The plot of Domaine de Courcel covers 79 acres planted in pinot noir which gives a racy and elegant wine with fine tannins and aromas of fine spices and cooked fruits .
After manual harvesting and severe sorting, vinification takes place at a low temperature, in a logic that is as interventionist as possible , before aging in oak barrels, which are renewed every third year.
Cut for guards over ten years old , this Pommard Premier Cru can be used on roasted red meat or game. The 2006 vintage is bold, balanced and slowly approaching its peak. That of 2007 is fruity, woody and ample. As for 2008, year marked by climatic vagaries, she gave a generous wine , dense and velvety.Full, rich and meaty, this evokes sweet spices, licorice and cherry flavors buoyed by a wall of ripe tannins.
