Les Pézerolles", at the northern end of the appellation, borrows from Beaune its delicate bouquet and structure. It is the most refined Pommard as it typically makes feminine wines akin to Volnay, located paradoxically on the other side of the village. Our parcel sits in the heart of the cru, the best part of which was formerly part of "Le Clos de Pézerolles".
It can be difficult to identify this Pommard in blind tastings because it is atypical. Its floral, perfumed and yet subtle aromas mix with small red and black fruits which are framed by a rather light, svelte and feminine structure accompanied by a simultaneously generous yet tense texture.
"The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru les Pezerolles has quite a dense, rich bouquet with cassis-tinged red berry fruit, actually more like a Volnay in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite dense in the mouth again, saline and lightly spiced towards the finish that has good fleshiness and length. This is very fine. Drink 2019 - 2035."
91 - 93 Points."(Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate # 228, December 2016)
