Peter Maude Fine Wines
2014, Domaine Thierry Violot-Guillemard, POMMARD, 1er Cru, 'La Platiere'
An exuberantly fresh, expressive and relatively high-toned nose is comprised by mostly red berry fruit aromas where additional nuance is present in the form of earth, menthol and discreet spice wisps. There is noticeable minerality to the supple and round yet attractively well-detailed middle weight flavours that possess good verve and a saline character on the solidly complex, persistent and relatively refined finish where a hint of bitter cherry arises. 90/100 Burghound.
