The Estate and the Vineyard
The Domaine Roblot Marchand, located in the village of Pommard in Burgundy, France, is a family-owned winery that spans approximately 10 hectares of vineyards, with a strong presence in the Pommard appellation. Under the direction of Pierre Marchand, a passionate winemaker, the estate has become a model of quality and respect for Burgundian winemaking traditions since he took over the family business in 2001. The domaine is renowned for its sustainable viticulture practices, implementing environmentally friendly techniques to preserve the quality of its soils and vines. This approach contributes to the domaine's reputation, both for the quality of its products and its commitment to sustainability and preserving its terroir.
The Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru 'Les Rouges du Dessus' from Domaine Roblot-Marchand embodies the charm and prestige of one of the world's most renowned wine terroirs. This appellation, exclusively dedicated to Pinot Noir, is located in the prestigious Côte de Nuits, between the villages of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vougeot. The premier cru "Les Rouges du Dessus" is nestled on the hill overlooking Vosne-Romanée, in the northwest of the appellation. The proximity to the legendary vineyards of the Romanée-Conti estate attests to the exceptional quality of this terroir.
This exceptional wine is crafted from Pinot Noir grapes grown at altitudes exceeding 300 meters, on soils rich in clay marls and limestone. After harvest, the grapes undergo traditional vinification methods, with maceration lasting 12 days in cement tanks. Subsequently, the wine is aged for 16 months in small French oak barrels, of which 30% are new, allowing the wine to develop its full complexity and elegance.
