Medium-to-dark ruby-colored and boasting dark cherry, blueberry, and toasty oak aromas, the Pommard is a masculine, structured, robust and medium-to-full-bodied wine. Ripe red fruits and Asian spices can be found in this delicious offering's flavor profile. Drink it over the next 4 years. The score, on a range and in parentheses, indicates that the wine was tasted from barrel.

"I am in love with this vintage's purity and its touch of tension," said Pierre-Henri Gagey, Maison Louis Jadot's director. Jacques Lardiere, this negociant house's talented winemaker, shares Gagey's enthusiasm for the 1996s, feeling they beautifully reflect their respective terroirs.

Lardiere bled (a technique of removing the watery juice of a light pressing to increase concentration) many of the 1996s, "but never more than 10%," and performed a 28 to 35 day cuvaison in order to extract a maximum amount of flavor, color, and aromas while softening the tannins. These wines will neither be fined nor filtered prior to bottling.
