2019, Domaine Thierry Violot-Guillemard, POMMARD, 1er Cru, "La Platière"
From a .7 ha parcel containing the Domaine's oldest vines planted in 1936. Lovely open vineyard on the upper mid-slope.
Deep and concentrated, the 2019 Pommard 1er Cru La Platière evokes aromas of rose petals, red berries, Indian spices, raw cocoa and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vibrant, with powdery tannins and lively acids, it's the most elegant young Platière that I've tasted from the domaine. 91-93 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
