2018 Heitz-Lochardet Pommard 1er Cru 'Clos des Poutures' (MAGNUM)
SKU: 2018-HEITZ-POMM-001Regular price $214.95
New to domaine bottling but far from new to viticulture in Burgundy, Heitz-Lochardet is a rising star and of our favorites here at SommCellars. Armand Heitz is the dynamic heir to his family's winery which has history back to the mid 19th century. Upon completion of oenology school, Heitz made the huge leap to begin bottling at his domaine after generations of traditionally selling fruit to top négoicants such as Drouhin. Sustainable viticulture with minimal interference is at the foundation of Heitz's approach with the results being clear in a well-rounded array of terroir-specific transparent wines.
'Clos des Poutures' is a monopole vineyard, solely in the hands of Armand Heitz, which produces wines of balance, pure fruit and complexity. The 2017 offers a great sense of softness and round texture without being overly so.
