Pommard Clos Marey-Monge, Micault (4), 2018
A pure expression of a lightly oaked Pinor Noir, our Micault 2018 displays a deep ruby color. This cuvée features aromas of red fruit, fresh rose and peony, with a hint of blood orange. On the palate, the tannins are supple and savory. We also find a full-bodied side which leaves a juicy impression in the mouth. Enjoyable today, this Pommard will evolve gracefully over the next 10 years.
Originally planted as an English garden, the 1.29-hectare parcel situated at the foot of Château Micault was eventually transformed into a vineyard. Its vines grow on fine alluvial formations from the Avant-Dheune river and create a fruity Pinot Noir that is enjoyable young.
