Côte de Beaune
Pommard is one of the most famous appellations of the Côte de Beaune and is known for its red wines. The brownish-red soil, rich in hard limestone 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 "masculine" wines.
The first nose features delicate notes of smoke and oak, which move on to fruity aromas of raspberry and plum with a touch of spice. The palate is pleasingly supple with bold but well-integrated tannins. Lovely minerality underscored by flavours of plum and remarkable aromatic length.
Ideal for accompanying finely prepared tender red meat dishes, feathered game and dishes cooked in wine sauce, or delicate cheeses.
