Pommard is one of the most famous villages in the Côte de Beaune. The 22.2 acre Premier Cru vineyard “Les Charmots” is located just north of the village. Its name comes from the “charmes” or hornbeam trees that once grew there. This vineyard produces magnificent Pinot Noir.

The wine is full of acidity — crisp and tight. With firm tannins to back up the red-currant fruit, it is going to take time to open up. Then it will become a rich serious wine.
  • Winemaking

    Fermentation in wooden vats and matured in oak barrels for 12 months (40% new oak).

  • Nose

    Black fruit with a touch of dried flowers, finishing with light spice and menthol which gives a fine freshness.

  • Palate

    A rich, dense structure. There are tannins apparent which are balanced by mellowness when tasting. The finish is long and fruit-dominant.
