Pommard “Les Petits Noizons”

Pommard “Les Petits Noizons” bottle

In the local dialect the original name, En Noyons, meant a place where walnut trees were found. Owned in the 13th century by Alix de Vergy, duchess of Burgundy, Pommard passed into the hands of the Archbishops of Lyon, then a ducal estate, and finally to Burgundian noble families.

The vines themselves are intimately linked with the history of Burgundy, as it was the monks of the Abbeys of Saint-Bénigne at Dijon, and Cîteaux, and the knights of Saint John of Jerusalem who surveyed the harvests. Another well-known owner was Gaspard Monge, inventor of descriptive geometry and a senior official of the Empire, whose daughter married a local château-owner, Nicolas-Joseph Marey.

A well-defined red, with cherry, strawberry, sandalwood and mineral flavors fused to a linear frame. Gaining support from lively acidity and dense tannins, this feels balanced overall, with a resonant aftertaste. Best from 2026 through 2045. - Bruce Sanderson
