    ($72) Good full red. Superripe aromas and flavors of strawberry liqueur and licorice. Huge, sweet and distinctly liqueur-like. |A monster,| Confuron agreed, |like 2002 in the direction of 2003. It has balance and richness but not real class.| Finishes with big, broad tannins and an almost roasted ripeness. This persistent, outsized wine reminded me of biting into a chocolate truffle.

    A very fresh and densely fruited ripe red berry nose complements perfectly the rich, full and intense flavors that are robust, sleekly muscled and built on a base of minerality. While this is clearly a Pommard in basic character, it's also a Pommard with refinement and class and I very much admire the underlying sense of balance and quiet harmony. In a word, terrific.

    Toasty oak aromas lead into black cherry and plum notes, with hints of chocolate and spice. The beefy tannins show up on the finish and require time to mellow. This is a muscular red, with a long, mineral-tinged finish.

    Undeniably rich in fruit yet uncompromisingly tannic, the 2005 Pommard Fremiers features tart black cherry, bitter-sweet preserved walnut, pungent flowers, and beef bouillon. Pithy in its fine tannins and faintly bitter fruit pit personality, salty, and piquantly nutty, it lays down impressive finishing traces, though dogged by tannins that must at some point come to heel if this well-concentrated and complex wine is to fulfil its potential.
