We got a couple of great Burgundies at great prices...(in stock at Forsyth)
2006 Jadot Pommard Epenots...$44.99
(Wine Advocate's suggested price is $58)
"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."

2006 Jadot Pommard Rugiens....$53.99
(Wine Advocate's suggested price $70)
Corton-like in its emphasis on chalky, stony and smoky mineral notes - even in the nose - Jadot's 2006 Pommard Rugiens acquires its striking richness and sweetness in large part from marrow-like meatiness rather than overt fruits and berries, but strawberry and quince seem to waft through this like ethereally sweet essences. The texture here is uncannily creamy, despite an overall effect that's vivacious and dynamic in its interplay of fruit distillates with myriad carnal and mineral nuances. I'm reminded a bit ("sacrilege!" some will cry) of certain great Wachau Gruner Veltliner by the tactile sense of ferrous and stony minerality as well as this Pommard's almost white-wine like balance and singular refreshment. Like me, you may well never have tasted a Pinot like this before, and will be itching to put it to work at table over the next 8-10 years. The 2005 is dramatically different, but the charm that I wrote about that wine lacking is what this 2006 has in spades; and compelled to rank them, I find them evenly matched.
