Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is striking. An expressive, open bouquet leads to expressive fruit in this large-scaled, impeccable Corton-Charlemagne. Hints of crushed rocks and slate appear on the mid-palate, propelling the wine towards a rich, explosive finish. The Corton-Charlemagne impresses for its dazzling purity and exceptional harmony. The oak is beautifully integrated. ..96" WA 9/11 "This elegant wine is packed with peach and apple flavors. Intense, with excellent balance and poise, building on the palate to a long, lemon- and spice-filled aftertaste...94" WS 08/12 "The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is also superb on both the nose and palate. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a classy blend of pears, apples, white flowers, chalky stoniness, a touch of fresh nutmeg and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and reserved, with a great core of fruit, brisk acids and stunning length and grip on the closed and very soil-driven finish. 2016-2040. 94."

  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.
