In 1552, Jean Bourgogne, an ancestor of David Rebourgeon, came to Pommard and through a leasing arrangement with the Abbaye Saint Marguerite in Bouilland, he acquired some vines there. So making great wine from these special lands is not exactly a new concept for the Rebourgeon family. Today, David directs this eight-hectare Pommard domaine with its well regarded holdings - including eight different Premier Crus - in the appellations of Beaune, Pommard and Volnay. Planted entirely in Pinot Noir, the vines are on average over 40 years old, and some parcels were planted over 100 years ago. The trick for David has been to carefully grow and press fruit, naturally concentrated by aged vines, to produce wines of structure but with freshness, verve and softness. And he succeeds brilliantly at this mission, garnering critical praise which grows with each new vintage. As Neal Martin of Vinous recently wrote, "The wines are surfeit with tension and energy and do not short-change in terms of flavor."
