2008 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Pommard 1er Cru "Jarollières"

SKU #1218854 89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A fresh, expressive and ripe nose of plum, violets, earth and a game nuance that is also reflected by the rich, full and impressively scaled medium weight plus flavors that evidence a trace of minerality on the firm, balanced and strikingly long finish. Lovely and this is a Pommard of refinement but still a Pommard. Drink 2018+. *Sweet Spot Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Pousse d’Or 2008 Pommard Jarollieres evinces some of the same smoky machine oil-like aromas as its sibling Clos d’Audignac, here allied to roasted game and cooked ripe blackberry. An abundance of tannin remains relatively fine-grained, and will in any case have been exacerbated by the wine’s having just been bottled. Stony, peaty, gamy, and bitter-edged black fruit notes dominate in a rather somber finish, though that, too, is surely a bit dampened-down by bottling and there is a fundamental underlying fruity and carnal richness here that bodes well for a decade or more of cellaring. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

K&L Notes

This wonderful vineyard is on the border of Volnay, next to Pommard's "Les Rugiens." It is never as meaty as Rugiens, but shares some of the elegance and aromatics of Volnay.
