Louis Jadot Pommard 2014
This is the domaine’s excellent base wine coming from 26 acres of vines in earlier maturing plots (while named the son of the wine below, this does not come from the same vineyard—it is simply made in the same spirit). The soil runs from 10 to 16 inches deep and the granite bedrock is metamorphic gneiss full of mica and quartz.

Wine EnthusiastA blend of grapes from different growers, this is a structured, firm wine. It has a core of drying tannins as well as the bright fruitiness of the vintage. As it develops, that fruit will grow richer and fuller yet always maintaining a crisp edge. Drink from 2019.
Wine SpectatorA red with substance, featuring chunky tannins that frame the cherry, earth and sanguine flavors. Shows sweet fruit and concentration, with fine balance and a long aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2029. 3,300 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pommard Villages, which may include the deselected fruit from Pommard la Commaraine, has a sweet, juicy and simple bouquet. The palate is sweet and supple, quite rounded, a little rustic with a chewy redcurrant and cranberry finish.
