Chateau de Santenay Pommard Petit Clos Monopole 2016
The palate is gentle, well-structured with silky tannins. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced, focused and elegant. The fruit presence is beautiful and rich with a blend of fresh fruit.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Fine-boned Pommard of perfumed red berry aromas and crunchy, structured, ripe fruits palate with earthy undertone and elegant saline finish.
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.
