Louis Jadot Pommard 2016
Louis Jadot Pommard is a firm, full-bodied wine that is nevertheless exceptionally round and generous, with a soft, fruity depth of character and a bouquet suggestive of raspberries.
The cuisine capable of honoring Pommard wine has to be quite spicy with a strong flavor: hare, pheasant, entrecote steak in wine, or cheeses like Epoisses, Livarot, and Pont l'Eveque.

Representing some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot Noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Côte de Beaune—along with Volnay—that is recognized for its impressive Pinot Noir. While it can’t boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.
Les Pézerolles, Les Épenots, Clos des Épeneaux, Les Chanlins, Les Jarolières, Les Fremiers and particularly Les Rugiens are among the most outstanding Premiers Crus.
The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand some time in the bottle to reach their peak.
