Domaine Louis Jadot Chambertin Clos de Beze 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Louis Jadot Clos de Bèze is very, very close in quality to the brilliant 2010 that I tasted last year. The nose is deep, stunning and quite reserved in profile, offering up scents of black cherries, cassis, espresso, black minerality, herbs, grilled meat and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and totally suave, with superb mid-palate depth, ripe and classy tannins and outstanding length and grip on the nascently complex and aristocratic finish. A magical wine in the making and another 2011 Jadot wine I would love to be around to sample next to its 2010 counterpart when the two are fully mature!...96" JG 01/13 There is also enough oak influence to notice though not enough to materially detract from the high-toned and overtly spicy red currant, cherry and plum suffused nose. There is a lovely minerality to the supple, forward and refined middle weight plus flavors that possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel before culminating in a long, powerful, concentrated and palate drenching finish. While not truly a wine of finesse in the same sense as a fine Chambolle or Volnay, this is relatively subtle as the supporting tannins have the same fine grain as the best of these 2011s. (93-95)/2023+BH

  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.
