Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    One of the very best lieux dits in the village, sitting above the great Rugiens vineyard. A powerfully structured village cuvée, representing the classical brooding masculinity of Pommard. With big, mature, gamey, dark fruit flavours, the wine has a full tannic structure, with all the fruit and energy to support; it will age very well.

    Score: 88-91

    Tasting note: There is a whiff of volatile acidity to the aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, violet and newly turned earth. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the racy mineral-driven flavors that are dense yet well-detailed, all wrapped in a mouth coating finish that also reflects a hint of warmth. Drink 2024+

    Score: 16+

    A hint of vegetation. Round and charming. Lots of early delivery of pleasure. Although there's a mass of slightly bitter tannins underneath. Very emphatic and extracted. Drink 2023-2030

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.
