Louis Jadot Grand Echezeaux 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A very spicy nose evidences notes of clove, anise, soy and smoke as well as blue fruit and violet aromas, all trimmed in generous wood that can also be found on the rich, full, detailed, lush and layered big-bodied flavors that are more powerful than those of the Ech and exhibit an intensity that does a slow but sure build to an explosive finish. I like this a lot as the quality of the raw materials is first rate and while it`s presently carrying more wood than I can get excited about, it shouldn't be a problem absorbing it in time.

  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.
