Location
Located between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard is one of the most famous villages in the Côte de Beaune and is known for some of Burgundy’s most robust, tannic red wines.
Soil The vines in the Clos Micault plot grow in calcic brown soil overlying limestone scree at the top of the ancient alluvial fan called La Vandaine, which makes the soil very stony. The exposure is east and southeast.
Grape variety 100 % Pinot Noir.
Vinification Traditional Burgundian vinification in open vats with long maceration and punching of the cap. Aged in oak barrels (25 to 30% new oak) for 14 to 16 months to lend structure and complexity to the wine.
Robe Beautiful deep ruby in colour with raspberry coloured tinges.
Nose Cooked red fruit (raspberry jam) with some roasted notes (coffee).
Palate Both powerful and elegant, this wine boasts lovely structure with delicate tannins and lasting flavours.
Serve with Try this wine with choice cuts of meat such as roast beef with oyster mushrooms and zucchini flan, braised lamb, or stewed poultry or game. As for cheese, pair it with full-flavoured varieties such as Munster or extra-aged Mimolette.
Serve at 15 to 16°C.
Cellaring potential From 3 to 5 years
