Tasting Notes

"The apparent freshness from stems is not enough to mitigate the soupy, apricot-jam flavours. Ungainly, chalky tannins on the finish. Very disappointing." Alex Hunt MW

DOM. DE COURCEL
Although it has been flying a bit under the radar, Domaine de Courcel has a track record every bit as impressive as the other stars of Pommard (e.g. Comte Armand and Michel Gaunoux). In fact, Courcel has shown a remarkable consistency in turning out top scoring Pommards even in tricky vintages. The reason is that regisseur Yves Confuron is a man who does not believe in shortcuts: Hard work in the vineyards is always necessary to bring in pure and ripe fruit. Pommard wines are usually big and brawny, but Courcel’s 1er Cru bottlings add an extra layer of earthy, gamey fruit over a sinewy tannic structure that will reward the patient. No wonder Courcel is a regular favorite among Pinot fanatics and Burghound subscribers. (www.burghound.com)
