The Chantal Lescure Pommard "Les Vaumuriens" is from a steep northeast facing slope abutting Volnay, just above "Les Rugiens." The vines are 45 - 50 years old, grown on very rocky soils of brown limestone over limestone marl and hard limestone giving very earthy wines very marked by the terroir. I've always found wines from "Les Vaumuriens" to be a bit difficult and unyielding, but in this era of riper fruit and higher alcohol, the beautiful terroir expression from this site seems more intriguing and food friendly. The 2021 shows a bright red/black color with very pretty high-toned black cherry/blackberry/cranberry aromas with stone and licorice. There is a beautiful intensity of black fruits, earth and minerals on the palate which is dense and sapid but very fresh. Fantastic length of fruit and terroir flavors. Delicious now in its youthful intensity, best to wait a few years then appreciate the interesting food parings, energy and maturity "racinaires" of this wine. David Lillie
