Maison Shaps Pommard 2014
Located on the slopes above the village of Pommard, Les Vaumuriens Bas is a site that is well situated, facing east-southeast and benefits from great sun exposure as well as good air and water drainage. The grapes are destemmed and partially crushed with 15% whole cluster fruit included. We ferment the pinot to full dryness on the skins with extended post fermentation maceration. The pinot from this site tends to be more elegant than some of the other pinots in Pommard and is characterized by spice and fruit notes that are complimented by a softer tannic structure. This 2014 vintage is an elegant version with a balance of oak and tannins.
