Winemaker Notes

The name of this wine refers to the thorny bushes that used to thrive freely on the vineyard land. A deep, brilliant ruby hue, it has aromas of ripe black fruits and baking spices. Fruit -forward and balanced this light-bodied wine has flavors of ripe black fruit, clove and floral with high acidity.

Pairs best with beef Bourguignon, poultry dishes or mature cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epenots from Chateau de Meursault has a slight reduction on the nose, but there is some decent mulberry and redcurrant fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, soft and quite fleshy, almost Volnay-like in style but very appealing and easier drinking than its peers. It seems to coalesce nicely in the mouth, saline and focused towards the finish that has very good substance. This is a well-crafted Pommard given the difficulty of the season and another impressive wine from the fast-improving Château de Meursault.

The fiefdom of Foulot Mill, that was later to become Chateau de Meursault, was created in the 11th century, during the reign of Robert the 1st. From 12th to 16th centuries, the owners of the fiefdom changed several times due to the struggle between the Duchy of Burgundy and the King of France. Starting from the 17th century, the Blancheton, the Serre, the Boisseaux and nowadays the Halley families succeeded each other – all of them having the same ambition of developing the reputation of Chateau de Meursault and its wines.

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Representing some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot Noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Côte de Beaune—along with Volnay—that is recognized for its impressive Pinot Noir. While it can’t boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.

Les Pézerolles, Les Épenots, Clos des Épeneaux, Les Chanlins, Les Jarolières, Les Fremiers and particularly Les Rugiens are among the most outstanding Premiers Crus.

The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand some time in the bottle to reach their peak.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
