2019 Thierry Glantenay Pommard Sausilles Premier Cru
The latest rendition of a cuvée that goes from strength to strength, Glantenay's old vine 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Saussilles offers up notions of Griotte cherries, cassis, potpourri and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, racy and concentrated, with superb depth at the core and a saline finish, it's well worth seeking out. As I've written before, this climat takes its name from the Combe Saussilles, a shallow ravine that divides the communes of Beaune and Pommard—and, importantly, an air drainage for cool breezes from the Hautes-Côtes.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Pommard Les Saucilles 1er Cru, matured with 30-40% whole bunches, just lacks a little intensity on the nose compared to Glantenay’s other crus. Light rose petal notes emerge with time. The palate is pretty with tart red berries mixed with a splash of size, gentle in the mouth and just missing a little grip on the finish. I suspect that this will be one of the domaine’s earlier drinking crus. Drink 2021 - 2029.
