1978 Jaboulet-Vercherre Pommard "Clos de la Commaraine"

SKU #1119844 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This old line firm, established in the Rhône Valley in 1842 spread its operation to Burgundy with the opening of its cellars in Beaune in 1920. I agree with Europe's most famous and prolific wine writer, Dutchman Hubrecht Duijker, that because of their Rhône origins, this frim's wines tend to be impressively colored, alcoholic, and full.

K&L Notes

A premier cru vineyard of 3.75 hectares just north of the village of Pommard. A monopole (single producer making wines from the vines) owned in the 1960's by the winemaking and négociant firm of Jaboulet-Vercherre who produced this wine. This vineyard was a favorite of Thomas Jefferson who really delighted in the 1785 vintage as recounted by John R. Hailman: "Much later, when he was president, and even in his retirement some thirty-five years later, Jefferson still recalled fondly Parent's Comarenne, the red which he spelled 'Caumartin' in his 1787 cellar book." (Thomas Jefferson on Wine, pg 94-95) In recent years Domaine Louis Jadot has taken over the vineyard and now produces the "Clos de La Commaraine".
