The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. For the past 150 years Louis Jadot has continued as one of the great names of Burgundy and has gained international reputation for its superb red and white Burgundy wines. Louis Jadot is not only one of the largest producers of estate Burgundies of the Cote d'Or, it is one of the most celebrated exporters of premium Burgundies, owning close to 140 acres of vineyards from 24 of the most prestigious sites in Burgundy.
The commune of Pommard produces only red wines, and has no Grands Crus. Grands Epenots is one of two parcels under the name Les Epenots, situated in the north of the commune on 62 acres of clay and calcareous soil. The word Epenots comes from the French epines, referring to the spiny bushes that once surrounded the vineyard. In winemaking, Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in tanks for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured for 12 to 15 months in oak barrels before bottling. Pair with red meat, game and mature cheeses.
