Pommard is one of the most famous appellations of the Côte de Beaune and is known for its red wines. The brownish-red soil, rich in hard limestone from the foothills produces some of the most tannic and robust wines in Burgundy (it is often said that these are masculine wines).The grapes are handpicked in 25-kg crates, sorted once they arrive at the winery and are gravity-fed into tanks. Maceration and fermentation lasts for 20 to 28 days in conical oak vats.
Beautiful ruby colour with cherry-red nuances. The primary nose has delicate smoky and woody notes which move on to fruity notes of lightly spiced raspberry and plum. The mouth is pleasantly supple with noticeable but well-blended tannins. Pleasant minerality on a good structure of plum and a lovely aromatic persistence. Ideal for accompanying finely-prepared tender red meat dishes, feathered game and dishes cooked in wine sauce, veal cutlets with shallots, a partridge terrine and cheeses. Serve at 16°C - 17°C and drink now or lay for 2 to 4 years or more.
