Variety: Pinot Noir
The Lescure Domaine is among the newer winemaking families, but just as fierce. Chantal Lescure was begun in 1975 by Chantal and her husband Xavier. They claimed 18 hectares of land strewn throughout Chambolle-Musigny in the Cote de Nuits and the Volnay in Cote de Beaune. Today their two sons coordinate the running of the estate and farm from parcels running from Dijon in the north to Meursault in the south. The Domaine takes organic farming very seriously, as they have been practicing full organics since 2000; they're even certified by Ecocert.
“Les Verduns” is situated directly next door to other Pommard plots, though its positioning is outside the appellation parameter. In short, the wine is Pommard quality, even though it clocks in as a Bourgogne Rouge. The vines are 45 years old and the wine is done in whole cluster, which makes for some beautiful aromatics. Plenty of aging potential for “Les Verduns.”
