- The village of Pommard is comfortably sandwiched between the town of Beaune and the village of Volnay. The name Pommard is derived originally from the name of a Roman goddess, Pomona whose sphere of interest included fruit and gardens. The name of Pommard can also be explained by the word "Polmarlum" from old French, meaning "swamp" because Pommard is in the limit of floodplain.
Pommard 1er Cru is aged in handcrafted oak barrels made at our own cooperage. The wood helps to bring out the richness and the opulence of the wine.
