The wines of Jadot are very typical Burgundies and almost all are excellent examples of their type. With long macerations and wild yeast fermentations, the intent is to bring the consumer as close as possible to the vines. The sheer size of Jadot makes the high quality here all the more impressive, though with size comes scale. For example, in 1995 Jadot created the cooper Cadus to ensure a consistent, high-quality supply of oak barrels for aging.
One of the great things about 2009 and a Maison like Jadot is that in these warm years, vineyards with less than ideal positioning can often excel. What is lean and austere in a classic vintage can be lush and well-balanced in a vintage like 2009. It’s a vintage where the values wines can really shine!
