2017 Pommard "Les Trois Follots" (Lefas, Aubert)
Aubert Lefas, Pommard "Les Trois Follots," Burgundy, France 2017100% Pinot Noir FIRM & ELEGANT, PLUM & RED BERRY, HERBACEOUS SPICE Situated within Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune, Pommard is famous not only for its quality and majestic complexity but for being the origin of what are often Burgundies most sternly constituted Pinots (thanks in part to the appellation’s iron-rich clay soils). The output of Aubert Lefas (Domaine Lejeune) embodies the region’s signature character. Deep, dark, and intense, it’s fuilled with red fruit, earth, leather, floral spic, and herbs. Its impressively lengthy finish will teleport you the hills of the Cote d’Or as you contemplate why you waited so long to visit and wondering if you’ll be able to pull yourself away. Serving Suggestion: Seared Duck Medallions in a red wine pan sauce w/ black truffle butter. Lamb Navarin w/ potatoes, carrots, & peas.
