Located between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard is one of the most famous villages in the Côte de Beaune for its robust, tannic red wines.
SoilThe vines are planted in brown limestone based soil dating back to the Bathonian Age.
Grape variety100 % Pinot Noir.
VinificationVinification takes place in temperature-controlled open vats (28/30°C) with regular punching of the cap followed by 12 to 14 months ageing in oak barrels with 15% maximum new oak.
RobeGorgeous, brilliant ruby red in colour.
NoseVegetal first nose (forest undergrowth, mushroom) with toasted nuances and animal notes (leather).
PalateSmooth, well-integrated tannins and delectable, lasting flavour. A very elegant wine.
Serve withSavour this fine appellation with elaborately prepared red meats and game. Veal chops with porcini mushrooms and olives, caramelized spiced lamb shanks or haunch of wild boar with port would truly show this wine off. It is also a good match for most cheeses, including Délice de Bourgogne, Chaource or Cantal entre-deux.
