Pommard 2016

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Villages
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

With Volnay to the south and Beaune to the north, Pommard is situated on an east- and southeast-facing slope between 240 and 380 meters above sea level with a high-clay, calcareous soil. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, then undergo fermentation. After a long maceration, a proportion of the wine is set to age in French oak barrels. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

harvest note

2016 began with frost, resulting in smaller crops, but the smaller crop allowed for ripening well into September due to cool, dry, and sunny weather. While yields were low, excellent white wines were produced. The 2016 vintage is unfolding to be an amazing one.

tasting note

Pommard is often considered the most “masculine” Côte de Beaune red. This is a firm, full-bodied wine that is nevertheless exceptionally round and generous, with a fruity depth of character and earthy aromas and flavors.

food pairing

Pairs well with small game, complex beef dishes, pungent cheeses.
