Château de Pommard and Famille Carabello-Baum are delighted to announce the release of 15 wines from the 2019 vintage. From Gevrey-Chambertin to Puligny-Montrachet, the family invites wine lovers to explore Burgundy’s famous La Route des Grands Crus and taste some of the most iconic appellations of the region.
Mysteriously 1999, 2009, and other vintages ending with 9, the year 2019 is a remarkable year for Burgundy. Despite a spring punctuated by cold periods with several episodes of frost, followed by a hot and dry summer, the wines—red and white—display an exceptional delicacy. Chardonnays are rich and well-balanced, while Pinot Noirs show a pleasant freshness. This is the magic of the ‘9’ vintage in Burgundy.
“In Burgundy, the years ending in 9 are recognized for being exceptional, and 2019 was no exception,” notes Emmanuel Sala, Head Winemaker at Château de Pommard. “Rich and mature, with a pleasant freshness, our gorgeous 2019 wines are definitely in line with these symbolic vintages.”
Wine lovers can celebrate this once-in-a-decade release, with four unique collections of six and three bottles, now available at a special en primeur price. Both the La Route des Grands Crus Collection ($282) and the La Route des Grands Crus Premium Collection ($518) sample the family’s best-selling Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the Côte d’Or. The Côte de Nuits Red Trio ($243.90) includes three Pinot Noirs: Nuits-Saint-Georges 2019, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru “Les Cazetiers” 2019, and Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru “Les Lavrottes” 2019. The Côte de Beaune White Trio ($252.90) features Meursault 2019, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru “Morgeot” 2019, and Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2019. All of the family’s wines are available at the Château de Pommard website and can be delivered worldwide.
The family is proud to announce two organic wines in the 2019 vintage: Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019 ($29) and Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019 ($29). Château de Pommard began its collaboration with Nature in 2018, with the biodynamics conversion of its famous vineyard, the Clos Marey-Monge. The Bourgogne Chardonnay and Bourgogne Pinot Noir wines are made with the same biodynamics principles. These two organic cuvées are the first organic releases from Famille Carabello-Baum and Château de Pommard.
