The very name seems to suggest muscularity and depth: Pommard is where the biggest, toughest red wines of the Côte de Beaune are to be found. The style is a factor of soil type. Looking at a typical glass of dark, foursquare Pommard and ruby, perfumed wine from next-door Volnay is a stark reminder of how much specific location in a geographically small area can make such a dramatic difference to the style of Pinot Noir in Burgundy. Pommard contains no Grand Crus but has 28 Premier Crus and also produces a relatively large amount of Village wine. (Wine/Appellations)
