great vintage

2018 was the first vintage of the Pommard Clos de la Commaraine by the new owners who cultivate this first-class vineyard biodynamically. This 3.75 hectare monopol vineyard is one of the best three terroirs in Pommard, some even consider it a Grand Cru worthy. The wines are considered fragrant and generous wines that are highly refined and balanced.
The new owners are working hard to turn this pearl into one of the best red Burgundies on the Côte de Beaune. Quote: "We have carried out in-depth studies in order to gain a better understanding of the Clos de Commaraine terroir and to help us produce great wines.
The first phase was an analysis of soil depth and types using electromagnetic resonance, which enabled us to create an initial map of the clos by dividing it into eight sub-plots. For the Domaine's first harvest in 2018, these eight sub-plots were harvested on different dates and the wine from each plot was produced and aged separately.
A second stage was to dig twenty ditches in the Clos in order to verify the first results of the electromagnetic resonance analysis and to improve the map of the Clos, which will help us to adopt different wine production techniques in the different sub-plots that make up the Clos.
The third stage was an analysis of the composition of the soil taken from the ditches which had been dug.
The fourth phase will take place in the spring of 2019 and is an analysis of the plant-based material that makes up the Clos in order to determine whether it is in symbiosis with its terroir and whether it is necessary to make changes to cultivation techniques to achieve the most perfect match possible in terms of soil and plant-based material."
Now the fantastic 2019 is available, one of the greatest vintages ever with a more classic style, very storable, but only with a very small harvest. So you should hurry up.
