Jean Luc Joillot Pommard is a firm, full-bodied wine that is nevertheless exceptionally round and generous, with a soft, fruity depth of character and a bouquet suggestive of raspberries.
The cuisine capable of honoring Pommard wine has to be quite spicy with a strong flavor: hare, pheasant, entrecote steak in wine, or cheeses like Epoisses, Livarot, and Pont l’Eveque.
Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
