Tasting Note:

A fully destemmed cuvee, this is high-toned and really quite floral on the nose, with fine red fruit aromas picked out in great detail. A lovely translucency pervades this the palate, but being Pommard, it’s not short of depth and power too. Drinking beautifully (in 2022), this remains primary but is just starting to spread its wings. A great example of the increasingly impressive output of this underappreciated village. The Pommard VV comes from a blend of three plots in Pommard, from vines planted in the 1930s and 1940s. Half of the cuvee hails from Les Cras whose red clay and chalk soils provide structure, while the other half comes from Les Vignots and La Chaniere – plots with more limestone in the soils that sit higher up the slope and are as such cooler, providing a lifted, high toned element.
