Domaine Gabriel Billard Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvee Milliane"
This domaine, run by two sisters, Mireille Desmonet and Claudie Jobard, makes lovely wines in Pommard. The Cuvée Milliane is named after their grandmother, and comes from a 1/2-hectare parcel in the town of Pommard, with vines of more than 55 years of age. A gentle fermentation using native yeasts results in a charming wine, with a bright cherry note and a silky finish. This drinks much more like a village Pommard than like a simple Bourgogne Rouge. It is bright and fresh, with a bit of grip on the finish and lovely character. And thanks to our direct import, it is a terrific value. Try this wine, and you will see why we are excited about our relationship with this domaine!
