Meursault Perrieres Louis Jadot Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres comes from two sources. There is a touch more exoticism on the nose compared to the Genevrieres with seductive almond and coconut scents informing the citrus fruit. The palate is voluminous in the mouth, understated at first but then that mineral -wave- crashes upon the shore. Long with a nutty finish, this is a sublime Perrieres that will surely repay cellaring...90-92" WA 12/13 "Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied wine, traditionally vinified in oak to yield a well structured cuvée which balances firmness with ripe fruit flavours. Notes of oak and vanilla in the bouquet are confirmed on the palate and carry into a sustained finish." -Winery Note

  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.
