The vineyards of Pommard are located between Beaune and Volnay on soft
slopes. There are East/South-East oriented.
Pommard only produces red wines.
The Premier Cru Chaponnières is located next to Rugiens bas in the heart of the
village of Pommard.
Grapes are destemmed and fermented in open vats for about 2 weeks. The wine
is then aged in French oak barrels between 15 to 18 months.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
Nice ruby cherry color, very bright. Elegant nose like all the Pommard from the
Southern part of the village, soft spices and red berries also.
Elegant in the mouth, lively with a lot of energy.
The acidity is usually quite soft, tannins are round.
This Premier Cru is very accessible.
This wine can keep very well but can also be drunk 5 years after vintage.
