Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Pommard Les Vignots 2011 Wine Review

This wine proved to be a very enjoyable, archetypal Pommard. It is labelled as “Les Vignots” which is a lieu-dit, rather than premier cru, so this remains a Pommard villages wine. It presented however more like a premier cru. Les Vignots is not particularly far from Pommard premier crus Les Arvelets and La Platière, although I am duly cautious of “not far from” claims which can equally describe vaste swathes of Burgundy. The very good Bourgogne Wines website has more about Pommard here.

In the glass, the wine immediately reminds of minerals and stones, with red fruits in the background. The palate is medium bodied, the acidity high and the tannins pleasingly firm. It has a stoney seam that runs through it, that resembles Pommard of the textbooks. The wine is drinking very well now, and I suggest it has entered its best drinking window. Drink over the next 5 or 6 years. Rating: Very Good. Website: Producer; Vivino; Wine Searcher. Reviewed: September 2021.
