Made from purchased grapes, the 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Grands Epenots (Maison Louis Jadot) wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet berries, warm spices, rich soil tones and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with a charming core of fruit, lively acids and refined tannins, this is very promising.

The 2019 Pommard Grands Epenots Premier Cru has a very expressive and almost Volnay-like bouquet of ebullient red cherry, raspberry, violet and blood orange aromas. The palate is very well balanced, offering succulent red berry fruit and a fine bead of acidity. Fleshy yet structured, as you would expect from this vintage. Very smooth on the finish. This is a noble Côte de Beaune from Jadot and maybe their best cuvée from that part of Burgundy.

The commune of Pommard produces only red wines, and has no Grands Crus. Grands Epenots is one of two parcels under the name Les Epenots, situated in the north of the commune on 62 acres of clay and calcareous soil. The word Epenots comes from the French épines, referring to the spiny bushes that once surrounded the vineyard. In winemaking, Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in tanks for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured for 12 to 15 months in oak barrels before bottling.
