The 2013 Pommard 1er Cru les Arvelets has a perfumed mocha and burnt-toast tinged bouquet, the new oak impeding upon the fruit aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with good depth and acidity, yet my main gripe is again, too much new oak dominating the finish and making it rather generic.
Burly, rocky nose ? not a fruit-driven style even at this early stage. Even though the tannins are silky, this is a sturdy, old-fashioned-feeling Pommard.
