Critic Reviews

“Spelt with an “r” on the Pommard side of the appellation border, this comes from a 0.8-hectare vineyard in Fremiers that yielded just two barrels in 2016. Made with 100% whole bunches, it’s not a wine for people who like floral red Burgundies. Thick and sappy with remarkable concentration and power and the concentration to age. 2028-36”

“Medium-deep red-ruby. Dark berry aromas are complicated by nuances of flowers and earth; more complex in a Volnay way than the Croix Noires and Pommard villages. Suave, plush and sweet in the mouth, conveying an impression of tension and a hint of saline minerality. More refined than the preceding samples, finishing with smooth tannins that coat the front teeth. This, too, has the density and aromatic interest of a Côte de Nuits wine.”
