Food Matching: An excellent Pinot Noir to pair, try with rack of lamb in a herb crust or seared duck breast particularly accented with red fruits like cherries or blackberries.

Vineyard: A vineyard planted on clay and limestone with a plantation density of 10,000 vinestocks/ha. This is sone in order to extract as much as possible from the terroir and limit the production of each vine stock. Yielding 44 hl/ha - low on purpose, in order for the grapes to reveal every nuance of the terroir. History & tradition: there must have been vines planted here for a long time. More than 2,000 years ago, the Gauls selected and propagated the Pinot Noir grape in this location. A temple dedicated to Pomona, the Celtic goddess, may be at the origin of the name. The Pommard Grands Epenots stretch south-east of the premier cru production area, on the Beaune side. The word "Epenots" used to mention a ground covered with thorn.

Vinification: Maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks, with ferment started spontaneously by Indigenous yeasts. Maceration and fermentation temperatures conducted in a controlled environment. Post fermentation the wines are aged barrels for 14 - 18 months. Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance but should never be detrimental to the finesse and typical character of the wine.
