Louis Jadot Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2008

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 production area for this wine is the whole of Burgundy. The Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir comes from an balanced blend of Côte d'Or, Saône et Loire (Mercurey, Buxy) and Irancy. Côte de Nuits, Saône et Loire and Irancy ill bring deep tannins while Côte de Beaune will bring more fruitiness. The Bourgogne Pinot Noir offers a colour of medium intensity, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet, after several years in the bottle. It is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish. With this wine, you can enjoy grilled or boiled red meats, roasts, mild game, soft cheeses like Camembert and Brie. The Bourgogne Pinot Noir can be kept for 5 years for an average vintage and seven years in good years with small yields.

  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.

We decanted it in advance of an italian meal with my wife's uncle and his girlfriend. My wife does not like a lot of reds, but this one she did. It was soft enough for her, and while not my favorite pinot, I liked it well enough to try again.

This is a classic expression of Burgundian Pinot Noir with a refined, aromatic nose of bright cherry fruit accompanied by hints of vanilla and a crisp iron note that adds complexity and an enjoyable rusticity.
