Lot #238. Domaine de Courcel Pommard Les Rugiens 2013

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93+ ST.
"Bright, dark red. As much black fruits as red on the nose, along with subtle complicating notes of iron, spices and underbrush. Pliant, rich and sweet, with slightly wild flavors of raspberry, tobacco and iron energized by saline minerality. The supple tannins of this very complete, long Pommard are totally buffered by concentrated fruit. This has the class and nuance of a top Côte de Nuits wine. Yves Confuron told me that 2013 was riper than 2010 and Domaine de Courcel, then opened a bottle of the 2010 Grand Clos des Epenots to compare it to the '13. I'm not sure he proved his point, as the 2013 currently conveys a crunchier fruit impression and the 2010 boasts superb breadth, but both vintages offer outstanding transparency to soil. The 2013s were bottled in September of 2015 without fining or filtration." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, Nov 2015
Provenance: The Arctique Cellar
