Pommard Les Charmots Wine

'Les Charmots' vineyard, Pommard
(? BIVB / Ibanez A.)

Les Charmots is one of Pommard's most notable Premier Cru appellation sites, producing red Burgundy wines from the Pinot Noir grape. It located on the slopes of the Côte d'Or above the village itself. Here, the stony, sunny terroir is well-suited to Pinot Noir, producing rich, deep wines with plentiful flavors of black fruit and chocolate.

Pommard's vineyard area is effectively halved by the valley of the Dheune river, which cuts into the Côte d'Or escarpment just west of the village. Les Charmots fills the enviable position on the hill where the slope of the vineyard curves around the edge of the valley, giving the vines an exposure that ranges from south to southeast. This means there is an excellent exposure to sunlight for a large portion of the day, and grapes can ripen slowly and evenly. This way, flavor is balanced by acidity, and the wines are of a high quality as a result.

Les Charmots has a marly, stony soil composition, with a harder layer of limestone beneath. This is deeper than in the shallow soils of Épenots, lower on the hill, and allows for deep root penetration. A lack of water in the porous topsoil helps keep canopy growth to a minimum, and the vine has no opportunity to become complacent. The muscular structure of Les Charmots wines is often attributed to the presence of iron in the soil, giving it a reddish tinge.

Les Charmots is thought to take its name from hornbeam trees that once grew here. While not considered to be quite on the level of the Épenots vineyards to the east, Les Charmots Premier Cru wines are still among the best in Pommard.
