  • Pommard is for many, the most familiar Burgundy appellation. The village itself lies approximately four kilometres south of Beaune, and the total appellation is fairly extensive, covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic. This wine requires a number of years to reveal itself.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Our Pommard 2017 has a pretty ruby color which reveals a discret nose with cherry and nutmeg. The mouth is ample, round and gives the feeling of bitting into cherries. There is a remarkable tannic final.

Press review
    • Pommard 2021 - Wine Spectator - 90/100

      Tight out of the gate, this red exhibits density and tension underneath the cherry, plum, vegetal and earth notes. Solidly built, with fine intensity and length. Best from 2026 through 2038. (USA, January 2024)

    • Pommard 2020 - Wine Enthusiast - 91/100

      A balanced expression with savory aromas of picked mushroom, wild thyme come to the forefront followed by a layer of juicy blackberry. Round tannins provide texture and cling onto notes of red cherry skin, a touch of cassis, black pepper corn and tossed earth which persist through its delicate black tea leaf  finish. (February 2024, USA)

    • Pommard 2018 - 93 pts - Wine Spectator May 2021

      A spicy version, revealing aromas of sandalwood and incense as well as vanilla framing the cherry and currant fruit. It tightens up, turning compact and crisp, on the finish, where a mineral element emerges. Best from 2025 through 2042.— BS

    • Pommard 2012 - - April 2014 - 90/100A discreet but not invisible application of wood frames the ripe dark berry fruit and damp earth aromas. There is solid density to the ripe and muscular flavors where the supporting tannins are phenolically mature, all wrapped in a robust, rustic and lingering finish. This will require a few years of cellar time to be approachable. By Allen Meadows (USA)
    • Pommard 2011 - Wine Spectator - June 2014 - 90/100A refined version, evoking cherry, strawberry and spice flavors, with a touch of mineral. Harmonious and approachable now, though this should improve with moderate aging. Best from 2015through 2024. By Bruce Sanderson (USA)
    • Pommard 2010 - Wine Spectator Online USA - October 2013 - 89/100Bright cherry flavors holds court in this dense, slightly square red. Shows purity and balance as the finish plays out. Slightly dry, but long. Best from 2015 through 2023.
    • Pommard 2008 - My Wine And More - May 2013 - 88/100Bright ruby, garnet rim. Red berries, some leafy and slightly earthy notes, slightly scented. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, elegant and fruity, mineraly finish, drinking beautifully now, refreshing Pommard. Quite long.
    • Pommard 2008 - Wine Spectator - February 2011 - 88/100Light and elegant, boasting cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. This is balanced, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2015.
    • Pommard 2007 - Wine Spectator Online - 2010 - 84/100A core of cherry fruit is wrapped in a cloak of firm tannins. This is just balanced on the dry, tannic side, so age a little and enjoy with a braised beef dish. Best from 2011 through 2014. 980 cases made. By Bruce Sanderson, USA.
    • 2006 Pommard – Burghound – April 2008 - 87 points :An expressive red pinot fruit nose displays obvious earth and underbrush nuances that continue onto the supple, attractive and sweet flavors that firm up quickly on the delicious and round finish. This should drink well on the early side. 87/2010+
    • 2004 Pommard - - April 2006 - 85-87 points :A notably ripe cassis and extract of raspberry-infused nose leads to round, supple, frank and direct flavors that posses just enough phenolic maturity to avoid astringency, all wrapped in a touch of finishing wood.
    • 2003 Pommard - - April 2005 - 86 points :Very ripe but not roasted red pinot fruit, mineral and a slight animale note combine with very rich, round and earthy medium full flavors that are delicious, serious and reasonably fresh. This is a relatively masculine wine as it's robust but not coarse with good muscle and punch on the persistent finish. In short, good if not elegant. 86/2009+
