Gevrey Chambertin Louis Jadot 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Allen Meadows, Burghound: " Here too there is a reductive note that renders the nose tough to read. Otherwise there is a brighter and more vibrant mouth feel to the somewhat less concentrated and better delineated flavors that possess good energy though the finish is mildly drying. I suspect that the dryness is due to the abundant gas rather than under-ripe tannins but this didn't show particularly well today, or at least not as well as one might think given how strong a showing the Jadot Gevrey 1ers displayed." 4/17

  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.
