Maison Shaps Pommard 2018 Les Vaumuriens
The 2018 vintage was an incredible year for Burgundy. A very hot summer with little rain made sure that the grapes ripened to perfect levels, giving the fruit the potential for great depth and complexity. The wine exhibits all the classical flavors typically associated with Pommard like dark fruit and earthy undertones. Black cherry, blackberry and violets dominate the nose while mushroom and potting soil round out the long finish. This is a very age-worthy wine, capable of being cellared for about 10 years.
