Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

TP 94
Tasting Panel
Pinot Noir grown on high-clay, calcareous soils underwent a long maceration and aged 10 months in French oak and stainless steel followed by six months in bottle. Aromas of sage, herbs, and forest leaves create a savory nose while spiced-cranberry and cherry-coffee notes emerge under an earthy tonality. A generously endowed red with big, dry tannins.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This has a potent black-cherry core, but it takes time to access it. Instead, the wine delivers a briny green-olive character and a buzz of tannins at first. As it opens, the fruit tones grow floral, lovely and lasting. This demands several years of cellar time to show itself more completely.
BH 90
Burghound.com
More moderate wood treatment frames an airy and admirably pure mix of red and blue pinot fruit, cassis and floral hints. There is a lovely intensity to the mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess an attractively sleek mouth feel while displaying good power on the ever-so-mildly rustic finish that is notably firm.

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.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
