Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot 90 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2013 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is very closed on the nose, a little resinous at first with honeysuckle and jasmine notes surfacing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a waxy-textured entry, a fine thread of acidity and a weighty, concentrated, lightly honeyed finish. This is a fine Corton-Charlemagne, although it is no match for either the Montrachet or the Chevalier-Montrachet that preceded it. " WA 12/14

  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.
