The Pommard appellation is a French designation of origin (AOC), and also has a European label: Protected Designation of Origin (AOP).
Located in the Côte de Beaune wine region in Burgundy, the appellation has over 320 hectares of vines. The vineyards are between 240 and 380 meters above sea level and the climate is temperate oceanic with slight continental tendencies. The Pommard appellation only produces red Burgundy wines, mainly with the grape variety of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris (locally called Pinot Beurot).
The great estates that produce their wines under the Pommard appellation are the Bouchard Père et Fils estate, the Montille estate, the Dugat-Py estate, the Louis Jadot estate, the Méo-Camuzet estate, Jean-Marc Boillot ... Pommard wines keep well and are known to be powerful wines with strong tannins for the youngest bottles, which is why you have to wait at least 5 years to reach maturity.
