Jansis Robinson

2015 "Ripe, perfumed and appealing. Lots of ripe fruits and real charm... Bravo!"(17+)

VINOUS Neil Martin

2017 "The Pommard Les Rugiens Bas 1er Cru has a wonderful bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, wilted rose petal and undergrowth/mulch scents that gains delineation with time. The medium-bodied palate is quite fresh and poised, with fine tannin and a very refined, lightly spiced finish that fans out wonderfully. This comes highly recommended. (93)

BURGHOUND Allen Meadows

2016 "A discreet application of wood sets off an appealingly spicy nose of black cherry, rasberry, like the Chaponnières, a touch of the sauvage..." (93)

Pommard 1er Cru
Les Chaponnières

 

Jansis Robinson Julia Harding

2017 "Bottled. Mid to light crimson. Smells a little riper and sweeter than the Pommard Perrières. Lightly peppery, mouth-watering and elegant. Super-fine tannins." (16,5)

VINOUS Neil Martin

2017 "The Pommard Les Chaponnières 1er Cru has a fragrant and floral bouquet, peony and rose petal aromas infusing the red cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and quite spicy in the mouth, with supple tannin and a finely structured finish. There is a sense of confidence about this Pommard that feels reassuring. Excellent." (92)

BURGHOUND Allen Meadows

2016 "The rich, muscular and solididly well-concentrated big-bodied flavors culminate in a mouth coating, moderately rustic and impressively persistent finish..." (92)

Pommard 1er Cru
Clos Blanc

 

Jansis Robinson

2016 "Concentreted and without rought edges. Pretty smart stuff." (16,5)

VINOUS Neil Martin

2017 "The Pommard Clos-Blanc 1er Cru has a masculine, quite earthy bouquet that displays touches of damp undergrowth – quintessential Pommard in many ways. The well-balanced palate offers dark berry fruit infused with notes of pain d’épices and cracked black pepper, and a finely structured finish. This should give 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure." (92)

Wine Advocate Neil Martin

2015"The Pommard Clos-Blanc 1er Cru is agreat and pleasant surprise. It displays more red fruit on the nose compared to tis peers, pushing crushed strawberry and raspberry scents to the fore and revealing hints of black truffle and graphite with continued aeration... Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting " (93)

BURGHOUND Allen Meadows

2016 "I very much like the seductive texture of the concentrated flavors..." (91)

2015 "This the best example that I have seen since the Launay 2002, whitch was made from the same vines but not by Xavier" (92)

Pommard
Les Perrières

 

Jansis Robinson Julia Harding

2017 "Bottled. Mid crimson. Inviting, gently stony red fruit. Juicy, supple and rather delicate for a Pommard, the tannins fine and dry, paper fine." (16)
2015 "Mid ruby. firm nose. An then very solid and chewy on the end..." (16+)

VINOUS Neil Martin

2017 "Les Perrières offers lovely red cherry, cranberry and pomegranate scents on the nose, all well defined and quite intense for a village cru. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit. A little earthiness surfaces towards the finish, which feels long and poised. This is a fine Pommard from Xavier Horiot. " (90)

BURGHOUND Allen Meadows

2016 "An attractively fresh and ripe nose offers up of violet, plum and earth. The dense, serious and sappy medium bodied flavors possess an abundance of old vine extract... This is a quality Pommard Villages." (90)
