515 Pommard

Pommard beliggende rett syd for Beaune i Burgund lager gjerne en fyldigere og mer kjøttfull stil. Vinmarkene har en rekke soleksponeringer, mot nord, mot sør og alle aspekter i mellom disse to mot øst, samt delvis mot vest lengst inne i dalen som strekker seg vestover fra landsbyen Pommard. Første klassifisering i 1860, men i 1936 først ble AOC Pommard etablert. Gjennomsnittstemperaturen i pommard gjennom et år er rundt 10,5 grader. 90.000 flasker Pommard 1er Cru lages per år.

Rugiens er i dag 1er Cru men man prøver å få godkjent vinmarken(e) som Grand Cru. Man forsøker det samme på nordsiden av Pommard med deler av Epenotsvinmarkene. En av grunnene til at det ikke er Grand Cru allerede i Pommard, var at negociantene i området ikke ønsket dette i 1936 av frykt for høye priser på druene/vinene de skulle kjøpe. Selv om vinene de senere årene har blitt lettere, mer florale og brilliante i utrykket, her som i resten av Burgund, har man fortsatt en tydelig struktur og tydelige tanniner.

Anise, pepper, dark fruits, some red fruits comes and goes, touch of mint and eucalyptus, some vanilla, some spices, some blackberries. Even some floral notes shows up every now and then. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, rich, fruity, sweet dark fruits, layered, detailed, nuanced, but nothing is up front. Everything is hidden, compact and tight, yet it reveals layers upon layers. Long. Very long indeed. Save it for twenty years, will last fifty years more, or longer. 96

1996 Château Cos d'Estournel
Ruby. Weird nose of rose hips, herbs and wood. Fresh acidity, lean fruit. With more air, (double decanted) and after almost two hours some darker fruits appears, the nose gets fruitier, the palate somewhat rounder.
