Located in the Côte de Beaune, between Beaune and Volnay, Pommard marks the spot where the “Côte” sinks slightly toward Autun. The lower portion is made up of ancient alluvial deposits while the mid-slope region consists of clay-limestone soils that are well-drained due to gravel made up of rocky debris. Higher still, Oxfordian (Jurassic) marls along with brown calcic and limestone soils can be found. Iron oxide gives a reddish hue to the soil in certain areas. Eastern and souther exposure. Altitude : between 250 and 330 metres.
Located on a gentle south-eastern facing slope, this is considered to be the softest of Pommard wines.
