Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Les Jarollières offers succulent black cherry, cassis and iodine scents on the nose that needs to muster more Pommard-like characteristics. It needs to reflect more sense of place. The palate is dense and grippy on the entry with firm tannin, a powerful Pommard with a sprinkle of white pepper towards the finish. I appreciate the balance here, although it does lack the finesse of some of its peers.
