Domaine Parent Pommard la Croix Blanche 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit of rose and aromatic cedary wood greets the nose followed by dusty crushed stone and small cranberry tones. Nicely floral an the attack as well which features lovely acids and ripe tannins that frame the crisp, stony fruit. A biggish wine for a straight Bourgogne though the backend is a little lean at this stage though the finish is impressively long with cherry pit and tea tones and a hint of lime leaf on the finale. 88pts

Domaine PARENT based in Pommard (Burgundy, France) was founded in 1803. Today it is headed by two sisters, Anne & Catherine Parent, who continue the family tradition of winegrowers that originate from the 17th century. The Domaine consists of 10 hectares that produce mostly red wines from the Côte de Beaune. The real speciality is the wines produced from Pommard, however wines from the appellations of Corton, Ladoix, Beaune, Monthelie and Volnay are also produced. The vines grow on clay-limestone soils, coloured red by iron oxide. These soils enable the Pinot Noir (and Chardonnay) grape variety to express its characteristics perfectly. The vineyards are all treated organically, and the harvest is done by hand. After rigorous sorting, the grape bunches are de-stemmed, and whole-berry temperature-controlled fermentation follows (12-20 days). The wines are aged for 16-18 months with 30-60% new French oak. The Domaine sells the majority of its wines to export markets. Anne PARENT, the winemaker is heavily involved in the region, well qualified and respected. She is currently head of communications for the Burgundy Wine Council (BIVB). Also, 8 years ago, she established an association called Femmes et Vins de Bourgogne, which is a group of female winemakers and viticulturists from the region. Catherine looks after the French, various export markets ( Russia, Canada,…), the communication and the administration. Domaine PARENT’s philosophy is to make wines with purity, complexity, elegance and power. Their exceptional quality is the result of the rigorous efforts made by the Parent family. A range of approximately 15 wines ensures that Domaine PARENT maintains its name and reputation with Burgundy enthusiasts throughout the world. Read less

A complex fruity nose giving way to a light attack with mango chutney and strawberries on the mouth, slightly tart, and short-lived.

Cherries and cinnamon spice on the nose, flavors are enveloping, nice and rustic, good acidity and balance. There's a nice bright cherry juiciness to the wine. Good, classic Pinot taste.

Lean mineral nose. Fairly sharp and lean, with a light cherry flavor, and some cinammon. Lean, mineral, green finish.

Nothing too much on the nose. Maybe some light almost ripe cherries. Clean taste. Not bad.
