‘Pommard’ Pinot Noir

The pommard clone is dear to me, as that is what my Fathers Q Block from Bien Nacido was from 1992-2006. That wine garnered a lot of attention and helped him be successful. From Pence it is always purple fruit and flower (violets and lilacs, lavender) dominated, along with a strong terroir influnce than I get out of other clones I get from Pence.
