Chateau du Pommard
With its bright and intense ruby colour lined with crimson reflections, the Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2017 is a complex, generous and flavorful Pinot Noir. The nose shows aromas of powder and red fruits, as well as notes of smokiness, all bringing great complexity to the wine. The palate is fresh, revealing firm tannins and a well-rounded structure. Long and sapid while aerial, the finale unveils a vibrant, energetic, and complex Pommard drinkable today, but also ageable for decades.
The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey-Monge benefits from a unique environment protected by a two-meter-high stone wall. Positioned at the base of the hill of Pommard, the complexity of the vineyard’s soils come from the alluvial, sand and gravels carried along by the Avant-Dheune river thousand years ago. Our blend of the seven cuvées from the limestone and clay-rich terroirs of the Clos creates a deep, elegant, and sophisticated Pinot Noir.
