2007 Billard Gabriel, Pommard Les VaumuriensMay. 2010
Nicely perfumed red fruit. In the mouth there’s a little more structure than fruit. Finishes okay with some astringency – not for drinking young!
2007 Billard Gabriel, Pommard Les CharmotsMay. 2010
From 80 year-old vines Deeper with darker red fruit. The tannin is much finer and the fruit is nicely elegant. Subtly long. Very nice wine.
2006 Billard Gabriel, Pommard Les VaumuriensMay. 2010
The red fruit aromas are a little more sugared. Fuller than the 2007 Charmots with more tannin – some astringency. The tannin sticks to your gums and really adds to the length.
2006 Billard Gabriel, Pommard Les CharmotsMay. 2010
Higher toned aromas with more herbs. The tannin has a real ascendency next to the fruit, but it’s young and there’s super length.
1998 Billard Gabriel, Bourgogne Pinot NoirApr. 2010
Cuvée Millianne. Lovely dark aromas of leaves and undergrowth – but clean aromas. Sweet, very good in the mid-palate, still some tannin as a backdrop to the melting flavours – a superb bourgogne!
1988 Billard Gabriel, PommardApr. 2010
Wide, earthy, leafy aromatics. Sweet but not too sweet fruit, still with plenty of fine, astringent tannin. Lots of earthy flavour here. This is lovely.
1999 Billard Gabriel, Pommard Les CharmotsMar. 2010
Warm red fruits on the nose with a little mineral dimension too. After the villages wines there’s a little more impact and concentration. A width of dark fruit balanced by young structure – a baby.
