Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens"

Domaine du Pavillon


Côte de Beaune


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Pommard is one of the most renowned villages in the Côte de Beaune and produces exclusively red wines. The reddish brown soil contains a high proportion of limestone from the piedmont and yields some of Burgundy's most tannic and robust wines.
The "Rugiens" Premier Cru Climat lies south of the village. The red ("rouge") colour of the soil may have given it its name.


The complex nose is redolent of intense aromas of red fruit (cherry, raspberry...) combined with well-integrated nuances of oak and smoke. On the palate, this dense, rich wine is balanced by a structure built on sophisticated tannins. A high-class Pommard that boasts remarkable length.

Food/wine pairing

Taste this wine with roasted or stewed meats (beef, duck, pork, game), or with medium to mature cheeses.
Recipe suggestion: beef tenderloin with sauce Périgueux (truffle and foie gras sauce)
