louis-jadot-2008-pommardA wine of consolation this – I just (with sadness) turned down an invitation to the Paulée de Meursault on the 21st November – well I am already there three days next week and two days the week after…

Anyway, the Antonin Guyon was not so bad – so let’s try something a little more ‘middle of the road‘…

2008 Louis Jadot, Pommard
This wine showed two personalities; day 1 it was a little non-descript on the nose; rounder and sweeter than the Guyon Chambolle but less impact or dimension – here was a club to the rapier of the Guyon. Day 2 and I’m much more impressed with this; the nose has opened with a slightly warm and sweet core but coupled to creamy flashes and top notes of violets – nice! There also seems a bit more depth to the palate, pretty, higher-toned red fruit and a slowly lingering finish on very good but not bright acidity. There is a hint of grain to the low-key tannin. If I’m totally honest, this cuvée can be a bit expensive, but here is a wine that rewards your investment – on day 2 anyway!
Rebuy – Yes
