Pommard, Les Fremiers, 1er Cru 2010 Domaine Courcel
The Domaine Courcel is one on the top Domaines in Pommard. It is run by by Yves Confuron of the Domaine Confurno-Cotetidot and the focus is on low yields, late harvesting, whole bunch vinification, cold maceration and long elevage. The Domaine owns many old-vines parcels including this block in the Premier Cru Fremiers vineyard whose vines average 65 years old. Wine Spectator scored this 90 points saying "Rich and fleshy, exuding notes of black cherry, sandalwood and thyme. The tannins exhibit a granular texture, coaxing a dusty, mouthcoating feel from the austere finish. Best from 2016 through 2027." On SALE!!
