The 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.
More moderate though hardly discreet wood surround 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. (91-93)/2030+
Aromas of earthy red and black fruits, rich soil, woodsmoke and a gentle framing of new oak are the prelude to an ample, concentrated palate with ripe, refined tannins and a long and umami-laden finish. Very elegant for a young Pommard. Drinking Window 2018 - 2060
(from the same source as the Epenots): A bit darker red than the Epenots. Much more subdued on the nose, offering hints of dark cherry and licorice. At once dense and vinous, projecting more fruit sweetness and oak influence on the palate. Deeper and more tannic than the Epenots, which is more accessible today and will probably drink earlier.
