150 Million Years of History

Clos Marey-Monge sits on top of the Avant-Dheune Valley dejection cone, a geological structure that allows even greater Pinot Noir growing conditions to flourish. The cherished terroir of Pommard, and its 27 identified climats, have been cultivated and carefully preserved for thousands of years by the many protectors of the land. But it is the 150 million year history of the earth and dirt beneath these famed soils that has contributed most to Clos Marey-Monge’s enduring popularity.

Chantrerie

Some of the oldest vines in Clos Marey-Monge, Chantrerie’s 2.41 hectares of marly-clay soils produce a dark, rich and deep Pinot Noir with a sweet palate. Known as the spirit of our vineyard, this old Lady benefits from one of the largest internal surfaces of clay in the Côte d’Or, worthy of a Grand Cru, just behind Simone’s record.

Nicolas-Joseph

Nicolas-Joseph’s 3 hectares are comprised of flat limestone rocks with red clay—yielding a fleshy, complex Pinot Noir with red fruits and sweet, silky tannins. Divided into two parts, Jeunes and Vieilles, this plot located alongside the north-eastern facade of the Château Marey-Monge displays the least calcareous soil structure in the Clos.

Grands Esprits

Grands Esprits 4.81 hectares of large, round, rocky, calcium-rich soils planted between 1980 and 1990 produce a straight Pinot Noir with firm tannins and the potential for long aging. Occupying almost one-quarter of our vineyard’s overall area, the 220 rows of the Grands Esprits plot is the most calcareous area of the Clos Marey-Monge.

75 Rangs

Thousands of years ago, an underground spring flooded the 0.85 hectare of 75 Rangs with minerals. Planted in 1962 and 1964, this plot located at the lowest topographic position in the Clos Marey-Monge benefits from shallow and limestone-rich soil that produces a Pinot Noir rich in minerals with a salty finish.

Micault

Originally planted as an English garden, the 1.29-hectare parcel situated at the foot of Château Micault was eventually transformed into a vineyard. Its vines grow on fine alluvial formations from the Avant-Dheune river and create a fruity Pinot Noir that is enjoyable young.

Émilie

In 2016 a new lady was planted at the furthest eastern point of the vineyard. The composition is a clay-limestone (36% clay) surface with a sandy texture. Stones of rounded gravel and rare pebbles descrease with depth. Inspired by Émilie Marey-Monge, the industrious woman of Château de Pommard, this sacred ground was previously the backbone of our wine’s for more than 60 years.
