The appellation POMMARD is one of the more famous in Burgundy. The village itself, is situated in the heart of the vineyards on the hillside. Pommard is exclusively red with 28 "climats". The best 1er Cru’s of Pommard are; "RUGIENS", "EPENOTS" and the "GRANDS EPENOTS". François Gaunoux owns vines from all three of these appellations.
The RUGIENS is located on the slopes with a rocky terrain. It is exposed in one of the best positions, facing south, south-east. The subsoil is a mix of marl and limestone; followed by iron elements which help give the rich coloored wine.
The RUGIENS has robust and perfumed characteristics hinting on licorice and violet. It’s considered as a strong tannic wine with a lengthy palate. A wine that can last at least 10 years with correct cellaring.
