Region Pommard

One of the most famous appellations in the region, Pommard is known for producing full-bodied, robust and tannic wines. The second biggest area by production after Beaune, approximatly 135 ha of vineyard area is Premier Cru of which Les Epenots and Les Rugiens are the most renowned.

The clay-heavy limestone of this zone gives unusual wines: they have a deep, red-black color and an explosive bouquet of blackcurrants, musk and game meat (hare). The palate is dominated by astringent tannins and highlighted by bright acidity, but the mouthfeel softens with age. These firm wines are amoung burgundy's most tannic and robust.

Winery DOMAINE DU COMTE ARMAND

Arguably the most famous producer in Pommard, the wines of Domaine du Comte Armand have since the mid-eighties undergone a significant qualitative transformation, first under the leadership of French Canadian winemaker Pascal Marchand and currently under the helm of Benjamin Leroux. For many years the Clos des Epeneaux was the sole wine made at the domaine. In 1994, further vineyards were acquired; Auxey-Duresses, Auxey-Duresses premier cru, Volnay and Volnay Fremiets. Today the domaine maintains a strong adherence to biodynamic viticulture.
