Pommard les Riottes Domaine Jean et Pierre Tartois 2002

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £12 from a wine merchant in Sussex.Pommard is an AOC created in 1937 for red wines from the commune of that name on the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy.It is made from the Pinot Noir grape although up to 15% of the white grapes; chardonnay,pinot blanc and pinot gris may be used in a blend but this does not often happen.and I do not know whether Domaine Tartois have done so.I started my bottle the other night with my steak and I enjoyed it.There is plenty of a raspberry style fruit there and the tannins are smooth and mellow but still noticeable.It is certainly not bland.It has been said that Pommard is the most robust and masculine of Burgundies and this example would certainly bear that out although it still has that subtlety and delicacy that Burgundy drinkers like.In short this was a lovely bottle
