"Outstanding! Here the wood has been completely absorbed and is effectively invisible, which allows the free expression of the ripe cranberry, strawberry and raspberry aromas that introduce textured, detailed and energetic medium-plus bodied flavors that culminate in a palate drenching and impressively long finish. Terrific and fashioned in a more refined style than is typical for Grands Epenots. Lovely juice." (Apr 2009)

"Like the corresponding Clos de la Commaraine, Jadot's 2006 Pommard Grands Epenots displays unusual energy and brightness for a Pommard as well as a deep, smoky, ferrous pungency. But here there is deep, marrowy richness and a more overt sense of extract and tannic structure, even though it is allied to lift and dynamic. This is a wine that will offer you something to chew on in both senses of that word over the next 6-8 years. " (Dec 2009)

"A densely flavored red, featuring cherry, berry, earth and spice flavors, a smooth texture and firm tannins. Though a bit chewy, this is also balanced and lingers nicely." (Jun 2009)
