The Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) Pommard is only used for red wine with Pinot noir as the main grape variety. There are no Grand Cru vineyards within Pommard, but several highly regarded Premier Cru vineyards. The AOC was created in 1937. There are no grand crus in Pommard. However the top premier crus are very highly prized. Very occasionally the title of Pommard Premier Cru will appear on a label without a vineyard designation. This usually denotes that fruit from more than one premier cru climat has been combined. “Premier Cru” is a common term seen on the wine label of a French wine bottle. It roughly translates to “first growth” and indicates the superior terroir of a vineyard. The finer terroir of a Premier Cru vineyard, in turn, indicates a wine with a distinguished complexity.
