Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded Maison Louis Jadot in 1859. The négociant house expanded rapidly with a focus on quality and today is one of the most highly respected and well-known producers in Burgundy. Robert Parker states in his book that Jadot "is turning out some of the finest wines in Burgundy." Pommard is a wine known for it's strength and longevity. Grapes for this 2011 Pommard are harvested by hand. Then the grapes undergo a thorough selection process to ensure that only the healthiest grapes are used. By and large, complete destemming is practiced. A long, 3 to 4 week maceration is followed by aging in oak barrels for 12-15 months. This wine was a 95 Point Platinum Award winner in the 2015 Critics Challenge Competition. They said "Still youthful and tight four years after the vintage, this Pommard from Jadot speaks well for the quality that can be achieved from a village wine in Burgundy these days. Jadot, of course, is one of the top negociants and has a long and successful track record. This vintage shows notes of plum and black cherry, with firm tannins and an attractive note of earth on the finish."
