Denis Carre Pommard

£39.50

Soft, sweet cherry and cranberry pop on the nose with hints of baking spices. Light at first but builds in the mouth, the red fruit continues with cherry and raspberry ending up with dried raisin and structured tannins.

Pommard, along with Chablis, has the privilege of figuring among the most renowned Burgundy appellations. Victor Hugo was particularly fond of Pommard, which grows in clay-limestone ferruginous soil that produces a well-structured, tannic wine, with multiple aromas evoking blackcurrant, plum, pepper and leather. Designed for a long cellaring, this wine is undoubtedly one of the strongest Burgundy crus.
