Comte Louis-Michel Liger-Belair of Chateau de Vosne-Romanée has just entered an agreement with the owners of Pommard Clos de la Commaraine to help with the making the wine from this historic 3.75 ha monopole vineyard.
This does set this vineyard on the map in a different way – first vintage is 2018.
Clos de la Commaraine is a Pommard 1er cru located just outside the centre of the village of Pommard. A prominent estate by all standards, with a beautiful Chateau located in the southern part of the vineyard – adjacent to the village.
The estate has since 2017 been owned by Harvard professor Denise Dupré and Mark Nunnelly, ex-managing director of the Boston-based Bain Capital investment fund.
It’s not the most famous of the Pommard vineyards yet – but with the new setup I would expect this to change – so here is a closer look at Clos de la Commaraine.
