95 Point Red Burgundy New to STL


Check out the huge press for this red Burgundy! The famed Chateau lays claim the largest Monopole in Burgundy and is a 1st timer to STL! 

With its array of celebrated sun-soaked vineyards and captivating sights, the village of Pommard is surrounded by ageless, timeless beauty. At it’s heart, is Château de Pommard, a historic estate established in the early 18th century. The estate’s walled Clos Marey-Monge is a 20 hectare monopole and a UNESCO heritage protected Burgundy climat, cultivating century-old vines. The distinct, but complementary, terroirs are farmed biodynamically, naturally fermented, and aged separately, creating wines of complexity, power and grace.

Known for giving body and structure to our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole, our Grands Esprits cuvée is a Pommard of great quality, appreciable as such. With its ruby, violet-tinted color and its expressive nose marked by aromas of ripe black fruit, fresh rose and sweet spices, it stands out as a generous and robust wine. A long and mineral finish brings a touch of elegance to this complex vintage. 20 months in 20% new French oak barrels - winery notes

Château de Pommard Clos Marey-Monge Grands Espirits...$109.99
The Grands Esprits has the highest limestone content of all the plots of Clos Marey-Monge and this supple, silky Pinot Noir with vibrant acidity and firm, angular tannins is a fantastic representation of this terroir. Red cherry and raspberry flavors are intensely ripe yet zesty, accented by tangs of tart blood orange and a deep granitic undertone. Approachable young, the wine is likely to improve through 2035 and hold further still. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
