- Tasting Notes
As was the case from barrel, firm reduction completely masks the underlying fruit. On a more positive note there is outstanding concentration to the sappy and velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with extract which also helps to buffer the markedly firm tannins on the rustic and slightly warm finale. Like the Aloxe in its fashion, this is very Pommard in style and while not an elegant wine, there is no lack of underlying material. The nose aside, this is not without its strong points but with that said, I can’t confidently opine that the reductive funk will ever clean up.

The 2015 Pommard Clos des Ursulines Domaine du Pavillon offers perfumed red cherry, raspberry preserve and bergamot scents on the well-defined nose. The palate is well balanced with sappy red berry fruit, well-judged acidity, then a slightly chalky texture on the edgy finish that should develop the necessary counterbalancing flesh by the time of bottling. Good potential here.
