Louis Jadot Pommard Epenots 2015
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Epenots has a spicy, quite complex bouquet of red cherries, black plum, kirsch and hints of brown spice, quite involving and certainly a level up from the Grands Epenots. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp and crunchy in the mouth with very fine Pommard expression towards the structured, masculine finish. This is a superb Pommard from Louis Jadot that should give 15-20 years of drinking pleasure, possibly more. Drink Date: 2018-2038.
BurghoundMore moderate though hardly discreet wood surrounds the liqueur-like aromas of red raspberry, lilac, warm earth and soft floral scents. The voluminous middle weight flavors possess a pliant, round and relatively seductive mid-palate that contrasts considerably with the powerful, dusty and notably firm finish that delivers outstanding persistence. This won't win any awards for refinement but it is impressively constituted and thus patience recommended.
