Jadot Chambertin Clos de Beze 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Medium red. Pungent, highly perfumed nose offers minerals, dried rose, licorice and pepper; very showy today due to the early malo. Then juicy and pure, with superb energy and precision giving the wine a penetrating quality rare for the year. The tannins are covered by intense fruit on the very long finish, which features strong spicy and floral notes and a medicinal reserve. Lardiere compared this wine to a '59...94-97" IWC 1/11 "If I have had a better young vintage of Jadot Clos de Bèze than the 2009, then I cannot recall it. This is a profound example of the vintage, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of red and black cherries, cassis, plums, smoke, coffee, raw cocoa, beautifully complex soil tones and a discreet framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and utterly refined, with a great core of fruit, ripe, very fine-grained 129 tannins and simply stunning length and grip on the seamless finish. A great, great vintage for this consistently superb Clos de Bèze. 2025-2100. 98." John Gilman a View from the Cellar 1/11

  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.
