Château de Pommard
Burgundy, France

Ruby, violet-tinted color. Expressive nose with aromas of ripe black fruit, rose and sweet spices. A generous and robust wine. Long and mineral finish brings a touch of elegance to this complex cuvée. Known for giving body and structure to Pommard’s Clos Marey-Monge Monopole, the Grands Esprits plot makes Pommard of great quality and structure. The 4.81-hectare plot of Grands Esprits has large, round, rocky, limestone-rich soils planted between 1970 and 1980. It produces a straight Pinot Noir with firm tannins and potential for long aging. Occupying almost one-quarter of our vineyard’s overall area, the 220 rows of Grands Esprits is the most calcareous area in the Clos Marey-Monge. Hand-harvested organic grapes, hand-sorted on a vibrating table. 20% whole-cluster. Placed into stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity flow. Weeks-long maceration, minimal pumping-over and punching-down. Pressing in pneumatic press. Aged 18 months in 25% new French oak barrels on fine lees. 


95 Points, Wine Enthusiast

The Grands Esprits has the highest limestone content of all the plots of Clos Marey-Monge and this supple, silky Pinot Noir with vibrant acidity and firm, angular tannins is a fantastic representation of this terroir. Red cherry and raspberry flavors are intensely ripe yet zesty, accented by tangs of tart blood orange and a deep granitic undertone. Approachable young, the wine is likely to improve through 2035 and hold further still.
