La Maison Jean-Claude Boisset is part of a journey that began in 1961 when Claudine and Jean-Claude Boisset met in Gevrey-Chambertin.

This wonderful Pommard has a very intense nose with red berries, some violet notes. A very round mouth, supported by velvety tannins. A nice freshness, quite far from the typicity of the Pinot Noirs from this appellation!

Between Beaune and Volnay are the vast vineyards of Pommard, extending out on either side of a monumental coomb. This gives rise to two types of wine: from vines grown on the hill on the Beaune side, and from those originating in the slopes and ‘plunging’ down towards Volnay. This is the side on which Les Vaumuriens can be found, resting on a mixture of clay and limestone. The soil gives the wine a solid attack in the mouth, and a great elegance at the finish. In old French – and the term is entirely appropriate in this case – ‘Vaumuriens’ describes a narrow, steep-sided valley very high up the hill.

Aged on the lees for 12 months with no racking using a proportion of 35% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.

A very round mouth, supported by velvety tannins. A nice freshness, quite far from the typicity of the appellation!
