Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Near the centre of Pommard, this enclosed monopole has produced a very bright style. Strong in dark fruits with hints of liquorice and spice, the overriding sensation is one of sweet fruit flavours, ripe and full, with a broad tannic density. Beautifully complete and very long.

    Score: 91-94

    This is the first wine to display any reduction along with a bit more wood influence. Otherwise the refined yet overtly powerful flavors once again possess so much dry extract that they come across as velvety and forward just until the almost painfully intense finish where the character changes to a youthfully austere, dusty and very serious finale. Like all of the wines in the range, this is a big 2016 with plenty of muscle and excellent aging potential. Sweet spot Outstanding. Drink 2031+

    Score: 92-94

    Bright ruby-red. Deep, ripe aromas of black cherry and chocolatey oak, plus a high-toned whiff of sherry. Then large-scaled and aromatic in the mouth, conveying stronger terroir personality than the foregoing wines. Complex and fine-grained, with a positive trace of bracing bitterness. Chewy, chocolatey, well-integrated tannins take over the entire mouth on the back end. This nuanced, fine-grained wine finishes with a trace of dried herbs and has the structure to age. The yield here was just eight hectoliters per hectare, according to estate manager Yves Confuron.

    Light nose. Sweet start and a hint of meat extract. Lots to chew on the end. Needs time! Drink 2025-2042

Producer

Domaine de Courcel

De Courcel is one of the Côte de Beaune’s grandest estates, having been in the ownership pf the de Courcel family since the late 17th century. The estate is skilfully managed by Yves Confuron from Vosne Romanée. He prefers to pick late, allowing him to vinify with whole bunches and age his wines a little longer in cask before bottling, which he feels provides an added layer of texture to the wines.

Region

Pommard

A long popular appellation, Pommard is yet another exclusive red wine area which produces by far the most structured reds of the Côte de Beaune. It extracts rich body and long ageing potential from the limestone/iron-rich clay soil. Some examples can be markedly rustic, yet as time has passed and winemaking know-how has improved, Pommard's wines are becoming softer and more approachable when young. Its vines cover 317 hectares of which over a third are premier cru vineyards. Several have pronounced following and even one, Les Rugiens, is being pushed to become a grand cru.
