Wine Characteristics :
Beware of preconceived notions! The fame of Pommard in the 19th century earned it the image of a wine that is both forceful and virile. In reality, time, terroir and methods of vinification have all combined to create a more subtle reality, a wine that is both richer and more sensitive. Its colour is the deep, dark red with mauve highlights which caused Victor Hugo to speak of it as “night in combat with day”. Its aromas are redolent of blackberry, bilberry, or gooseberry, cherry pit and ripe plum. Often, wild and feline notes develop with age. At full maturity, it tends towards leather, chocolate and pepper.
It needs to be given time to open up to its fullest extent and to display its mouth-filling texture, its firm but delicate structure, its fruit-filled mouth, and its chewy tannins, which by then will be properly smoothed down. A “rich” wine? Certainly.
For centuries Pommard has been considered the typical Bourgogne: deep red in colour, powerfully aromatic, solid and trustworthy. The very name Pommard has a generous ring to it and fills the mouth as it fills the glass. Pommard with its smiling vineyards lies between Beaune and Volnay where the Côte de
Beaune makes a slight turn towards Autun. These lands formerly belonged to the Dukes of Bourgogne, to religious houses including the abbey of Cîteaux, or to old families such as the Marey-Monge family. As early as the Middle Ages, Pommard was thought of as the flower of Bourgogne wines - the wine to which all others were compared. The appellation, one of the first AOC to be so designated (1936), grows only red wines from the Pinot Noir grape.
On the lower ground the soil is ancient alluvium. Mid-slope, the clay-limestone soils are well drained thanks to the inclusion of rock debris. Higher still are Jurassic (Oxfordian) marls, brown calcic soils, and brown limestone soils. In places, the soil is reddened by the presence of iron. Exposure: south or east.
Vintage description 1996 Burgundy:
This great vintage is also characterised by a more abundant harvest than the last few years. Thanks to the hot, dry weather, flowering at the beginning of June was very quick. The contrasting weather in the summer caused a few worries as to how well the grapes would ripen. Fortunately September was exceptionally dry and bright which brought on an early and sunny harvest. The red wines have a lovely pronounced colour. The nose is concentrated and very fruity. The wines are well-structured on the palate with fine tannins. The wine's fruit and balance make it very harmonious already.
