About Domaine de Courcel Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018
Domaine de Courcel Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018 is sourced from vineyards adjacent to the appellation Pommard. The brown soil originates from the coteaux and builds up at the bottom of the slope on flatter grounds. The depth of the soil can reach up to 1m. The presence of rocks enables a thorough filtration of the soil. The vines are 40 years of age and produce wine that is close in many characteristics to the Pommard Village but with a greater focus on red or even black fruits. This enables the wines to be more open when young.
About Domaine de Courcel
The Domaine de Courcel is a 400-year-old family-owned winery, located in the village of Pommard on the Côte d’Or. Its current owners, three sisters, and one brother, are the descendants of the founders. The estate is managed by Anne Bommelaer and Marie de Courcel.
Pommard is four kilometers south-east of Beaune. The vines span the southern coteaux (hillsides) of the Côte de Beaune, which is located in one of the most prestigious vine-growing areas.
The Domaine de Courcel’s vineyard is planted on around 10.5 hectares. It produces one of the highest quality red wines of the Côte de Beaune. Its red wines, made from Pinot Noir, can be characterized by their elegance and minerality as well as their strong tannins, which blend in nicely with the strong and beautiful aromas of red berries and toasted bread.
The vineyard is essentially composed of the prestigious Premier Crus. As such, the Domaine is one of the largest estates of « Pommard Premier Crus ». The vineyard is composed of the following appellations: Le Grand Clos des Epenots, Les Rugiens, Les Frémiers, and Les Croix Noires.
These four Premier Crus enjoy worldwide notoriety. Le Grand Clos des Epenots, which accounts for 50% of the Domaine’s production, and Les Rugiens are in a class of their own in Burgundy.
The Domaine also produces a Pommard Vaumuriens, a Bourgogne Pinot Noir as well as a Bourgogne Chardonnay.
Annual production, which never exceeds around 30,000 bottles, is sold throughout the world. The wines produced by the Domaine are frequently mentioned and reviewed in leading French or international wine publications.
