Pommard makes reds. If you were to walk the vineyards of the Premier Crus, you’d guess this by simply looking at the soil. It’s red, too. These Pinot Noirs are known for their power and edge. Deep color and firm tannins characterize Pommard, unlike most other Côte de Beaune. The vigor of these wines can make them foursquare, but generous though never plump fruit bolsters top wines. Black cherry and black plum overlay red fruits here, which otherwise dominate Côte de Beaune Pinot.
