The vineyards of Burgundy is with the Bordeaux and Champagne one of the most prestigious vineyards of France and the world with five appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designations, 32 grands crus, 562 premiers crus, 44 villages and 23 regional and sub-regional designations. The Burgundian vineyard extends over 250 km long from north of Chablis to south of Mâcon.

Two main varieties of grapes are used for Burgundy wine: Pinot Noir for the red wine and Chardonnay for white wines. These varieties are known to be among the finest and most complex, and they never give as good wines as with the soil and under the sky of Burgundy, particularly in Côte d'Or.

Côte d'Or in Burgundy is for many fans the world's most prestigious vineyards of France. The best white wines and the best red wine produced on this special geological faces south east. The Coast is divided into two parts, the Côte de Nuits to the north, including prestigious names like Vougeot, Gevrey-Chambertin, then south, the Cote de Beaune and its Aloxe, Montrachet, Volnay ... and Pommard.

Holding in one piece and in the same hands 20 ha of vineyards, the Château de Pommard is now the largest private vineyard in Burgundy. Protected by a stone wall two meters high, the soil's strength in a soil of clay and limestone from the Jurassic and in micro-climates that develop on its ground. Each parcel has its identity and that is why the master of the cellars vinify them separately.
