AOP Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru

Château de Pommard 2013

€3400 Flacon de 10cl

Of all of Burgundy’s 33 Grand Crus, this Bonnes-Mares is one of the most accomplished expressions of Pinot Noir. This wine’s near-cherry red color is exceptionally intense for a Burgundy; the nose is powerful too, and amazingly elegant, with all the quintessential Burgundy aromas: peony, violet, cherry, strawberry... The palate of this Grand Cru is surprisingly powerful. It bursts with flavor and the combination of tannin, intensity, freshness and fruitiness is superb.

Winemaker

Emmanuel Sala

After a nine year search for a place to make fine wine in France, the Carabello-Baum family, from San Francisco made Château de Pommard their home. Château de Pommard is one of Burgundy’s most iconic estates and with 20 hectares of vineyards is also the owner of the largest Burgundy monopole (appellation controlled by a single vineyard). Working in harmony with nature and dedication to winemaking are at the core of the estate’s approach. The Carabello-Baum family’s desire is to ‘let mother nature do the talking’ and ‘to transform Château de Pommard into something that transcends a Burgundy winery, but also retains its core values and deep Burgundian roots’.
