  • The village of Pommard is comfortably sandwiched between the town of Beaune and the village of Volnay. In contrast to the wines of its close neighbours, those of Pommard tend to be fuller, more tannic and expansive in the mouth, similar to those of the Côte de Nuits. « Les Rugiens » got its name from the colour of the ground of the vineyard: the clay soils are red and the vineyard is covered by a layer of iron ore.
