The towns of Pommard and Volnay are giants of the Côte de Beaune reds. Though less than a mile apart, the two towns represent opposing profiles – Volnay tending toward elegant and feminine, and Pommard toward sturdy and masculine. As neighbors they provide an excellent example of the microterroirs of Burgundy.
As you might expect, terroir shift exists on a continuum. (In other words, they had to draw the line somewhere.) And as you approach the border, the differences between the towns blur a bit, and it’s there that we find Mégard’s Pommard. It’s a Pommard by name, but we think it shows some of the best of both towns.
