Producer Profile – The Story

RAISON D’ETRE – Pommard, Pommard 1er Cru’s,Ladoix, Bourgogne Rouge

POMMARD – The Domaine is situated in the heart of the village of Pommard, currently run by sisters Ann and Catherine Parent. Founded in 1803 they now represent the 12th generation of winemakers in the family. The Domaine consists of approximately 10 hectares focused predominately on Pommard and its 1er Cru’s.

LES EPENOTS – This special plot of land was rejected by the village in 1936 when originally granted Grand Cru status. Domaine Parent have rows in both Petit and Grand Les Epenots which they carefully cultivate and vinify for their world renowned 1er Cru.

BIODYNAMICS – It took Ann over 10 years to slowly convert her domaine to a biodynamic approach. In her words she says“I practice biodynamics to protect the soil and the terroir, and for our health. It’s not a fashion, it’s a long term philosophy.”
