Winemaker Notes

Delicacy, density, and an innate sens of balance are typical of this great wine. Its color is intense, the nose is very expressive with violet and red fruit aromas like cherry or morello cherry, which express a great complexity. The mouth is fleshy and concentrated, and the tannins are fine, velvety, and elegant.

JM 95
Jasper Morris
This is a mix of Grands and Petits Epenots together. It is easy to perceive that the Petits sector is Anne’s favourite. 40% whole bunches and 50% new wood have been employed. Medium depth, more crimson than purple. There is some elegance to the nose. Anne says that this wine is normally more floral, but I can see the flowers here nonetheless. Fruit fills the palate without being overly weighty; indeed it is very long, ‘haute couture’ according to Anne. A graceful and intellectual Pommard. Excellent length.
Barrel Sample: 93-95

Notes of wood and menthol combine with those of red currant, dark raspberry and plenty of earth and floral scents. The velvety yet quite powerful big-bodied flavors also brim with sappy dry extract that pushes the otherwise notably firm tannic spine to the background on the built-to-age, balanced and wonderfully persistent finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. This built-to-age effort will need time to absorb its oak but is otherwise excellent.

Domaine Parent, France
Domaine Parent, located in Pommard, in the heart of Côte d’Or, is today run by Anne Parent and her sister Catherine Fages-Parent, representing the 12th generation, and perpetuating a family tradition dating back to the 17th century. In 1787, Etienne Parent had friendly and professional connections with Thomas Jefferson who was to become the 3rd President of the United States. He then became a forerunner of Burgundy wine exportations across the Atlantic. At the beginning of 19th century, Claude Parent left Volnay, the family cradle, to settle in Pommard and to build Domaine Parent in 1803. In 1947, Jacques Parent, then 19 years old, began working with his father Maxime. He then took over the management of the Domaine in 1953, and triggered an innovative impetus. Indeed, Domaine Parent was one of the first estates of Côte d’Or which sold all its production in bottles, in France on the best tables of French gastronomy, and overseas as well. Jacques Parent’s will to work and ensure the continued existence of this family property allowed him to pass on the family estate calmly to his two daughters Anne and Catherine in 1998.

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Representing some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot Noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Côte de Beaune—along with Volnay—that is recognized for its impressive Pinot Noir. While it can’t boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.

Les Pézerolles, Les Épenots, Clos des Épeneaux, Les Chanlins, Les Jarolières, Les Fremiers and particularly Les Rugiens are among the most outstanding Premiers Crus.

The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand some time in the bottle to reach their peak.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
