Village Level Red Burgundy - Pinot Noir. A fun fact to start the introduction - this is Burghound’s highest pointed Pommard Villages. Pommard’s main feature is the stream of the Avant Dheune that in prehistoric times was a flowing river into what was the Jurassic sea. Therefore heavier soils (clay) were washed down and that is why Pommard has heavier, more structured wines than, say, Volnay. En Mareau is in this combe (side valley) with a cooler aspect to those further around toward Volnay or on the Beaune side of Pommard. "This is also aromatically wonderfully fresh with its pretty nose that consists of red currant, maraschino cherry and a touch of earth. The exceptionally rich and palate coating medium weight flavors possess a lovely hint of minerality that really becomes more apparent on the serious, firm and youthfully austere finish. This offers very fine quality for a Pommard villages though note that some forbearance is suggested." 89 Points (Top Value) Allen Meadows, Burghound.
