Appellation Pommard

The crus of Pommard are the very symbol of Burgundy's red wines.

Pommard is the sonorous, generous and evocative name of an iconic Burgundy village and vineyard. Situated between Beaune and Volnay, the crus of Pommard are the very symbol of Burgundy red wines, and since the Middle Ages, a benchmark, “La Fleur des vins du Beaunois”.

Pommard: exclusively Pinot Noir

The first slopes of Pommard can be seen a few kilometers southwest of Beaune. A mosaic of plots and clos surround a plush, charming village named after the ancient goddess of gardens, Pomona. In a Côte de Beaune renowned for its great white wines,Pommard stands out as an exception, with wines made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.

Pommard: Ferrari or Aston Martin?

Within this 321-hectare appellation, it’s a veritable haute couture show, a collection of 28 premier crus that make up an extraordinary cellar book. To the eye, this wine has a deep red color, on the nose, its bouquet expresses aromas of blueberry, redcurrant that evolve into notes of chocolate and leather. On the palate, Pommard is a straightforward, loyal wine, with firm, powerful tannins. As in any family, the appellation boasts renowned personalities, all contrasting as befits a Burgundy vineyard.

“The Rugiens, powerful, structured wines to the south of the village, conjure up images of a young man with the sturdy shoulders of a rugby player driving a powerful Ferrari, while the silky, feminine Epenots to the north evoke the elegance of a young golfer at the wheel of an Aston Martin.

A Pommard winemaker expresses the character of these wines in her own way.
