The 2018 Pommard Village is showing creditably in bottle, exhibiting aromas of spicy berry fruit and plums, cedar, and new oak. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy, and muscular, its generous core of fruit is framed by youthfully assertive tannins and succulent acids.
The 2014 Pommard Villages, which may include the deselected fruit from Pommard la Commaraine, has a sweet, juicy, and simple bouquet. The palate is sweet and supple, quite rounded, a little rustic with a chewy redcurrant and cranberry finish.
The 2013 Pommard appeared rather muted on the nose, and it was difficult to muster some fruit. The palate is better with supple tannins, but the acidity is quite sharp, and it feels a little attenuated on the finish.
The Pommard is a gorgeous village-level wine laced with silky red fruit, crushed flowers, spices, and mint. The higher-altitude location of the plots used for the Pommard gives the wine an amount of pure textural finesse that is highly unusual for a wine of this level. Soft, floral notes round out the finish.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
