Batard Montrachet Louis Jadot 96 Jg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The fruit for the Jadot Bâtard-Montrachet all hail from the Puligny side of the vineyard. The 2010 Bâtard from Maison Jadot is stunning and as magical a bottling of this great vineyard as I can ever recall tasting from the domaine. The deep, powerful and primary nose soars from the glass in a blaze of apple, peach, tangerine, incipient notes of butter, a gentle touch of leesiness, a great base of soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and absolutely rock solid at the core, with great cut and focus and huge energy on the poised, soil-driven and extremely long finish. A great bottle of Bâtard-Montrachet...96+" JG 12/11 This is also quite reduced and thus impossible to fairly evaluate the aromatics. By contrast, there is plenty of vibrancy and bracing acidity that has a touch of malic tang to it, shaping the borderline massive flavors that possess almost painful intensity before terminating in a hugely persistent finish. Like the Corton-Charlemagne, this is extremely primary and also a bit awkward but for all that, it still appears to possess outstanding potential… 92-95 BH 6/12 "Jadot’s 2010 Batard-Montrachet, from the Puligny side, boasts stunning minerality. Intense notes of crushed rocks and slate caress the palate. The Batard is all nuance and class. There is a level of pure delineation and crystalline definition here that is simply striking. Today the aromas and flavors are quite bright, but the wine should fill out nicely and take on richer tones as it ages. Over the time I followed it, the Batard opened up beautifully...96+" WA 8/12 "Bright, pale green-yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon oil, white pepper, wild herbs and crushed rock. Intensely flavored and suave, with a silky texture and a light touch to its lemon, stone and wild herb flavors. Wonderfully fine-grained Batard from the Puligny side of the cru...94" IWC 09/12

  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.
