Louis Jadot Grands Epenots 1er Cru 2017
The village of Pommard is situated between Volnay to the South and Beaune to the North. Pommard is on a slope, between 240 and 380 metres, facing east or south-east. Pommard can only be red. There are no grand cru wines. The « Les Epenots » vineyard consists of two parcels : « Les Petits Epenots » and « Les Grands Epenots ». The vineyard is bordering Beaune next to the Premier Cru Les Boucherottes and Les Epenottes. The word Epenots comes from the word "épines", meaning that these vineyards used to be surrounded with bushes full of spines.
The soil consisting of limetone and clay produces wines with a nice deep red colour and a nose of various red fruits. Some years of aging will help developing aromas of leather and underwood. The Grands Epenots wines are very delicate because the soil is slightly less wet than the soil of Epenots.
