The nose is typical of Lejeune wines, sweetly perfumed with plenty of red berry flavours, the palate is dense and balanced with ripe raspberry, hints of vanillin and oak, ending with more rich fruit flavours and a youthful tannic grip. Pommard, is one of Red Burgundy’s most famous names, located between Beaune and Volnay, it is generous in style and evocative of an iconic Burgundy vineyard.
François Jullien de Pommerol, former professor of the wine school in Beaune (Lycée Viticole), is the owner of this 6.7 ha Domaine, which is in organic conversion. The objective here is to fashion Pommard in the traditional style, with a solid potential for cellaring and aging. This is a wine for someone who has an affinity for Red Burgundy.
This can be drunk now or aged for 10 years. Make sure you lie it sideways in a dark place with a consistent temperature if you intend on keeping it for a couple of years.
