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.

About the Grape

Pinot Noir
In France, makes a silky, deceptively powerful wine of elegant, complex aromas and subtle, red fruit flavors, with earthy, floral, mushroom and mineral notes. In California, shows ripe, sweet characters.
