2014 Pommard Pinot Noir

2014 Pommard - Clonal Series

Each year we put the spotlight on one of the twelve different Pinot Noir clones grown at Domaine Carneros by bottling separately. We first bottled the Pommard clone (aka UCD 5) separately in 2009, and since then we have kept our eye on this consistent performer.

The 2014 growing season offered an ideal match for this early ripening clone. The cool season allowed a pick date of August 26th. This single block wine was handled in a very straightforward manner, with a traditional Burgundian-style open top fermentation and native yeast ferment that allowed the delicate nature of the Pommard fruit its full and unadorned expression.

Champagne is a wonderful wine: one sometimes drinks too much, but never enough.
