2015 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Pommard 1er Cru "Les Jarollieres"

SKU #1317340 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is also sufficiently reduced that it's not possible to offer an assessment of the nose. The richer and more imposingly scaled flavors possess excellent mid-palate density along with plenty of extract that imparts a caressing mouth feel to the opulent finish that is firm but not rustic while delivering sneaky good length on the well-balanced finale. This should be quite good in time.  (4/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

 (one-third of these vines are just 7 years old, one-third 30 and one-third "very old," according to Patrick Landanger): Full ruby. Pungent mineral and violet notes lift the aromas of black cherry and black raspberry; showing a distinct Volnay aspect but then these vines are next to Pommard's border with Volnay. Sweet, slightly medicinal kirsch and chocolate flavors boast lovely ripeness for Pommard but also excellent energy and lift. Big, broad, ripe tannins saturate the mouth and build. A wonderfully fine-grained, horizontal Pommard that leaves the palate refreshed.(ST)  (1/2017)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Les Jarollières offers succulent black cherry, cassis and iodine scents on the nose that needs to muster more Pommard-like characteristics. It needs to reflect more sense of place. The palate is dense and grippy on the entry with firm tannin, a powerful Pommard with a sprinkle of white pepper towards the finish. I appreciate the balance here, although it does lack the finesse of some of its peers.  (12/2016)

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
