"La Chaniere is one of the best location sites in Pommard and possibly one of the best bargains. Most of La Chaniere is classified premier cru, but a small parcel has yet not been designated despite being in La Chaniere and adjacent to Les Vignots premier cru. This plot was made into a vineyard in the 1970s and the vines have now reached over 40 yrs of age. We were able to secure 25 cases of the great 2015 vintage (considered one of the best vintages in the last 20 yrs) for the USA.
This is a wine of premier cru quality that comes from the great 2015 vintage and is a classic example of Pommard with its earthy and smoky characteristics. The wine, from 40 yr old vines comes from plots that are both on the 1er cru sectiont and the non-classified section. This beautiful wine has plenty of earthy, mushroomy notes on the nose, good structure, still lovely fruit and power on the palate, with nicely balanced tannins, smooth finish. It is rare to still find a wine from a wonderful vintage in Burgundy direct from the winemaker’s cellar that has some age and still drinking beautifully.
Pascal Maillard comes from a long tradition of winemakers. It goes all the way back to the 1650’s. But it was not until 1952 that Domaine Maillard was founded, by Pascal's father Daniel. They currently own over 20 hectares spreading over 8 villages – Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Chorey-lès-Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Meursault, Aloxe Corton, and Ladoix – all in the Côte de Beaune and making regional, village, premier crus, and Grand Crus from the famed Corton Hill. Daniel Maillard’s sons Alain and Pascal run Domaine Maillard Père et Fils, with Pascal focusing on winemaking and Alainl on the vineyards." -Importer
