Château de Pommard
From the famed appellations of the Côte d’Or including Premier Crus, Grand Crus and the signature Clos Marey-Monge Monopole, Château de Pommard have the perfect wines for your holiday table.
Established in 1726, Château de Pommard is known for its two Châteaux, gardens, and its 20-hectare Clos (walled-vineyard), Clos Marey-Monge.
Just three kilometres south from Beaune, the ancient vineyard of Clos Marey-Monge sits close to the centre of the Côte d’Or. At 20 hectares, Château de Pommard is the largest private Clos in Burgundy. Protected by a two-meter high stone wall built at the beginning of the 19th century, Clos MareyMonge is a collection of different micro-climates and soil types. Each of the 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 Pinot Noir. Centuries of savoir-faire contribute to the knowledge of how to get the most from each plot and produce a blend that reveals the complexity of the wines each year.
The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey-Monge benefits from a unique environment protected by a two-meters-high stone wall. Positioned at the base of the hill of Pommard, the complexity of our 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.
With its bright and intense ruby colour lined with crimson reflections, our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2016 is a complex, generous and flavourful 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 age-able for decades.
Alluvium rich soil deposited by the Avant-Dheune river covers Micault’s 1.29 hectares of silt. Planted in 1987, the vines here produce a fruity, crisp and fleshy Pinot Noir that is very drinkable young. Once an English garden surrounding Château Micault, it was transformed into the 126 row Micault plot in 1968.
With a pale ruby colour our Micault 2017 is the purest expression of low-oaked Pinot Noir. Aged in older oak barrels, giving prominence to crisp red fruit aromas, it displays notes of strawberries and raspberries alongside hints of flowers such as peonies. The palate reveals low and mellow tannins, as well as a lot of flesh. Enjoyable from now on, this Pinot Noir from our Clos Marey-Monge is accessible now and will age gracefully in the years to come.
Chambolle-Musigny is rooted in the shallow clay and limestone soils on the easterly slopes of the Côte de Nuits, rising between 250 and 300 meters above sea level. Our Pinot Noir produced here is complex with soft tannins and a long finish. Once an adjunct to the Cîteaux Abbey, the vineyard gave its name to the village of Chambolle-Musigny, like 11 other climats throughout Côte d’Or.
With its aromas and flavours of musk, red fruits, and dry flowers underlined by notes of sandalwood and game, our Chambolle- Musigny 2017 has a beautiful touch. While still in development, this velvet red wine with a long finish presents a delicate and silky texture, enhanced by well-integrated tannins. It is approachable now, with great potential for aging.

The pebble-rich and limestone soils of Volnay, rising between 230 and 280 meters above sea level, makes for a delicate, aromatic, and elegant Pinot Noir revealing the feminine profile of the appellation. Cultivated since the Middle Ages, the vineyard located on the steep slopes of the hill of Chaignot has always been a perfect fit for Burgundy’s native red grape variety.
With a delicate nose of peonies, strawberries, raspberries and cherries, our Volnay 2017 shows a feminine profile. The palate reveals notes of pomegranate and sweet spices, such as vanilla and cinnamon, as well as silky and smooth tannins. With pronounced intensity and long finish, it is a Pinot Noir made for aging, that will evolve beautifully.
Located in the very south of the Côte de Beaune, right next to Santenay, Maranges “Le Clos des Loyères” marly-clay and limestone rich soils produce a Pinot Noir bursting with freshness, energy, and length.
Created in 1988, the Maranges appellation includes three villages – Cheilly-lès-Maranges, Dezize-lès- Maranges, and Sampigny-lès-Maranges – and holds seven Premiers Crus.
Behind its light ruby colour, the wine reveals aromas of wild and black fruits, lined with notes of vanilla, cloves, pepper, and a hint of flowers and almonds. The same flavours appear on the palate, enhancing the character of this well-balanced and elegant red. The tannins are smooth and silky and well-integrated. Approachable now, this wine will age beautifully.
Located in the plain that faces the Clos Marey-Monge, our plot “Les Lormes” complex Pommard soils are a great match to the region’s native red grape. Across the Côte de Beaune, clay-rich soils are the perfect terroir for this cépage. Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a balanced and silky wine that expresses the essence of Burgundy’s iconic grape variety.
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017 is a young red wine with a pale ruby color. It shows medium intensity aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, peonies and sweet spices like cinnamon, present both on the nose and palate. Fruity and well-balanced, with medium acidity and low tannins, it is a pure expression of Pinot Noir.
Made from the young vines of the Clos Marey-Monge, Vivant is a fresh and fierce red wine that embodies its French name “alive”.
Behind its clear, pale ruby colour, Vivant 2016 hides a youthful nose and palate full of strawberries, red cherries and sweet spices, such as white pepper. The finish is long, while the tannins are thin, crating a velvety texture. Alongside acidity and alcohol, they participate in creating a balanced and harmonious structure that enables the wine to age elegantly.
Coming from vineyards in Sonoma Coast, Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Lucia Highlands, sporting his signature impactful label and highly appraised with 93+ Robert Parker points, l’usine is an Aladdin’s Cave for Pinot Noir lovers…
Dave Phinney’s artistic fire has yet to fade in over 20 years since the winemaker and Orin Swift creator set the wine world ablaze. His innovative blends and continuous stream of imaginative labels have solidified international acclaim, hailed for both the quality and creativity of his approach. A collection of diverse, mysterious wines, Phinney looks to tells a new story with every bottle…
Inspired by one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Dave Phinney’s latest venture tackles the stuffy pretense associated with fine art. French for “The Factory,” l’usine is an homage to winemakers and artists who hold a shared defiant nature and a disdain for the status quo. l’usine offers three Pinot Noirs sourced from some of the most coveted regions and vineyards in California’s Central Coast – Santa Rita Hills, Annapolis Ridge and Sleepy Hollow Vineyard.
The blend exhibits darker aromatics of blueberry, raspberry, black pepper, vanilla crème and a slight funk. The entry is refined yet immense with flavors of redcurrant, cherry tart and traces of spice that follow through to the mid-palate. The backbone of acidity and a lengthy finish sets up the wine to age for many years.
