Pommard 1er Cru "Les Chaponnières"
Côte de Beaune
AOC Premier Cru
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.
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.
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.
