Chambertin Louis Jadot 94 Jg 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Chambertin at Louis Jadot is purchased fruit, and this is often a touch behind the Clos de Bèze and the Chapelle for that reason and can be just a bit sauvage out of the blocks in some vintages. However, the elegance of 2011 has produced an utterly suave young Chambertin, and this is going to be a stunning wine at its peak of maturity. The young and very refined nose offers up scents of cherries, red plums, nutskin, incipient meatiness, coffee, a gloriously complex base of soil, mustard seed and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a great core of fruit, laser-like focus, ripe, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, complex and precise finish. Superb wine...94+" JG 01/13

  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.
