Village-Level Bourgogne Rouge: 2020 Domaine Lejeune Pomard Les Trois Follots
Ah, the sleepy village of POMMARD, home to some of the most iconic Burgundy houses like Courcel (huge fan of Grand Clos des Epenots), AF Gros, and legendary vineyards like Les Grands Epenots, and today’s offer, 2020 Domaine Lejeune Pommard Les Trois Follots. Domaine Lejeune's Pommard Les Trois Follots is a wine that combines history, tradition, passion, and a dash of magic to create an experience that will linger on your palate and in your heart. And at a price that won’t stop the heart (seriously, Pommard is one of my favorite places for this reason).
With roots stretching back to 1783, Domaine Lejeune has honed their craft for over five generations. This family-owned gem, now in the hands of the Jullien de Pommerol family, embodies the essence of Pommard's winemaking legacy. Domaine Lejeune is quickly becoming a BHW favorite Burgundian producer.
Here's how they make their magic: Grapes crushed by foot and fermented in open wooden vats, one of which, is the oldest of its kind in the entire Burgundy region.
Pommard Les Trois Follots is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir. Picture black cherries and plums mingling with smoky herbs and the whispers of clay soil. The palate welcomes you with a lush, powerful embrace, unveiling dark fruits and toasty oak. The magic culminates in a classic Pommard finish, where elegant oak tannins are embraced by dark fruits, wrapping you in a truly delightful and unforgettable experience.
The best part of it all? We’ve secured the lowest price anywhere + free shipping on 6 or more bottles!
This wine is ready to drink right now, but if you would like to lay your bottles down for a couple of years, the Pommard quality fruit provides the necessary structure for this wine to live a long life.
