2016 Domaine Gabriel Billard Pommard Les Vaumuriens
Those who play Insider Burgundyball know that Les Vaumuriens is a Premier Cru vineyard that divides into bas and haut. In most years, Claudie produces both and labels (and prices) them as Premier Crus. But in low yield years like 2016, she only makes one, combines both bas and haut drops Premier Cru from the label and lowers the price. What you’re getting here is a Premier Cru wine at a Village level price. As with the Millaine, the terroir of Pommard shines through – lush raspberry fruit, cherries, wild berries, violets and hints of currants and ultra-ripe cranberries. The palate is full, rounded and filled with depth on the mid-palate, which resolves into fine-grained tannin on the back. The finish is extremely long, revealing that this wine is good young, but will last many years in the cellar. A classic, noble and refined Vaumuriens.
