APPELLATION: Pommard 1er Cru
VARIETALS: Pinot Noir
VINEYARD: Located in the northern part of the appellation, De Montille's parcel of Pézerolles sits in the middle of the 1er Cru, the most revered part of the vineyard, which was once referred to as "Le Clos des Pézerolles." Interestingly, the name is derived from the ancient word for pois-chiche (chickpea). It is assumed that these were once cultivated on this terrain.
SOIL: Sandy topsoil on limestone
VINIFICATION: Fruit from Hubert's old clos saw 100% whole fermentation, while fruit from the middle aged vineyards was 50% whole cluster and the youngest vines were destemmed. Regarding sulfur, reds have the following: 45-65 mg/l total SO2, 20-25 mg/l free SO2.
AGING: Aged 14-18 months in barrel (30% new oak), then assembled and aged for additional months in stainless steel tank.
PRODUCTION: 3300 bottles
NOTES: Pézerolles is often thought of as an outlier because it is the most finesseful of the Pommard 1er Crus. Even though it sits on the other side of the village from Volnay, it's floral, delicate, and graceful profile is often described as being Volnay-esque.
