Grands Echezeaux Louis Jadot 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru has a much more complex and nuanced bouquet compared to the 2014 Echézeaux, with lively red berry fruit intermingling with minerals. It gains intensity in the glass while retaining its composure. The palate is grippy on the entry with good density -- a compact but delineated Grands Echézeaux that will require bottle age. It is more masculine than others I have tasted, but it has the body and breeding you look for." Issue# 222, 12/15 92-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Copious amounts of wood and menthol push the otherwise spicy and fresh aromas of dark currant, plum and floral scents to the background. There is outstanding volume to the delicious and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract, all wrapped in an overtly structured and austere finale. Like a number of wines in the range, this too is absolutely going to require at least a decade's worth of patience." Issue# 62, 04/16 91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media: "Bright, dark red. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry and licorice come across as more oaky than the Echézeaux. Very concentrated but tightly wound, with black cherry and dark berry flavors showing medicinal and saline qualities. Powerful but still a bit brutal on the finish; these tannins will need long cellaring to soften. Very strong wine even if it can't match Jadot's Echézeaux for class or perfume." 01/16

  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.
