Domaine Jean Garaudet, Pommard Les Noizons (lieux-dits villages) 1990

Jean Garaudet Pommard Noizons 1990

Medium crimson red color with some tawny notes.  Bold, plump, satisfying nose: plum pudding, black currant rôti, forest floor, mineral.  Plenty of ripe, aromatic, slightly cooked fruit here; a very ’90 Pommard.  Structured, vigorous and meaty on the palate, not too sturdy or dense as Pommards sometimes can be: macerated black stone cherry, mocha, liquorice.  Firm tannins, not too rude or brutal.  Good grip; fresh acidity.  A little more stylish with a little more depth that the Delagrange on this night.  Not the greatest dimension but rich, tumescent and abundant.  Very good.  Now – 2016.
