Pommard 1er Cru « Clos Blanc » (2019)

**"Pommard Premier Cru Clos Blanc: A Testament to Beaune’s Elegance"**

Pommard Premier Cru Clos Blanc is a red wine that epitomizes the excellence of the Pommard region, long regarded since the Middle Ages as "the flower of Beaunois wines." This Pinot Noir, grown in a 1.10-hectare vineyard with vines planted as early as 1920, is a true representation of the prestigious Premier Crus of Pommard, located just 3 km south of Beaune.

At an altitude of 330 meters with an east exposure, the Clos Blanc vines thrive in a clay-limestone soil, contributing to the wine's distinctive terroir. Embracing organic and biodynamic practices, the vineyard focuses on soil vitality and microbial activity, avoiding chemical interventions and employing soil management techniques like winter grassing.

The winemaking process is deliberately non-interventionist. The grapes are handpicked and carefully sorted, with 70 to 90% of the grapes being destemmed depending on the vintage. The fermentation is a slow 25-day process using indigenous yeasts in concrete vats, with daily pumping over to naturally develop the wine's color and aromas.

After fermentation, the wine is pressed pneumatically and aged in barrels (10% new) for 16 months without racking, then transferred to vats. The wine, unfiltered and unfined with minimal sulfite addition, maintains a vine density of 10,000 vines per hectare, yielding 20 hectoliters per hectare.

Pommard Premier Cru Clos Blanc, with its aging potential of 7 to 15 years, is more than a wine; it's a celebration of the rich winemaking heritage of the Côte d'Or. Produced by Clos du Moulin Aux Moines, this wine is a luxurious journey through the history and tradition of Burgundian viticulture.
