The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru les Pezerolles was severely affected by hail, damaging 80% of the crop. Perhaps that is one reason why the new oak is quite high at 80% (although this is part of the domaine's regimen). The nose handles the new wood well: red berry fruit, touches of sage and rosemary, quite nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. This is well balanced and a little creamy in texture with impressive depth on the finish. This is actually a cuvée that does seem well integrated with the oak and it does not encroach upon the terroir expression on the finish to excess. It should be subsumed with 4-6 years of bottle age. Chapeau!
Francis Robertson: Above Épenots. Seductive rich fruit. Smooth and melted with such lovely supple texture. This is really lovely, full and rounded but with backbone.
