Pommard & Volnay Tasting

Private wine tasting class

3 hours dedicated to the 2 villages Pommard & Volnay

Discover Pommard and Volnay, two charming villages with prestigious wines, located only a few kilometres south of Beaune. These two AOC wines share a common point: they produce only red wines.
These two wines have developed a tenacious reputation. Pommard is often described as a powerful wine while Volnay is usually described as a more elegant wine. This is what we propose to verify, or not...
After a drive through the vineyards of Pommard and Volnay, we stop for a landscape reading. On our return to Beaune, we propose a comparative tasting of 5 Pommard / Pommard 1er cru and 5 Volnay / Volnay 1er cru.

Depart Beaune aboard our Jeep Wrangler (4x4). We drive through the villages Pommard and Volnay with a stop for a landscape reading. Back to Beaune for the tasting.
