In the local dialect the original name, En Noyons, meant a place where walnut trees were found. Owned in the 13th century by Alix de Vergy, duchess of Burgundy, Pommard passed into the hands of the Archbishops of Lyon, then a ducal estate, and finally to Burgundian noble families. The vines themselves are intimately linked with the history of Burgundy, as it was the monks of the Abbeys of Saint-Bénigne at Dijon, and Cîteaux, and the knights of Saint John of Jerusalem who surveyed the harvests. Another well-known owner was Gaspard Monge, inventor of descriptive geometry and a senior official of the Empire, whose daughter married a local château-owner, Nicolas-Joseph Marey.

Sophisticated, velvety mouth rich with flavors of red fruit.

Vintage Notes: 

This large, south-facing parcel covering more than one hectare was replanted between 1985 and 1989. This sun-drenched vineyard, ideally situated at the top of the hillside, benefits from an excellent reflection of heat onto the grapes. The Petits Noizons vines grow in a very pebbly, soil, (chalky and often alluvial), of great depth. The results are a relatively powerful wine, with good structure and high quality.
