2001 de Courcel Pommard 1er Grand Clos des Épenots
Medium colour with a hint of salmon red at the rim. Rose petals, faint stems and an undertow of meat on the nose. Still a little tannin, which, if you look closely enough has an element of astringency. Really interesting fruit that’s powdery and red with just enough sweetness – this really perks up with food. Very good but not yet great…
Rebuy – Yes

    A monstrously tough year for de Courcel — Yves told me that after the hail, there were no leaves on the vines. And yet, look what he came up with.

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