Louis Jadot Pommard Pinot Noir grows in the area of Pommard which is situated between Volnay to the South and Beaune to the North. The quite clayey calcareous soil gives Pommard some quite original qualities such as its deep red black colour with an intense bouquet of blackcurrants and musk.
The cuisine capable of honouring Pommard wine has to be quite spicy with a strong flavour. Best served with roasted salmon, roasted chicken, grilled red meat : beef, lamb chops, osso bucco, stew, ragout, bœuf bourguignon, duck, partridge, quail, deer, young wild boar, teppanyaki beef, mashed potatoes with salted butter, Cîteaux, Mont d’Or.

Aging: 18 months in oak barrels
Awards: 92pts – Wine & Spirits
History of Louis Jadot
It all began with a parcel of vines. And we all know just how important these individual bits of land are in Burgundy. It was with the purchase of the Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules that the story of Maison Louis Jadot began in 1826.
Three decades. That’s the time it took Louis Henri Denis Jadot to found our house, in 1859, and to lay the foundations of a family-owned domaine. He would contribute to the renown of the wines of Burgundy by developing a negotiant business focused on selling the wines in Northern European markets.
The label of Maison Louis Jadot’s wines are characterised by the instantly recognisable image of Bacchus’s head, an image that has become, in many ways, the signature of the house and a symbol of its identity, whatever is in the bottle.
