Domaine Lucien Boillot Pommard 1er Cru Les Fremiers 2007 sees aromas of dried plums and cherries, mingle with wafts of tobacco and Asian spices. Sappy and concentrated on the palate, with a mineral stoniness and suggestions of roasted red meats adding to the complexity. This really stains the palate and finishes with a fruit cake-like sense of density and spice, yet without seeming heavy.

Les Frémiers is a premier cru climat of the Pommard appellation in the Côte De Beaune. Wines made from grapes grown within the climat may claim the Pommard premier cru title and also cite the Les Frémiers name on their labels.
Les Frémiers is part of the same lieu-dit (a French term for a geographical area with a traditional name) as the Fremiets climat in neighbouring Volnay. The two vineyards have identical pronunciations, but are quite capable of producing distinct styles of wine, the Pommard being heavier and more rustic, the Volnay being lighter and more restrained.
