Pommard 1er Cru "Les Chaponnières"

Situation

Côte de Beaune

Level

AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Pommard has a terroir well suited for red wines. Its wines are among Burgundy’s most robust and tannic. They are more powerful than wines from neighbouring Beaune and Volnay. The Premier Cru Les Chaponnières lies adjacent to the village of Pommard, at the heart of the appellation, where the slopes are gentle and the vines - exclusively Pinot Noir - face east and slightly south. "Chaponnières" lies just below "Les Rugiens Bas." But, as always in Burgundy, proximity is not necessarily synonymous with similarity.

Tasting

With its delicate nose, it offers aromas of berries, enhanced by soft, spicy notes. The palate is structured and elegant with well-integrated tannins. A discrete hint of oak complements this wine’s lovely aromatic length.

Food/wine pairing

Pair with finely cooked red meat dishes, feathered game, dishes in red wine sauce, even slightly spicy dishes. It also goes well with classic cheeses.

Serving and keeping

Serve between 16 and 17°C (60°F - 63°F)
This wine may be laid down for 5 to 10 years or more.
