“We are thrilled to be working with Château de Pommard, their wines are truly exciting. The undoubted star of the range is the Clos Marey-Monge a single clos Pommard of amazing depth and finesse, however in common with other great names in Burgundy the entire range bears the same hallmarks of outstanding winemaking. We have already received significant interest in the wines and will work closely with the Château to ensure that we can offer an extensive range to all of our customers. We advise customers that would like to buy the wines to make contact with our sales team as soon as possible.” Miles MacInnes – Managing Partner
Jascots was an obvious choice for the Burgundian estate. Both parties are firmly involved in wine education and collaborate closely with the globally recognised Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET). Additionally, sustainability is a key value for both Château de Pommard and Jascots with 85% of the supplier’s portfolio falling in the sustainable category. With the recent organic vineyard certification and biodynamic conversion underway, Château de Pommard and Famille Carabello-Baum’s wines have caught the attention of select hotels, restaurants, and wine bars across France. Today, the wines are available in Paris at Plaza-Athénée, The Ritz Paris, Le Meurice to name a few. With the arrival of Benoit Daury, the recently appointed On-Trade Director, the estate is now broadening its existing strategy internationally.
“Both Château de Pommard and Jascots share the same vision of building business with a long-term perspective, and putting quality, sustainability and education at the heart of our development. We look forward to developing the UK market together!” Benoit Daury, On-Trade Director.
