2007 Billard-Gonnet, Pommard Clos des VergersMay. 2010
One of only two producers of this 1er. The herb aromas are set against slightly riper fruit. Lots of tannin but it’s pretty supple. Lots of flavour intensity here – very good.
1999 Pillot Fernand et Laurent, Pommard Clos des VergersMar. 2010
Plenty of dark-toasty oak aromas overly a soft red fruit. Fresher than the nose leads me to expect. Very good if dark oak influenced flavours. Balanced tannin and medium length.
2004 Billard-Gonnet, Pommard Clos des VergersAug. 2007
Rather deeply coloured. The nose starts tight, clean, slightly floral but gets progressively more impressive with red fruit that has a twist of blueberry in the mix – despite being primary it becomes very lovely – there is a hint of the vintage green somewhere but it’s on such a low level it is really additive. The palate is linear and intense, also very clean and mineral even. It’s just a little more unruly in the mid-palate but only because it’s so effusive. It’s a lower-case finish showing a slightly creamy undertone. This is very impressive for a 2004, I must look out for the 2005!
