Pommard 1er cru "Les Grands Epenots"

65 years old

The grapes come from the "Les Grands Epenots” plot, from the village of Pommard in the south of the Côte de Beaune. Soil : limestone and a little clay. Strong slope. 100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed, (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (20% of new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Pommard "Les Grands Epenots” is bottled when the moon is down and when the day is fruit according to the lunar calendar.

The Pommard 1er Cru "Les Grands Epenots” wine has a dark red colour with intense aromas of blackcurrant. Taste dominated by astringency thanks to well-marked acidity and a mellowness that only appears after a minimum of maturation.

Elegant wine with notes of small red berries. The palate is opulent and complex.
