Louis Jadot Corton-Charlemagne 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Louis Jadot pride themselves on the weight and class of their CortonCharlemagne. The 2006 is exceptionally opulent, with the delicious aromatics ofripe chardonnay fruit underpinned by the classic minerality of this grand cru.Approachable early but with power to age." (Jasper Morris MW, BBR Buyer)

  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.

savory sides to its minerality that will add to the fascination at table and over a decade or more of bottle maturation. Given its price and availability - there are all of 33 barrels worth - this is an indulgence in grand cru pedigree that a significant number of consumers should be able to enjoy
