The village of Pommard, neighbouring Beaune, is among the most famous of Côte de Beaune. It was in Pommard in 1289, that one of the oldest French brotherhoods ‘ La Confrérie du Saint Sacrement’ saw the day. The vineyards, overflowing with history, have been famous beyond our borders for a very long time.

The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration before being vinified. For the duration of the 18-20 day vatting period, the wine is kept at low temperature.
It is then matured in oak barrels for 14 to 16 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The proportion of new oak, which is susceptible to variations according to the vintage, represents on average two thirds of the cuvée. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.

The 2007 vintage gives us a Pommard "Vaumuriens" which is a very beautiful dark red colour, with shades of garnet or almost black. The nose is powerful with aromas of very ripe red and black fruits and grilled mocha. On the palate, the tannins are present without dominating and the wood is discreet. It's a wine that can be tasted now but has good ageing potential.
