Our Story

Every year, consumers and professionals from more than 80 countries around the world visit Château de Pommard to learn about the world of wine from Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) professionals and taste the purest expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from villages along the Route des Grands Crus. From the grape to the glass, guests experience Clos Marey-Monge, a geological marvel, and home to seven distinct clay and limestone-rich plots, now protected as one of the world heritage Climats of Burgundy by UNESCO.

Founded in 1726, Château de Pommard combines three hundred years of savoir-faire and the innovative vision of Famille Carabello-Baum for the future. Wine lovers and critics agree the conversion to biodynamic viticulture is producing honest, energetic wines infused with an unmistakable sense of place while preserving the planet where we all live.

Our Wines

Burgundy is home to our more than 25 cuvées. From the Grand Crus of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune to our Clos Marey-Monge cuvées.

Burgundy’s largest monopole surrounds the Château de Pommard. Protected by a two-meter high stone wall built at the beginning of the 19th century, Clos Marey‑Monge is a collection of different micro-climates and soil types. Each of our seven terroirs – Simone, Nicolas-Joseph, Grands Esprits, Chantrerie, 75 Rangs, Micault, and Émilie – is a different composition of limestone, iron-rich clay, alluvium and other minerals essential to Pinot Noir. Centuries of savoir-faire contribute to our knowledge of how to get the most from each plot and produce a blend that reveals the complexity of our wines each year.

Pommard, Ladoix, and Volnay — the gateway to Côte de Beaune is an indisputable land of Pinot Noir. With ideal soils and exposure to the sun, the distinct terroirs of the area proved to be a perfect fit for red wines. Yet, it is Chardonnay that lent prestige to the vineyard. From the village of Santenay to the slopes of the Hill of Corton, Côte de Beaune is home to the grandest white wines. Eight Grands Crus take roots in this 20 kilometers-long winegrowing region and even more lesser‑known appellations that are worth the taste.

With 24 Grands Crus divided in a 20 kilometers stretch of land, Côte de Nuits deserves its surname of Burgundy’s Champs-Elysées. With a high density of clay per square meter, it is an incontestable land of Pinot Noir. Bonnes-Mares, Échezeaux, and Charmes-Chambertin are the perfect illustration of what this region does best. Ever since Claude Marey, in 1760, Château de Pommard has been offering wines of the Côte de Nuits.
