Pommard 1er Cru Le Pezerolles Domaine A.F. Gros 2011
Pommard 1er Cru Le Pézerolles, Domaine A.F. Gros, Pommard, Cotes de Beaune, France 2011
100% Pinot Noir with around 18 months in oak.
"Dry, quite firm – very Pommard, then! It is gratifying when appellations are true to type. For me, it’s not as enticing as the Vosne-Romanées, but that's personal bias." Richard Hemming MW 17/20 jancisrobinson.com
"Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Les Pezerolles ‘11 has a delineated, conservative but focused bouquet with earthy strawberry and raspberry fruit, hints of orange blossom lending a little complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity. This is sharp and perhaps a little angular in the mouth, but there is still good length with a dash of black pepper lingering on the aftertaste."
