Domaine Armand Heitz Pommard 1er Cru Rugiens 2019

SKU
AHBC201911 UCAU
Rugiens has been renowned and vinified in isolated vats for several centuries. They were worshipped in the 19th century and considered, with Corton, as the best wines of Beaune. This adulation was reduced to the benefit of the name of the village when it was not classified as a grand cru in the 1930s, though many believe it should have been. Soil : the Rugiens sector is entirely raised from a low-slope area, rich in iron oxide, to a stony hillside with lighter and clearer soils.

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Burgundy

Burgundy is undoubtedly the home of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnays in the world, where vineyards, or Domaines have been producing wines for over 2000 years. Burgundy is located in the North-east of France, an hours drive from Lyon and 2 hours from Paris. With over 100 appellations, or sub-regions (more than any other wine region) Burgundy is known for being the most terroir-oriented region in the World. The finest red wines of Burgundy are found in the Côte d'Or, a string of villages including Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey St Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-St Georges.

There are flavours present in great Burgundys that are the envy of Pinot Noir producers worldwide. The elusive peacocks tail finish that goes on and on, and the pretty-elegance backed by Burgundy muscle is the goal of winemakers around the globe. The main levels in the Burgundy classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations. For the Chablis wines, a similar hierarchy of Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Village wines is used, plus Petit Chablis as a level below Village Chablis.

Pommard

Pommard is an appellation village of the Côte de Beaune subregion of the Côte-d’Or in Burgundy, France. It received its appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) in 1936 – one of the first to do so. It sits between Beaune and Volnay and includes 28 Premiers Crus, including the famed vineyards of Les Rugiens and Les Épenots. The area is renowned for producing exclusively red wines from the Pinot Noir grape. These wines are typically deep red in colour. On the nose, expect powerful aromatics of black and red fruits, such as blackberry, ripe plum, and cherry pit. With age, these aromas concentrate even further, and notes of leather, pepper, and chocolate develop. These wines also boast reasonably high tannin content; with significant ageing, these dense, firm tannins soften and smooth out, resulting in fruit-filled, textural, robust wines.
