03 Thierry Violot-Guillemard, Pommard La Platiere 1er Cru

Like a child smoking candy cigarettes and drinking root beer on the porch or a young daughter dressed in her mother's gown, Thierry's monstrously delicate single-vineyard, old-vines Pommard is a wine that wants to grow old. But she'll long for her youth, her innocent, dimpled hubris of black cherry pit, red currant, chocolate-covered plum, and wild blueberry flavors; her perfume of herbes de provence, dark fruit jam, and lamb fat. We can't predict the future, but sometimes it can spark a glint within us that tells us not to worry--it will be as beautiful as the past.
