About this wine:
The beautiful dark ruby color leads us to think this is a rich wine. The nose confirms this, as one discovers greedy black fruit and spice aromas, backed up by woody and smoky notes. On the palate, this wine proves to be powerful, with quite present, well blended tannins. As on the nose, we find nice woody notes from being raised in oak. The beautiful structure and big rich aromas of this Pommard are the proof of good cellaring potential.
The hand - picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration before being vinified. For the duration of the 15 - 18 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 in general one third of the cuvee. The barrels come from high - quality barrel maker s and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast.
