Jacques Morgon 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries, spicecake and herbs, plus a hint of cracked pepper. Spicy, incisive red fruit flavors show a bitter edge and pick up a smoky quality in the mid-palate. Tannins build with air and add definition to the firm, spicy, very persistent finish. This wine will age.

  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.

Red raspberry, rhubarb, and smoked meat pungently scent Chateau des Jacquesandrsquo;s 2009 Morgon cuvee, then come to a saliva-inducing and tartly-invigorating palate andmdash; one of this estateandrsquo;s 2009 that seems to defy the vintage norms andmdash; leading to a vivacious finish in which white pepper, salt, smoked meat, and herbs alternate with sappy, snappy red fruits. There is a hint of extraneous wood resin that needs to integrate, and this is one 2009 that could benefit from putting on a bit of fat andmdash; which might happen andmdash; but is already a delight and sure to remain so for at least 3andndash;4 years

Rich flavors of blackberry pie, apple compote and cherry preserves are accented by anise, nutmeg and vanilla. Bright acidity keeps it fresh, while light tannins frame this balanced red. Drink now through 2015.
