Pommard 2007, Jean-Marc Bouley

My blind-tasting experience tells me that the traditional distinction between velvety Volnays and muscular Pommards is only true for the wines at extremes of the communes. After all, the Volnay premier cru "Les Frémiets" is right next to the Pommard premier cru "Les Jarolières". That said, this Pommard is singularly different from the domaine's Volnay. A good deep purple, red coulour, oak, black cherry and plum nose. Even shading towards truffle and possibly peanut? Good structure and fruit. A solid Pommard. The photo shows Pommard vineyards next to the "avenue de dégustation" as you exit Beaune towards Meursault.
