Pommard Clos des Ursulines Domaine du Pavillon Albert Bichot

Pommard Clos des Ursulines Domaine du Pavillon Albert Bichot 2013

This Pommard "Clos des Ursulines" reveals a fruity nose redolent of cherry, blackcurrant and fig. Over the years these aromas will evolve toward notes of coffee and leather. Full and round on the palate with ripe tannins and rich, but not heavy style. This wine is powerful and well-structured yet remains subtle, elegant and almost "feminine" due to the vineyard’s proximity to Volnay. The finish is silky and velvety.

The “Clos des Ursulines”, a peaceful haven dotted with centuries-old pine trees, is located at the heart of Pommard. It is undoubtedly this tranquillity that once enchanted the nuns from the Ursuline convent who were the first owners of the estate. This almost 4-hectare (9.8 acre) “monopole” is located at the southern end of the Pommard appellation toward Volnay. Thanks to its unique terroir, this wine challenges the widely spread myth that Pommard wines are more “masculine”.
