Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques Louis Jadot Premier 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

93-96 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: “Palish medium red. More subdued on the nose than the Estournelles Saint-Jacques but still with exhilarating blood orange lift to the raspberry aroma. Highly concentrated, silky, extremely youthful wine, combining outstanding breadth and inner-mouth perfume and lift. Its very intense, sharply delineated flavors of dark raspberry and crushed stone are given added punch and lift by urgent minerality. This compellingly horizontal, sappy wine finishes with utterly suave tannins and outstanding length, piquing the taste buds on the back end. Premier cru Burgundy does not get much better than this.” 01/17 93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a very composed and detailed bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, a subtle floral note of rose petal and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin and a fine silver bead of acidity. It feels quite linear at the moment, strict and you could say "well behaved," though there is superb depth towards the velvety finish and a persistent minerally aftertaste. This is a very composed, complex Clos Saint-Jacques." 12/16

  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.
