A Killer Young Village Burgundy: 2005 Domaine de Courcel Pommard

This past weekend I opened a very young Pommard from Domaine de Courcel. Intense nose of spice, saline, stone. Intense, laser-like precision to the mostly red fruit on the palate. Structured, but also slight sappy with fruit and a wisp of acidity. There's spicy-stemmy quality from the use of whole clusters here. It's on the young side, but it's putting out now. Just great and packed for a few more years of development in the cellar.
