GEOLOGY The grapes come from the village of Pommard in the south of the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay.

Soil: limestone and a little clay. Southeast exposure.

100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

VINIFICATION Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put  in stainless steel thermoregulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries around three weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very softly in order to be very careful about the substance and in order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.

AGING The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (15% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The aging lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Pommard is bottled when the moon is down and when the day is fruit according to the lunar calendar.

TASTING NOTE This Pommard wine has a dark red color with intense and percussive aromas of black currant, musk and game. Acidity well-marked and a mellowness that only appears after a minimum of maturation. Well-marked acidity.  

FOOD PAIRING Game or various cheeses.
