Chapelle Chambertin Louis Jadot 94jg 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Chapelle-Chambertin from Maison Jadot is exceptional, offering up a refined bouquet of red and black cherries, a bit of pomegranate, gamebirds, a beautifully complex base of soil, a touch of nutskin, fresh herbs and a judicious framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a sappy core, very refined tannins, superb focus and great length and grip on the young and very classy finish. This will be a terrific bottle of Chapelle, but it will need at least a dozen years to really hit its apogee...94" JG 01/13

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.

This is also sufficiently reduced that it is hard to read the nose but it would appear that the underlying fruit is notably ripe. There is an elegant mouth feel to the mineral-driven and admirably pure medium-bodied flavors that possess outstanding depth and length and the very firmly structured finish. This is a beautiful effort but note that it would best be purchased only by the very patient. Burghound.

Bright full medium red. Knockout nose shows an almost candied character to the aromas of strawberry cherry dark berries lavender menthol and Indian spices. Dense suave and juicy with a distinctly silky texture to the broad flavors of red fruits menthol and spices. Utterly seamless suave classically dry Chapelle with outstanding energy and definition. Still tight today but the wine s fine-grained tannins and superb breadth and length suggest that it will make a great bottle a decade hence. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
