Wine of Pommard appellation
A village appellation in the Côte de Beaune (Côte-d'Or) established in 1936, Pommard is entirely contained within the village of the same name. The lovely town of Pommard lies between Beaune and Volnay, just at the point where the vine-covered hillside turns slightly to the west. Since the Middle Ages Pommard has been considered “the flower of wines” from the area around Beaune: it can be considered the reference point for Burgundy wines. There are 28 climats (vineyard sites) classified Pommard Premier Cru, the most celebrated of which are undoubtedly Les Rugiens and Les Epenots 

The vineyards of Pommard and Pommard Premier Cru sit between 250 and 330 meters (820 to 1,083 feet) of altitude and face east and south. The lower vineyards are on a bedrock of ancient alluvium; the mid-slope is a clay-limestone soil that drains well thanks to rock cuttings; and the highest vineyards sit on Oxfordian marl, brown calcareous soil, and brown limestone. 

Pommard exclusively produces red wines made from the Pinot Noir grape. In the 19th century it was famous for its insistence and virility, but in truth the terroirs here, combined with careful vinifications and judicious aging, give a much more nuanced, delicate wine. Pommard wines are best after some aging, which allows them to open up. Some of the best Pommards come from estates like Domaine Roger Belland, Domaine de Courcel, and Domaine Henri et Gilles Buisson, and some of the greatest examples of Pommard Premier Cru are offered by Domaine Leroy, Maison Bouchard Père et Fils, Maison Verget, and Louis Jadot.
