Côte de Beaune
The clayey calcareous soil gives the wine a deep red-black colour and an intense bouquet of red fruits, musk and game meat as soon as the wine reaches a certain level of maturity.
The village of Pommard is situated between Volnay to the South and Beaune to the North. Pommard is on a slope, between 240 and 380 metres, facing east or south-east.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
The fermentation takes place in tanks during 3-4 weeks, after which the wine is aged in barrel for 12-15 months before being bottled.
