2005 Ardhuy, Pommard 1er Les Fremiers
Deep colour, and still rather young-looking colour at that. Deep, dark blackcurrant and cherry notes, a faint whiff of (probably oak) spice too. Concentrated, intense, this conceals rippling muscle below a sauve-suited exterior – there’s simply no other vintage that this wine could come from, given the blend of density and concentration, yet balance too – though maybe I won’t go as far as to say ‘grace’. Ripe, understated tannin would beg a rule-change from the Pommard ‘norm’. Smooth, attention-holding drinking – just a superbly accomplished wine – I wish I had bought more; my recent ‘stock-check’ pointing to just one more in the cellar.
Rebuy – Yes
