We were somewhat surprised to learn that Isabelle and Denis Pommier’s organically farmed 16 hectare estate in Chablis (est. 1990) near the village of Poinchy is one of the very few in the region to hand-harvest a significant portion of their production! Although most known for their distinctly mineral and terroir-driven Chablis, they also make a small amount of Bourgogne Rouge, such as the beautiful and energetic “Grain de Survie,’ which is equal parts fruit, floral, and earth.

Approachable yet structured, this classic Chilean Malbec has lots of beautifully intense red fruit flavors followed by a dash black pepper and light touches of oak-derived notes like vanilla and chocolate.
