This particular block selection is focused upon old-vine Pommard grapes, and the result is a layered and deeply focused wine that continually evolves once poured. It's a delicate explosion of textures and flavors, berry and cherry, wet stone, cola and caramel. Though it will surely age beautifully over a decade or longer, if you give it ample aeration and attention, it drinks quite nicely already.
