Chassagne Montrachet Caillerets Louis Jadot 94jg Premier 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Caillerets from Maison Jadot is absolutely stunning! The deep, pure and refined nose soars from the glass in a blaze of pear, lemon zest, chalky minerality, a touch of almond, spring flowers, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nascently complex, with a superb core of fruit, excellent soil inflection, racy acids and laser-like focus on the very, very long and classic finish. A great, great bottle of Caillerets...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.

Vintage: 2006 02/11/2011

The Jadot 2006 Chassagne-Montrachet Caillerets (from a single, large source with old vines) reveals pear, litchi, and chalk dust on the nose; impressive density on the palate; and finishes with toasted nuts, crushed stones, sweet pear and peach fruit, and a hint of heat.
