Louis Jadot Mâcon Rouge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. The Mâconnais region of Burgundy is in the Saône et Loire district and next to southernmost Beaujolais. The landscape is meridional rather than Burgundian in character, with gently rolling hills and grasslands in mixed cultivation, which become pronounced slopes to the south. Red Mâcon is made mainly form Gamay grapes, with a small proportion of Pinot Noir. It gives more delicacy to the wine. With a deep ruby colour, the Mâcon reveals aromas of small red fruits with a hint of spice. Just the right balance of tannin gives a wine which is fruity, easy to drink, well rounded in the mouth and with strong taste of earth. This wine will easily accompany the whole meal whether it is charcuterie, snails, roast meat or mild cheeses. This wine will be very nice drunk young but will also be able to age 3-5 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity.

  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.
