The terroir, big enough for the village of Pommard, was set up by the monks from Cîteaux. Next to Beaune, it grows on clayey and limestone soils with a low slope. In this context, the ripe grapes expresse power, with a rustic touch when it is young. It's a worth keeping terroir. The grapes are purchased in the part of Les Grands Epenots.
