2016 Violot Guillemard Bourgogne Maisons Dieu

2016 Violot Guillemard Bourgogne Maisons Dieu


From a single lieu dit, les Maisons Dieu, that was once classified as a Pommard villages. This should be yet another tremendous single parcel Bourgogne value, a category that I champion with aplomb. Value hounds should get some of each Bourgogne, and thank me later….In their words: “The name of Maison-Dieu is linked to the existence of a building that welcomed the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela and acted as hospice that cared for the sick. This house would have been abandoned in the 17th century because of the proximity of the Hospices de Beaune. This parcel of vines in the Burgundy appellation is in the territory of the commune of Pommard. It is planted on the edge of the Pommard Village appellations, and was sold until 1937-1938, the date of the classification of regional appellations, villages, 1er Cru and Grand Cru, in the Pommard appellation.”

“”(Maison Dieu is the name of an actual lieu-dit situated in Pommard but Violot chooses to employ the term cuvĂ©e anyway; in the period prior to 1937 this well-situated parcel was declared as Pommard rather than Bourgogne). Reduction currently dominates the underlying fruit but there is both good freshness and verve to the delicious, round and almost velvety middle weight flavors that possess unusually good power and length along with fine depth. There is a trace of warmth but overall, this boxes well above its weight and is highly recommended. (87-89)/2021+” Allen Meadows —–> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention.”
