Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Pommard-Chanlins-2015

Clos de la Chapelle, Pommard ''Chanlins'', 2015

“Chanlins is one of my favorite vineyards in Pommard, as both the premier cru and villages sections of the vineyard produce very elegant interpretations of Pommard. The eighty- six year-old vines here have really excelled in 2015, with the wine offering a great combination of sappy red fruit, superb transparency and a very elegant structural chassis- particularly for young Pommard! The bouquet is nicely reserved, but also deep and sappy, offering up scents of red plums, cherries, gamebird, a touch of nutskin, violets, a marvelous base of soil, just a hint of mustard seed, cedar and raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, but also very nicely reserved in profile out of the blocks and built for the long haul. The tannins here are ripe, fine-grained and beautifully integrated, with good acids, excellent focus and a very, very long, perfectly balanced finish giving this wine superb potential. This is every bit as refined in personality as the top Volnays here this year!”
