Production area

Located in the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard marks the spot where the “Côte” sinks slightly toward Autun. The lower portion is made up of ancient alluvial deposits while the mid-slope region consists of clay-limestone soils that are well-drained due to gravel made up of rocky debris. Higher still, Oxfordian (Jurassic) marls along with brown calcic and limestone soils can be found. Iron oxide gives a reddish hue to the soil in certain areas. Eastern and souther exposure. Altitude : between 250 and 330 metres.


The best climates classified as Pommard Premier Cru are located on the belly of the slope, with a good limestone content of about 50 centimeters thick. The roots can thus reach the limestone mother rock which is more or less altered and riddled with numerous cracks which ensure an excellent natural drainage.

The climate "Les Poutures" is located very close to the village and means pastures, where the animals of the village could come.


100% Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes

Color: Deep red, dark purple ruby.
Bouquet: Open on coffee notes then, after aeration, fruity notes are expressed.
Palate: Supple attack, round and silky, balanced by present tannins without hardness underlined by a beautiful freshness, length on a fruity final. Wine with a lot of elegance!

Vinification and maturing

The grapes were handpicked and manually sorted as soon as they arrived at the winery. Vinification took place in wooden vats and the wine was aged in oak barrels for about 14 months (with about 25% new oak).

Food and wine pairing

Perfect with beefsteak, furred or feathered game, stewed poultry and cheeses like Epoisses, l'ami du Chambertin, Nuits d'Or or Comté.
