2019 Georges Glantenay Pommard 1er Combes Dessus



From a small-is-beautiful .19 hectare parcel of 60+ year old vines, this reference point quality example of the little seen Combes Dessus was first vinified separately in 2015 thanks to the new small tanks that were added to the winery after its full renovation in 2013. This sits right at the border of Pommard/Volnay, contiguous with Volnay 1er les Brouillards.

“Black cherry, dark raspberry and plum see added breadth in the form of warm earth and an interesting hint of clove. There is fine volume to the generously proportioned yet focused flavors that conclude in a bitter pit fruit and mildly austere finale where a vague suggestion of rusticity slowly emerges. Worth checking out. (90-93)/2029+” Allan Meadows ———-> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”

“A small holding of 0.20ha planted in 1958. The first bottling was 2015, as the previous generation sold off rather more in bulk. Attractive red purple, the bouquet is delightful, very appealing for a young Pommard, with good crisp finish, and some weight at the back. Very good!” 91-94 Jasper Morris Four Stars
