This Pinot Noir is slightly more extracted than usual showing a medium ruby color in the glass with small, fast moving legs showing off the moderate 13% ABV. The nose gives me telltale rose and funky barnyard aromas typically associated with this varietal. I also get cherry, strawberry, straw and orange peel. The palate is dry, low in tannins, silky smooth and delicious. Juicy acidity hits by way of sour cherry and pomegranate- the strawberry and orange peel having vanished by now. Light to medium bodied this racy wine has got a tart yet delightful finish that is medium (+) in length. Pommard produces some delicious, powerful and rich wines, this regional example is true to the style. At $24 this 91 point wine gets 5 stars from me. Pair it with duck, venison, roast Cornish hens or just by itself! I would drink this wine till 2028. Salut….
