Jean-Claude Boisset Pommard 1er cru les Arvelets 2019
Origin: Nuits-Saint Georges, Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Producer's notes: Between Beaune and Volnay extends the vast vineyard of Pommard which unfolds on each side of a monumental combe. The plot "Les Arvelets" is located at the exit of this valley on the north slope. Exposed south with a clay-limestone soil rich in iron oxide covered with alluvium and silt, this premier cru is the steepest of the appellation. The Latin roots of the word "arvelet" refer to the presence of old fields, plowing land at this location.
The color is garnet red. The very intense nose exhales various aromas of blueberries, cherries with alcohol, embellished with some notes of blond tobacco and vanilla. On the palate, this round and elegant wine is supported by silky tannins.
