Clos St Denis Jadot 1993

Member Review by schellbe:

This is Brown Derby closeout from a while back (9/8/98). We drank this on a ski week over spring break (3/11/09) with Duck Montmorency. This was a lovely wine and a nice combination with the sweetness of the sauce and fatiness of the duck. Elegant with spicy Pinot Noir flavors. definitely not full-bodied, as in CA Pinot Noir, but plenty of fruit, although light on the palate without being thin or vapid. This is what Red Burgundy is all about, fresh and clean with good fruit without being imposing or alcoholic. Grand Cru Burgundy is a treat.

  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.
