Wine SpectatorA thick red, with chestnut, floral and spice notes and a soft core of warm fruit (plum and black cherry). With such supple tannins, you can enjoy this mouthful of a Pommard on release, or keep it since has a great length.
Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateReviewer, Pierre Rovani - The medium-to-dark ruby-colored 1997 Pommard Les Vignots reveals sweet dark cherry aromas intermingled with fresh herbs. This medium-to-full-bodied wine bursts on the palate with licorice-imbued red/black fruit flavors. Its copious (yet supple) tannins and oak-dominated finish should be absorbed into this offerings impressively dense fruit within one or two years.

Vintages can vary widely in Burgundy, with the best years far outperforming lesser years. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes reign supreme, with the best examples coming from forty Grand Crus such as Romanée-Conti, Echézeaux and Charmes-Chambertin.

FranceThough French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
