Background
The “Clos des Ursulines”, a peaceful haven dotted with centuries-old pine trees, is located at the heart of Pommard. It is undoubtedly this tranquillity that once enchanted the nuns from the Ursuline convent who were the first owners of the estate. This almost 4-hectare (9.8 acre) “monopole” is located at the southern end of the Pommard appellation toward Volnay. Thanks to its unique terroir, this wine challenges the widely spread myth that Pommard wines are more “masculine”.
Winemaking
One of my personal favourite appallations , for those looking for a little more drive and energey then Pommard is for you, drinking well now and will age beautifully with a few more years of patience.
Tasting Notes
This Pommard "Clos des Ursulines" reveals a fruity nose redolent of cherry, blackcurrant and fig. Over the years these aromas will evolve toward notes of coffee and leather. Full and round on the palate with ripe tannins and rich, but not heavy, substance. This wine is powerful and well-structured yet remains subtle, elegant and almost "feminine" due to the vineyard’s proximity to Volnay. The finish is silky and velvety.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 16 and 17°C (60°F - 63°F). This wine may be laid down for 5 to 7 years or more.
Food Matches
Serve with exquisitely prepared red meats, feathered game and wine sauces.
