What experts say  
  
93 "Wooden nose of cherry and prune jam. An overwhelming 1er Cru due to its multiple aromas, its generosity and complexity, its fine tannins. Will become a truly big wine in the future."
  
  
 
86-88 "The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Le Clos des Boucherottes is the domaine’s 1.83-hectare monopole acquired in 1908, located just below Clos des Mouches on the other side of the appellation boundary. The vines here are 24-years old. Here, the aromatics veer towards the red fruit profile, a mixture of crushed strawberry and black currant aromas with the oak nicely integrated in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip on the entry. The tannins have more finesse than the village crus and it feels fresher, more approachable and more refined towards the grainy finish. Drink this over the next 8-10 years."
