Domaine Parent is one of the leading properties in Pommard. They are just off the main square in the village centre of Pommard. Pommard is in the Côte de Beaune, the next village south from Beaune, perhaps one of the most famous appellations in the Côte d'Or (Burgundy). Today the property is run by the sisters Anne and Catherine Parent.
Domaine Parent has some 10 hectares of vineyards planted mainly with pinot noir for the red wines and chardonnay for the white wines. They also operate as a négociant, buying grapes from other wine growers, to supplement the production. The négociant business is approximately twice the size as their own vineyards' wine production.
The winemaking is in the hands of Anne Parent. There is a lot of attention to detail. Brapes are hand picked and sorted on a sorting table. Fermentation is done with the natural yeast from the grapes. Some pigeage, punching down, is done. After fermentation the wines are aged for some time in wooden barrels (the Burgundy pièces).
Domaine Parent makes a range of Burgundy wines: from the Bourgogne Blanc (Chardonnay) and Bourgogne Rouge, over village appellation wines from Pommard, Ladoix Serrigny, Monthelie, Volnay and Beaune and a series of premier cru wines from Pommard, as well as grand cru from Corton.
