The most powerful red wines of the Cote de Beaune come from Pommard, where complex soils with a high proportion of iron-rich clay produce deep-colored, relatively tannic wines, characterized by weight more than elegance. Some of the most gloriously pure wines of Burgundy are being produced here today – dark-hued, robust in character and capable of long aging. Pommard has for long had a high reputation for its wines, though it has never had any grands crus.
