Description

Both the En Creches and Pommards are regular value hound delights, with an uncommonly good sense of stuffing and complexity. This year is no exception….The En Crêches offers notably more white floral appeal and a similar if slightly more intense sense of limestone mineral underpinnings than the Macon Vergisson la Roche. Its sense of length and sustain is similarly driven moreso by its mineral saltiness, in a gently persistent expansive fashion. It is an excellent value play and overall package that has everyday Chardo written all over it. A little * awarded here.

“(from vines in Davayé). Here too there is just enough wood lurking in the background of the ripe and more floral-suffused aromas of pear and apple to merit pointing out. There is slightly better underlying vibrancy to the delicious and nicely detailed middleweight flavors that conclude in a youthfully austere and attractively dry finale. This too should drink well young but a year or two of keeping should help to add depth. (87-90)/2025+” Allen Meadows
