Sub Region: Cote de Beaune
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
£60.75 Inc. VAT
The village of Pommard, neighbouring Beaune, is one of the most famous of Côte de Beaune. This climat, which is amongst Pommard’s finest, is separated into two parts. The plot that Domaine Faiveley acquired in 2007 is situated in ‘les Rugiens Hauts’, which is the most interesting part in terms of quality.
A beautiful dark ruby colour. The nose gives off black fruit and spice aromas with woody and smoky notes. On first tasting, this wine shows itself to be powerful on the palate with tannins quite present but well blended in. As on the nose, we find pleasant woody notes from being raised in oak.
This wine has fine structure and good long-lasting aromas and flavours, which give it interesting cellaring potential.
