Compare the multiple expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and travel across the region’s rich maze of villages and terroirs while tasting a selection of Burgundy gems directly from the vineyard.
ABOUT CHÂTEAU DE POMMARD
Founded in 1726 by Vivant Micault, secretary to King Louis XV, Château de Pommard remains one of the most iconic and visited wine estates in Burgundy. Clos Marey-Monge, at the heart of the domain, has been producing one of the greatest expressions of Pinot Noir for more than two millennia. The 20-hectare clay and limestone-rich terroir make it the largest and most interesting monopole vineyards in the Côte d’Or. In July 2015, UNESCO declared the Clos a world heritage protected climat of Burgundy. The Carabello-Baum family of San Francisco purchased the domain in 2014 and became just the fifth family to guide the estate in almost 300 years. The family has transformed the estate into the ultimate wine education destination where anyone can experience the phenomenon that is Burgundy.
ABOUT MEGAN DAILY FLAMANT, YOUR TRUSTED WINE ADVISOR
Originally from the United States, Megan began her professional career as a Chemical Engineer in a plastics factory outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. But the call of the surrounding vineyards on the Monticello Wine Trail was too strong to ignore, and she finally left plastics to seek out greener, leafier pastures. In 2004, she took the plunge and moved to France to follow her wine dream. Today, with over 15 years of experience in international wine commerce, including 12 living and working in Burgundy, she is delighted to return home and share her passion for wine with you. She will act as your guide while you explore the mosaic of Burgundy’s terroirs, delve into the rich history of Château de Pommard and experience the magic of their lovingly hand-crafted wines.
