Pommard Clos Marey-Monge, Monopole (9), 2018
With its brilliant, bright ruby color and purple undertones, our Clos Marey-Monge 2018 is a complex, generous, and aromatic wine. The nose, flattering, reveals delicately powdered aromas along with notes of dried flowers, fresh roses and black fruit, highlighted by iodine, finely peppery note. The palate is fresh, round and generous, while the tannins are silky with a light sweetness. The very full finish gives this powerful wine an airy side. A great Pommard for aging, but one which can also be appreciated today.
The largest monopole in Burgundy, Clos Marey-Monge benefits from a unique environment protected by a two-meter-high stone wall. Positioned at the base of the hill of Pommard, the complexity of our vineyard’s soils come from the alluvial, sand and gravel carried along by the Avant-Dheune river one thousand years ago. Our blend of the seven cuvées from the limestone and clay-rich terroirs of the clos creates a deep, elegant, and sophisticated Pinot Noir.
