Bright and uplifting aroma of raspberries, wild strawberry, fresh roses and a spices. The palate is well balanced with upfront chalky tannins, firm acid and a long finish. This is a wine with gorgeous freshness and will age very well. Outstanding! (Matt Perrella 2/16)

 



The Parent family can trace their roots back to Etienne Parent, who in 1787 became Thomas Jefferson's wine advisor for Burgundy. The Parent family have been a permanent fixture in Pommard ever since, with the 6th generation, sisters Anne and Catherine now in charge, and their brother Francois working with his wife at their Domaine Anne Francoise Gros.



Since 1998, Anne has modified her approach to the wines. With 100% destemming, handpicking and three sorting tables, the story here is a little like that at Domaine Lamarche, where in recent years the quality has escalated. Anne views it thus: Pommard has two distinctive characters that can be grouped into the North and the South. The Pommards from the north of the appellation being like a man that plays Golf and drives an Aston Martin, those made from grapes grown in the south being like one that likes rugby and drives a Porsche.
