Fleurie Chateau des Jacques Louis Jadot 92js 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92 Points, James Suckling: "Lovely salty and dried-berry character with undertones of cherries. Floral and beautiful. Medium body, bright acidity and a long finish. Cool wine. Drink now." 2/17 92 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Ripe cherry, dark berries and pungent flowers on the expressive nose. Lush and creamy in texture, displaying impressive lift and appealing sweetness to the spice-tinged cherry liqueur and boysenberry flavors. Seamless and appealingly sweet, delivering a very long, juicy finish shaped by sneaky tannins that fold smoothly into the sappy fruit." 8/16

  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.
