Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Fremiers from Louis Boillot has a touch of mint tincturing the brambly black fruit, strong tertiary notes developing in the glass and a hint of dried violet petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. It does not quite deliver the length, but one can appreciate the balance and purity of the fruit here. It constitutes considerate winemaking in a difficult vintage for Pommard.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028
