Pommard Charmots 1er Cru 2018

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Terroir: Coming from two small parcels located at the mid-slope, that ideally dominates Premier Cru ” Les Epenots” perfectly exposed to the East and South-East, with marly limestone soil, not very deep, stony and draining.

Vinification: The grapes are handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stays on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) is done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged entirely in new oak barrels for 17 months.

Additional Information

Classical ruby red. Subtle with delicate spicy and fruity (vanilla, cherry) and slightly mentholated notes. The palate is delicious and smooth. Tasty fruity texture evolving into spicy and menthol notes. Fine, fresh and subtle tannins.

    "The 2018 Pommard Les Charmots 1er Cru is 100% whole-bunch fruit this year, and the stem addition works well on the detailed, characterful nose, which offers light sous-bois and cedar aromas behind the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a very sweet entry – perhaps a little too sweet considering the more refined aromatics – and subsequently it loses its way and feels a little muddled. Starts well, but it needs to work on its finish."
    Grade: 87-89 points
