Vincent Girardin Pommard Vieilles Vignes 2016

Wine Spectator 91 points - Intense strawberry, cherry and floral flavors are matched up against a taut structure in this compact red. Balanced, with a long if slightly austere finish today. Needs time to relax. Best from 2021 through 2035. 900 cases made, 600 cases imported. (Oct 31 2019)

AGE OF THE VINE
65 years old
GEOLOGY
The grapes come from the village of Pommard in the south of the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay. Soil : limestone and a little clay. South East exposure. 100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
VINIFICATION
Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks.The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.
AGEING
The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (15% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Pommard is bottled when the moon is down and when the day is fruit according to the lunar calendar.
TASTING NOTE
The Pommard wine has a dark red colour with intense and percussive aromas of blackcurrant, musk and game. Acidity well-marked and a mellowness that only appears after a minimum of maturation. Tannic and charpented wine.
FOOD PAIRING
Game or various cheeses.
