  • From a plot in front of Les Grand Epenots
  • An impressively complex blend of strawberry, cherry and spice notes
  • "Very good Pommard villages and worth checking out" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

The village Lieu Dit of La Croix Blanche sits just south of the 1er Cru of Les Grands Epenots, a small road dividing the two vineyards. At the bottom in front of Les Grand Epenots. More fine clay than limestone in this vineyard. 37 years old.

Separate Lieu Dit village bottling as it deserves to be separate from the village Pommard label in Ann’s experience with this site. 10% whole bunch in 2019. old maceration for 3 to 5 days pre ferment then pigeage 2 to 3 times a day for approx 2 weeks. 16 months in oak. 40% new. Aged for 14 to 16 months.

– Importer’s Notes

Allen Meadows

A ripe and attractively fresh nose flashes notes of liqueur-like purple fruit, earth, pepper and a hint of violet. The spicy, round and supple medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely sense of underlying tension and reasonably good detail, all wrapped in a mildly rustic and solidly complex finale. This is a very good Pommard villages and worth checking out.

Neal Martin

The 2019 Pommard la Croix Blanche includes 10% whole clusters and 35% new oak. It has a lovely, very pure bouquet with macerated red cherries, crushed strawberry and light cassis aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a light grip on the entry, quite compact at the moment though imminent racking will address that. Fine black peppery notes on the finish. Good potential.

Jasper Morris MW

10% whole bunch 40% new wood. More purple than crimson with a vibrant juicy deep red fruit. Very good comforting deep cherry and ripe raspberry nose, a little acidity, quite balanced.
