  • Pommard is known the world over for its opulent red wines. Out of the 120 hectares of premiers crus in Pommard, "les Arvelets" only constitutes 8 hectares. The name of this parcel speaks for itself: it is land cultivated at the bottom of a small valley. Situated on a slope at about 270m above sea-level, this parcel faces directly south and sits on clay-limestone soils. The rich nature of this soil explains the excellence of this wine.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Deep red in colour this Pommard exhales expressive aromas of blackberry, plum and kirsch with a note of roasted coffee due to the barrel-ageing. Powerful in the mouth however the tannins are still present but well integrated. The oak is very pleasant. Tasted November 2010.

    Duck confit - beef "Bourguignon" - mature cheeses
