While this is a structured wine, it also has a wonderful series of perfumed aromas and ripe, full-bodied fruits. The Commaraine vineyard, with its deep and well-drained soil, produces the classic dense wine of Pommard while also allowing for a more fruity, accessible style when young. But best to drink this from 2019.

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.
