Spicy bouquet highlighted by well-integrated oak and subtle berry flavours. Lovely, soft, well-balanced wine. No pesticides are sprayed on the vines and only organic fertilizers are used. The land is ploughed to aerate and enrich the soil, and weedkillers are avoided.

Wine AdvocateThe Pousse d'Or 2006 Pommard Jarollieres emits alkaline, saline, well-hung game, beef stock-like and sweaty aromas, establishing animal and mineral themes that persist even as plum and cherry fruit loom into view on the palate. There is a leather-like aura to this Pinot of not only animal and mineral character but also tannic toughness. Were there more brightness present, I might be more enthusiastic - though certainly "charmed" would never cross my mind - by this. But, in fairness, the wine might have been moody on the occasion of our meeting, and given its sheer density, it certainly deserves to be revisited to reassess its full potential.
