Isabelle et Dennis Pommier
The Chablis is one of the most famous and appreciated wine regions in the world. The cool climate and especially the special soil provide wines with a striking freshness and minerality. This ancient Kimmeridge soil consists of a mixture of clay, lime and fossil shellfish. Isabelle and Denis Pommier cherish this unique soil in Chablis, where they have owned vineyards since 1990. They started with 2 hectares, on which the family grew grapes whose juice was sold to other winemakers. In the following years they planted vines in the Chablis and the Petit Chablis. With their first own wine, in 1994, they immediately won the Concours des Vins de Chablis.
The vineyard property has now been expanded to 16 hectares in the Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis premier cru appellations. With this size it is still a real family domain. Pommier works with respect for nature and is in conversion to organic. The wines are pure with the beautiful mineral and steel notes that are so specific to Chablis, but also juicy and round in taste due to the clay-rich soil. Both in France (eg the Guide Hachette) and at an international level (eg Robert Parker) the wines are regularly awarded. Parker calls Pommier one of the Chablis houses that is undergoing the most spectacular development.
