STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Marc-Emmanuel Cyrot and his brother, Olivier, are the fourth generation of the Cyrot family to be involved in wine. The wines are made traditionally; harvested by hand, de-stemmed and cold-macerated before fermentation. Oak aging of their wines is determined by the vintage character, generally between 10% and 35%.
94 points: "The bouquet here regales with aromas of raspberry and cherry. There's a slight background richness in the shape of spice and bramble inflections with hints of floral and vanilla from 20 per cent ageing in oak. It has a good tannic structure, plenty of juicy cherry fruit and vibrant acidity. Decant this for best results and serve with pheasant, other game birds and duck."

This wine shows all the classic characteristics of quality Pommard. Relatively powerful tannins & firm structure accompanied by a bright ripe cherry fruit, laced with a stony/flinty mineral quality along with firm tannins . This is a wine for aging 4-6 years (from vintage) or for the impatient, decanted a good 2 hrs before serving.
