- 1996 Joseph Drouhin Pommard - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Pommard (5/12/2006)
Darkish. The nose is lovely: vegetal with lots of beetroot, earthy but with only the very slightest hint of dung, with some strawberry and quite a bit of minerality. At first it was also a bit oaky, but that dissippated with air. The palate is quite tannic and thick even, but with fine balancing acidity and ripe fruit. Very long with a touch of minerality coming out on the finish. Lovely. Give it a few more years.
