Pommard 1er Cru Cuvée Dames de la Charité
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Pommard 1er Cru|
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
Rich imperial purple colour. The nose has a delicious mix of fine red fruits and currants. There is some fine dark berry fruit at the front of the palate with lifted dark cherry fruit defining the second half of the wine. A fine masculine wine with a lof of depth and complexity.
The intensity of this Pommard will match a coq-au-vin, a beef stew of a beautiful T-bone steak.
The unstinting care with which the Sisters of Charity looked after old people and orphans would alone justify their right to recognition and gratitude. In addition, many left their personal possessions to the institution. This is the most prestigious Pommard Cuvée, and has been 100% Premier Cru since 2005.
