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.

Origins

Located on a gentle south-eastern facing slope, this is considered to be the softest of Pommard wines.

Varietal

100% Pinot Noir

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 14 months (25% new oak).

Tasting notes

COLOUR : Beautiful, deep ruby in colour.
NOSE : Aromas of black fruits.
PALATE : Round texture, delicate structure. The tannins will require a few years of bottle ageing.
