, this finishes with vibratory intensity of vividly fresh elderberry, blackberry and cherry; pungent spices; liquid floral perfume; iron filings and crushed stone. Here is an instance of synergy between relatively high acidity and abundant yet fine tannin such as one seldom witnesses in this vintage. Expect at least 15 years of fascination from this formidable yet elegant Pinot that beautifully marries virtues of both Volnay and Pommard, as befits its location."
Variety: Pinot Noir
