Character and style The ruby colour is nice. The nose is very closed in his first young life (2 first years) and it will develop with time. The red and black fruits are accompanied by small fine tannins and slight spices. Especially on this vintage the nuances of the soil and the wild side of a classic Pommard will require a few years.

Ageing and service To keep 10-15 years. Temperature of service: 15-16°C
