The commune of Pommard produces only red wines, and has no Grands Crus. The Clos de la Commaraine is 10 acres near the village of Pommard, east-facing and situated on deep, well-drained, stony soil. The vineyard is a monopole of Louis Jadot. In winemaking, Pinot Noir grapes are destemmed and fermented in vats for up to one month, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 15 to 18 months.
This rich, masculine wine is typical of Pommard. It should be cellared for at least 5 years before opening and is capable of developing in the bottle for 10 to 15 years.
Serve with well-spiced meats, game and strong cheeses such as Epoisses, Livarot and Pont L’Eveque.
