2001 Vincent Dancer Pommard Les Perrières - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Pommard (3/21/2011)
From the last batch of Burgundy that I direct imported, this is the first of four bottles of this that I have. Opened and consumed over 3 hours with veal chops, simple rice and salad.
On the nose this is all crushed red berries with a bit of a lift. The palate is similar, with acid to lift the fruit but not anything that cuts off the finish. As this opened, the finish became longer and the palate showed mature red fruit. Not old, certainly not off, but the difference between a fully ripe red raspberry and one that’s just a bit underripe. The mouthfeel lost a bit of vibrancy but gained a bit of plushness. This wine is close to the end of its fruit driven youth… that will last a few more years, but in about 5 years or so I’d anticipate this starting to enter its mature phase. Lovely now, though.
