"The 2016 Pommard Villages, which was bottled in December as Jean-Pierre felt there was little point in extending the élevage, has a winsome cranberry and raspberry-scented bouquet, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, atypically showing more flesh and body than the Volnay Village, smooth in the mouth with lovely black plum and crushed strawberry on the easygoing finish. Lovely, just lovely....a divine bouquet with perfumed black cherry and raspberry fruit tinged with violet, quite Volnay-like in style and very seductive. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, fine body, nicely weighted in the mouth if, unlike the Epenots, just missing a touch of complexity on the finish. That may well develop with bottle age so cellar this for two or three years. Three barrels produced."
