Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens"
Domaine du Pavillon
Côte de Beaune
AOC Premier Cru
Pommard is one of the most famous appellations of the Côte de Beaune and is known for its red wines. The limestone-rich, brownish-red soil from the foothills produces some of the most tannic and robust wines in Burgundy. Indeed, they are more powerful than their Beaune neighbours and it is often said that these are more "masculine" wines. The "Les Rugiens" Premier Cru is located at the south of the commune. The dominating red colour of the soil may be the origin of the name of this vineyard plot ("rouge"= red in French).
The nose of our Pommard Premier Cru "Les Rugiens" is fine yet powerful with predominant scents of red fruit followed by very well integrated notes of smoky oak. This wine boasts lovely length, nice density and classy tannins.
Ideal for accompanying finely prepared tender cuts of red meat, feathered game and dishes served with a wine sauce.
