Domaine de Courcel has been around for a long time, 400 years to be exact. The estate, located in the village of Pommard, boasts 9.5 hectares of prime Premier Cru real estate.

Pinot fruit is harvested from four vineyards in particular: Le Grand Clos des Epenots, Les Rugiens, Les Fremiers and Les Croix Noires. Currently, winemaker Yves Confuron is known for producing concentrated, generous red Burgundies made from fruit harvested very late for maximum ripeness.

While these wines possess the sweetness to give early pleasure, they also have the structure and stuffing to age. In addition to the Premier Crus, Domaine de Courcel also produces a Pommard Vaumuriens, a Bourgogne Pinot Noir and a Bourgogne Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Allen Meadows
Here too there is a hint of menthol to the less elegant but more complex nose that displays a dazzling array of spice, floral, earth, underbrush and red currant aromas. There is outstanding richness to the powerful and velvet-textured big-bodied flavors brimming with ample amounts of dry extract that relegate the firm tannic spine to the background on the mouth coating and hugely long finish. This is a burly and quite serious effort that is not especially rustic though one that will require plenty of cellar time to reach its peak. *Outstanding*
