Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92 (2018 Apr.)

A classic Chaponnières nose combines notes of dark berry fruit, pungent earth, humus and a touch of the sauvage. The rich, muscular and solidly well-concentrated big-bodied flavors culminate in a mouth coating, moderately rustic and impressively persistent finish. The supporting tannins and are ripe and the balance is impeccable and overall, this is an old school Pommard that is very clearly built-to-age.

Vinous - Score: 91 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Pommard Les Chaponnières 1er Cru has an attractive bouquet with crushed strawberry and light undergrowth aromas, becoming earthier with aeration. Moderate vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly tough tannin on the entry, but redeemed by fine salinity and a harmonious, classically-lined finish with just the right amount of dryness. Fine. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)
