Drinking Tonight - 1964 Pommard, P. A. André

In fact, I opened two Pommard´s from the greatest vintage ever, but the bottle from Louis Affre turned out to be a poster child for a corked wine. I could smell the wet cardboard several meters away...
But the other bottle made up for it.

1964 Pommard, P. A. André
The nose is deep, mature and hedonistic with notes of dried strawberries, moist forest floor, coffee powder, veal stock and dried flowers. This has a gorgeous mix of red and black fruits in perfect maturity. While writing this it is on its third hour in the glass and has not budged a bit, in fact it has got better, more sweet and harmonious. Really fine.
The taste is velevety, mature and intense with notes of dried raspberries, liquorice, forest floor, cold coffee and worn leather. A long, balanced finish with a nice warmth. This has matured into a great drinking Pommard.
