the grand crus of pommard…


No, it’s not April the 1st!

A large exercise that could be compared to pissing into the wind. That said, why not, Pommard is unfairly overlooked in the market so why not build up a bit of interest, although I don’t think Aubert Lefas (of Domaine Lejeune) comparing themselves to those grand cru paragons – the Clos de Vougeot or Corton – is the height of overselling 😉

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    I would be worried about this turning into a can of worms. Although there are certainly bits of Clos de Vougeot and Corton that aren’t grand cru, I would be surprised to find that Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques or Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses isn’t more expensive than anything in Pommard. And what will those Volnay folk say?

    Hum ! is my reaction but urinating into a breeze could be another I agree 😉

    Can of worms = politics does it (they) not though ?
