Grands Echezeaux Louis Jadot 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

93-95 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Firm reduction flattens the nose though there is a lovely sense of both freshness and tension to the colossally constituted flavors that drench the palate with sap that once again renders the notably firm tannic spine all but invisible for the moment on the impressively persistent if slightly warm finish. I suspect that in time the structure will become more apparent but this is one concentrated, indeed massive GE, that isn't elegant but does avoid rusticity." 4/17 91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright, full red. Dark berry aromas are dominated in the early going by a strong note of licorice pastille. Black fruit flavors show a juicy quality but are very tightly wound and medicinal, even a bit muscular for a young Grands-Echézeaux. I find the tannins a bit tough and dry. Rough going today, and not showing the normal elegance of this grand cru." 1/17

  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.
