Pommard is for many the most familiar Burgundy appellation. The village itself lies approximately 2 miles south of Beaune, and the total appellation is fairly extensive, covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic. This wine requires a number of years to reveal itself.

Average vine age: 30 years. Soil: Clay and limestone.

Traditional fermentation in open vats.

10 to 12 months ageing in oak barrels, 15% new.

Food pairing

Duck confit - beef "Bourguignon" - mature cheeses.
