TNS: 1993 Château Troplong Mondot, 1995 Bernard Fevre Pommard 1er Cru Les Épenots

3 hour ox, and 1 hour gentle decant.
Throwing a good deal of sediment, but no real bricking. Lovely floral and spice nose. On the palate full and soft with a touch of caramel/port, but still with fruit and a decent acid backbone.

Very nice, and probably good thing this was the last one. Went well with lamb chops, grilled tomatoes and feta and bruschetta.

Lightish color, but clear. Fresh in the nose, with a touch of leaves and slight dirt (the good kind). Soft and just a bit chunky in the mouth, but still refreshing. Good balance of fruit and grip.

Nice with roast corn-fed chicken, roast pumpkin and broccoli.

Ah, I see the patient collector is reaping his rewards! Never heard of a Fevre in Pommard. The few 95 Burgs I have had have tended toward the shrill and acidic, so your note is encouraging. The best I’ve had, by a long shot, was the 95 Heresztyn Gevrey “Perrieres.”
