Pommard 1er Cru

"Les Charmots"



The same type of Burgundy wine for several centuries: red, colourful, fragrant, decisive and loyal. Pommard: This generous name sounds good. He just fills the glass and mouth. Located on the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard, its wines and its beautiful residences mark the place where the coast slopes gently towards Autun. The land here once belonged to the dukes of Burgundy, to religious institutions including the abbey of Cîteaux, and to ancient families such as the Marey-Monge... From the Middle Ages, Pommard was seen as "the flower of Beaune wines". It is the reference wine…
Exclusively a red from Pinot Noir. The Denomination of Controlled Origin was recognized in 1936, one of the first.
Presentation :
Grape variety: Pinot Noir.
Alcohol content of our wines: 13°.
In the lower part, old alluvium, therefore halfway up the hillside, the clayey-limestone soils are well drained thanks to a scree of rocky debris. Going further up we find Oxford marl (Jurassic), brown calcic and brown calcareous soils. Iron oxide sometimes reddens the earth. Eastern and southern exposures. Altitude: between 250 and 330 metres.
Vinification and ageing:
Manual collection
Destemming-crushing: 100%
Cooking time: 15 to 18 days
Aging in barrels (Vosges & Allier) for 14-15 months, 20 to 30% new barrels
We must beware of pre-packaged ideas: the fame of Pommard in the 19th century earned it the image of an insistent and virile wine. In reality, the terroirs, the vinifications and the age blur this portrait to offer a wine full of sensitivity. Intense red, dark ruby ​​purple, her dress with mauve flashes recalls the words of Victor Hugo: "It's the fight of day and night!"
Aromas of blackberry, blueberry or currant, cherry stone, ripe plum. A feline and wild evolution is not uncommon over time. Maturity directs it towards leather, chocolate, pepper. A wine to be left to age a little so that it opens up completely: round structure, delicate and decisive structure, fruity on the palate, the tannic paste then assumes its roundness. Rich ? Certainly.
This illustrious representative of the Côte de Beaune loves wild meats, as its tannins are massive and dense. Furred and feathered game, braised or roasted, will find an essential partner in the Pommard. Steaks of beef, lamb or stewed poultry will also appreciate the compact texture of its tannins and concentrated aromas. He naturally appreciates the company of cheeses with developed flavors: Époisses, Langres, Soumaintrain but also Comté.
Service temperature: from 14 to 16°C.
