Tasting Notes

A terrific right bank site next to Blanchots and Les Clos which produces powerful and complex wines. Real depth to the fruit, which also shows a little more richness than some of the cooler sites, but there is great energy and verve on the finish with a classic gunflint character. Drink 2012-2018.

Reviews & Scores

Pale yellow-green color. Crushed stone, lime oil and ethereal white flowers on the nose. Wonderfully elegant wine combining serious richness and density with terrific grip. The white peach, spearmint and spice flavors are complicated by a soil-driven saline minerality. Finishes with superb grip and dusty length. This is two-thirds Chapelots and one-third Pied d'Aloue, the former providing fat and the latter minerality, according to winemaker Seguier. Grand cru suavity and complexity here. - 92-94 points

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvée Maison Dieu" comes from vines just under those of Château de Pommard, close to the roundabout. It has a generous bouquet with red cherries and raspberry fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, crunchy red fruit with a slightly terse finish. Neil Martin
