2005 La Pousse d'Or Pommard 1er Cru Les Jarollieres, Cote de Beaune, France
$149.99 USD $167.99 USD
Bright ruby-red. Complex, high-pitched aromas of black cherry, licorice and spices. Lovely sweetness to its dark fruit, licorice, menthol and earth flavors, with lively acids providing excellent cut. There's an almost peppery quality to this very fresh and sharply delineated 2005. Quite fine and airy for Pommard. Finishes dense and energetic, with traces of iron and leather.
