Pommard

Pinot Noir
Description

The vineyards of Pommard are located between Beaune and Volnay, stretching across either side of a huge valley and covering a surface area of approx. 500 acres. The grapes for this Pommard come from a vineyard located halfway up the slope where the soil is composed of Oxfordian limestone marls mixed with red clay.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A crystal, clear, cherry red.

Aroma: 

Complex and powerful, predominantly fruity (black fruits). Oaky with scents of woodland undergrowth and spices.

Palate: 

Rich and concentrated, with a great finesse. Full-bodied with mellow tannins. A wonderfully well-balanced wine.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage was born in pain: with a long winter and gloomy spring weather conditions have greatly complicated the work in the vineyard and decreased yields (coulure and millerandage, hail damage, disease). White wines are generally fruity and balanced, with notes of citrus on the nose. They display a beautiful structure that combines vivacity and freshness.
