Pommard bottle

For centuries Pommard has been considered the typical Burgundy, deep red in color, powerfully aromatic, solid and trustworhty. The very name Pommard has a generous ring to it and fills the mouth as it fills the glass. Pommard was thought of as the flower of Burgundy wines, the wine to which all others were compared.

Pommard with its vineyards lies between Beaune and Volnay where the Côte de Beaune makes a slight turn towards Autun. These lans formerly belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy, to religious houses including the abbey of Cîteaux, or to old families such as the Marey-Monge family.

Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Beaune with just a bit more elegance as the fruit is slightly higher-toned. The palate impression is, not surprisingly, a bit firmer than that of the Beaune but this too is relatively accessible with slightly better depth and length on the more well-defined finish. This should benefit from a few years in the cellar if desired but it could also be drunk with pleasure now after 30 minutes in a decanter.
  • Winemaking

    Vinification in oak vats followed by maturing in barrels for 11 months, 30% new oak.

  • Nose

    Aromas of black fruit (blackberries), grilled almonds and light oak.

  • Palate

    The wine is rich and dense with good finesse. Powerfully structured with rounded tannins. A finely balanced wine.
