Batard Montrachet Louis Jadot 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is much more reserved on the nose than the 2015 Bienvenues - austere, stony and stoic, gaining intensity after 5-10 minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp line of acidity, a slight bitterness on the back palate but it fans out nicely to a spicy finish, even if it does not quite have the panache of the Bienvenues at the moment." 12/16

  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.
