Silky Pommard

I am a big fan of de Courcel wines, even though Yves Confuron, the wine maker, is a bit of a curmudgeon. This is particularly fine.

Pommard Premier Cru Grand Clos des Epenots 2002, Domaine de Courcel

Ah how pleasing; there are layers and layers of complex fruit and stylish minerality to the nose. It is positively oozing with class, profound aromas of completely loveliness. Yummy, scrummy. The palate is really svelte, silky and refined, with lovely ripe tannins and truly gorgeous fruit. This is really class action, utterly ravishing and completely desirable. No shortage of complexity and plenty of pleasure here. This is really pleasing now, but it has a long and glorious future ahead of it. There is a big grin slapped across my face, not only because I am loving this wine now, but also because I own a couple of magnums of this wine. Ho ho ho, I’ll drink them with my friends and even Jeremy, that master of Cote de Nuits wines who claims not to like Pommard, will freaking think they are tits++.
