Region: Pommard – Burgundy, FRA
Varieties: Pinot Noir
Pommard’s reputation for producing deeply-coloured, powerful wines which age gracefully, is built upon the Rugiens vineyard. Thierry’s 65 years old vines sit high up on the slope above the village and enjoy an east/ southeast exposure. Difficult weather reduced the yields throughout the region in 2012, but the fruit that remained was in great condition and the resulting wines were lovely.
