Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Les Chaponnieres is developing nicely, opening in the glass with a sweet bouquet of red and black fruit, dark chocolate and a smoky framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with sappy acids, good depth at the core and fine-grained tannins. A very promising Pommard from this emerging talent.Author: William Kelley
Burghound | Rating: 93There is even better freshness to the plum liqueur, warm earth and forest floor-nuanced aromas. The rich, full-bodied and muscular flavors brim with dry extract that completely coats the palate on the powerful and firm but not really austere finale. This is surprisingly well-detailed given how rich and concentrated it is and this should amply reward extended cellaring yet it should also be reasonably approachable young.Author: Allen Meadows
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
