French Wine Map
It has always been a dream of mine to travel through France, visiting Vineyards and to immerse myself in the style and techniques of different growers. Burgundy is set in Eastern France trailing through valleys and slopes of Saône, from Auxerre in the North to Mâcon in the South. There are two grape varieties that dominate this wine region; Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Soils and climate build the structure and complexity of the wine, Burgundy soils can range from limestone, clay, sand and marl-stone, so a wine in the North will taste vastly different to a wine made in the South.
To purchase wines select a region on the wine map (Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Charlonnaise and Mâconnais) you will be able to purchase wines that I have found on my journey through Burgundy.
Pommard marks the start of serious red wine production in the Côte de Beaune and has a large number of Premier Cru vineyards, which run almost uninterrupted from the commune boundaries of Beaune in the north to Volnay in the south.
Château de Pommard has been Established since 1726,the property is known for its two Châteaux, gardens, and its 20 hectare walled vineyard, Clos Marey-Monge. Producing Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Village and Burgundy wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir appellations across the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune.
