New Red Burgundy! 1st time in Missouri!


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.

Château de Pommard's Clos Marey-Monge is a collection of microclimates and soil types. Comprised of seven connected plots, each has a different soil composition essential to growing superior Pinot Noir. Each plot is hand-harvested, fermented, and aged separately. Paul has overseen the final stages of their biodynamic conversion and now the vineyard is fully certified.

Château de Pommard Clos Marey-Monge Grands Esprits...$109.99
A unique single-plot expression within the walled Clos-Marey Monge vineyard, this rich, fleshy red highlights the spice and smoke of Pinot Noir sourced from iron-rich red-clay soils. Black-plum and red-cherry flavors are boldy concentrated, lifted by hints of violet perfume and a firm acidic spine. Anchored by fine-grained but densely packed tannins, the wine should improve through 2030. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
