The slopes of this vineyard are relatively shallow. The Beauroy climat comprises the Beauroy, Cote de Savant and Troesmes sub-climats, which are themselves made up of several named vineyards. Pommier's Beauroy is sourced from the Troesmes sub-climat.

The 2016 Chablis Troesmes 1er Cru has a pretty and well defined bouquet with scents of flint, white flowers and a touch of orange pith. The palate is well defined with a fine bead of acidity, discrete tropical notes such as white peach and passion fruit that do not obstruct the mineral core to flourish on the finish. Denis Pommier has made an excellent Chablis from one of its lesser-known Premier Crus. Tasted blind at the BIVB Chablis tasting.
