Located in the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard, its prestigious crus and its beautiful homes mark the place where the vineyards tilts slightly towards the Autun region.
Once upon a time this land belonged to the dukes of Burgundy, to religious institutions including the abbey of Cîteaux, and to old, noble families. But from the Middle Ages, Pommard soon became one of the most respected wine regions in Beaune appellation. The sultry red Pinot Noir from the wineries of Pommard almost became a reference wine for the other appellations.

Though popularly, from the nineteenth century, the wines of Pommard were known to be strong and demanding flavours, the reality is quite different. Thanks to the intricate terroir, vinification process and ageing the strong portraitof the wine is nuanced to offer this wine a rich sensitivity. Deep red, dark purple ruby, its purple-hued appearance embraces the aromas of blackberry, blueberry or gooseberry, cherry core and ripe plum. The maturity directs it towards aromas of leather, chocolate and pepper. This is definitely a wine you can let age before opening to truly capture the fruitiness on the palate and the tannic lambskin giving it roundness.
