Jean Claude Boisset Pommard 1er Cru Les Arvelets 2018
The color is dark ruby red. The intense nose exudes aromas of fruit such as blackcurrant and blackberry, with some notes of violets. On the palate, this supple and elegant wine is supported by silky tannins.
Between Beaune and Volnay extends the vast vineyard of Pommard which unfolds on each side of a monumental combe.
The plot "Les Arvelets" is located at the exit of this valley on the north slope. Exposed south with a clay-limestone soil rich in iron oxide covered with alluvium and silt, this premier cru is the steepest of the appellation.
The Latin roots of the word "arvelet" refer to the presence of old fields, plowing land at this location.
