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.
