2009 Domaine Poulleau Pére & Files Côte de Beaune Les Mondes Rondes David Honig October 25, 2011 Tasting Notes Sweet cherries and funk on the nose. On the palate, rhubarb, cherries, and brown sugar lead. Strawberries and sage, with a light background of anise, appear on the mid-palate. Sage, mixed red fruits, vanilla, and brown sugar linger on a mid-length finish. Acids are high, tannins very smooth, together offering a wine for the cellar. All the different flavors are interesting, but they are disjointed, even conflicting. This may be a wine best judged a decade after bottling. It could be very nice, based upon promise, high acidity, smooth tannins, and depth of flavor. Drink with sage-rubbed pork loin.
