A private, paired wine dinner with Château de Pommard

Founded in 1726, Château de Pommard is an iconic Burgundy estate combining 300 years of history, and owner of Burgundy’s largest monopole, the « Clos Marey-Monge ». Protected by a two-meter high stone wall built at the beginning of the 19th century, Clos Marey-Monge is a collection of different micro-climates and soil types. Fully converted to Biodynamic viticulture since 2016, each of our seven terroirs – Simone, Les Paules, Grands Champs, Chantrerie, 75 Rangs, Micault, and Émilie – is a different composition of limestone, iron-rich clay, alluvium and other minerals essential to produce the best wines made from Pinot Noir.

Chardonnay / Côte de Beaune
From the village of Santenay to the slopes of the Hill of Corton, Côte de Beaune is home to the grandest white wines made from Burgundy’s iconic grape variety, Chardonnay. The region offers an unrivalled playground for the grape variety to express itself and brings global prestige to the local appellations in the names of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet or Corton Charlemagne. With an exceptional terroir made of limestone-rich soils, it will produce a wine with an intense gold color, aromas of white fleshed fruit, lined with floral, creamy, oaky notes, and a smooth, mineral filled palate. Côte de Beaune Chardonnays remain a unique expression of the Burgundian soils, and are often enhanced by French oak barrels ageing and the breeding on fine lees.

Pinot Noir / Côte de Beaune
Originating from Burgundy, Pinot Noir is one of the most difficult grape variety to grow, producing some the most refined red wines in the world. The grape variety finds its best match in the limestone and clay vineyards of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune from famous appellations like Chambolle-Musigny, Échezeaux, Gevrey‑Chambertin, Pommard, or Volnay where it can express its full potential. A classic Burgundian Pinot Noir will display a bright ruby colour, aromas of red and black fruits and delicate tannins, as well as being able to reflect the tiniest variation of the soils.

On Wednesday 1st April 2020,
we are proud to present a paired dinner hosted by: Olivier Bouchard & David Soulard of Château de Pommard
£XX per person. Reception at 7pm. Seats at 7.30pm.
