Chantal Lescure's sons have converted the domaine's 21 ha to organic viticulture. Their villages Pommard comes from the Les Vaumuriens lieu dit, in the elegant 2014 vintage.

Founded in 1975 by Chantal Lescure, the domaine was taken over in 1996 by her sons Aymeric and Thibault and thus began its conversion to organic viticulture, becoming certified in 2009. They have 18 hectares in the Côte de Beaune and 3 in the Côte d'Or. Based in the town of Nuits-St-Georges, the domaine is rapidly becoming one of Burgundy’s most sought-after addresses with winemaker Francois Chaveriat pushing quality to new levels. The approach is relatively low-intervention winemaking, a gravity-fed winery using only wild yeasts, low sulphur additions and no fining or filtration; an approach that Francois feels brings out a real feeling of terroir in the wines.

The Vaumuriens is a high elevation site with clay and limestone soils. The vineyard is north-facing, which means the wines have higher acidity and age fantastically. Their vines here are all at least 35 years old, and the resulting wine typifies Pommard's reputation for power and solidity, well balanced by its freshness.

The grapes are destemmed but not crushed, then see a pre-fermentation maceration of a few days, then a slow natural fermentation of almost 4 weeks, with punching down. The wine is aged for around a year and a half in 30% new oak.

 Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir

Farming Practices: Organic

Food Match: An obvious choice for aromatic cheeses like Epoisses, Langres or Soumaintrain, or roasted pheasant.

Tasting Note: This cuvée delivers real aromatic punch, with tons of meatiness and tobacco leaf filling out the dark cherry and blackberry fruit character. Dense with flavour, yet still fresh and lively on the tongue, with a lingering, savoury finish.

Sugar Level: 2g/l

Closure: Cork
