Coche-Dury Hospices de Beaune Pommard Cuvee Suzanne Chaudron 2019
When the Cyrot-Chaudron couple left vineyards to the Hospices de Beaune in 1979, the gift included several plots of very ancient vines. Over 40% of the vines were planted prior to 1959, with the oldest block dating from 1910. More than a third of the Cuvée comes from the southeast facing, low-yield hillsides of Les Petits Noizons, which dominate Pommard from the north. A select few barrels from 2019 vintage were purchased by the prestigious Domaine Coche-Dury for elevage in their cellars, a program they have invested heavily in recent years.
