The Pommard wine and natural corks

Philippe Pacalet (Cote de Beaune) write :

The wine will get more fleshy with time. He tells us about the quality of the corks, which is important. He uses catalan corks, which are good, hard corks. 49 mm long. Cost is 40-50 Euro cents each . Bottle's cost is comparatively much lower, about 27 cents .
__4 Pommard 2004, from a cask. Also some gas remaining. As he does not force the wine with temperature control or external yeast, the wine quietly follows its own maturation pace. He says, no need to be anxious, the work bring results, sooner or later.
