2002 de Courcel, Pommard Clos des EpenotsMar. 2005
Drunk directly following Bichot’s 2001 Vosne-Romanée. Deeper medium-plus cherry-red. The nose is sweet and black, actually very nice and pretty though primary. The palate doesn’t show an obvious concentration upgrade vs the Vosne and in the mouth certainly isn’t as texturally impressive. Plenty of medium-grain tannin and good acidity. Again a nice black cherry aspect to the palate coupled with a medium finish. Nice, fun and tasty but I expected just a little more…

Medium-plus cherry with purple hints. High toned nose has flowers and fruits. Wow, extra strong tannin and high acid, like a top Grand Cru in stature if not quite fineness. The fruit is definitely a match though. This is excellent.
