Brother and sister Guillaume and Sarah Glantenay are the sixth generation of their family to run this domaine, which they took over from their father, Pierre, in 2013. Pierre still works the estate’s eight hectares of vineyard, four of which are in Volnay, while Guillaume runs the new cuverie and Sarah looks after the sales and marketing of the domaine. For those who remember the wines from Pierre’s time, Guillaume has brought a greater elegance to the wines, and a lovely purity of fruit. He uses about 15 to 20% whole-bunch to lift the perfumes and low toast oak to support, rather than mask, these aromas.
This Pommard has a beautifully perfumed nose with precise notes of pure blackberry and black cherry fruit and a touch of clove spice. The palate is well structured with fine-grained tannins which result in a layered, elegant finish.
