    Less developed than its Volnay sibling due to a late malolactic fermentation, the 2019 Pommard Les Riottes mingles notes of plums and berries with hints of smoke and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, deep and elegantly muscular, there's more heft and substance here than in the corresponding Volnay, without any loss of refinement.

    The only cuvée to be taken from vat instead of barrel, the 2019 Pommard Les Riottes has a potent bouquet with black cherries and blueberry fruit laced with iris and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit with a hint of cassis. Nicely balanced with a touch more cohesion that Glantenay’s Volnay, I envisage this aging nicely. Drink 2022 - 2035.
