Cathrine et Claude Maréchal Pommard La Chaniere 2019 750ml

La Chaniere

Pommard 2019

La Chanière is the vineyard on the north side of the road leading from Pommard to the Hautes-Côtes, just up the canyon from the premier cru Les Arvelets. It is a cold climate terroir. In a sunny vintage like 2019 this is a very good thing - this is a wine of density, and it is very tightly coiled this year too. This wine casts aside the claim that Pommard produces muscular, unrefined wines -  this is a sensual beauty with lovely concentration and balance! I was gifted a bottle of the 2005 by Claude a few years ago - it was glorious - resolved, complex and delicious - evidently still with many years left as it was brimming with fruit. Great Burgundy!
