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.

Really good French Chardonnay. Crisp, clean, hints of slate, lemon chiffon and lemon peel. Very nice acidity and a decent finish.

Alluring nose of raw beef blood and sweet perfumey floral and some nail polish and notes of slightly sour red fruit. In the mouth balanced and well-integrated elements of acid, bitterish nut, and ripe dry slightly bitter and smokey tannic sour red and dark fruit (cranberry, blackberry, dark cherry). Finish of mocha-coffee and hints of wood and mineral and faint fruit. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium plus. Delicious.

Big funk and game on the nose. Opens up like a Syrah. Graphite, black and blue fruit, some plum, violets. IT's burly and tannic on the palate, feeling crunchy. Loads of black fruit with strong blueberry and blackberry flavors. Strong acid. Big and complex. Unexpected and very nice! Not like the usual Gamay at all. 3/8/12

I was unfamiliar with this wine until friends came over for dinner and brought a bottle along. After the first sip, I wished I was serving steamed mussels. It would be a great fit! It's got a very smooth, well-balanced bouquet and a subtle, but distinct bite. One reviewer complained of its sharpness, but if you don't want any bite, you should drink a chablis. The wine paired beautifully with the gorgonzola cheese and cucumber/humus spread w/ tomato, black greek olives, and feta cheese and carried us through the antipasto salad w/ mozarella and salami with a splash. I found it delightful.That you can get such a quality French wine for modest price makes the 2009 Jadot Chardonnay Bourgognie a wine you won't be afraid or ashamed to share with friends time and time again.

Just named to the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2010!! Moulin-a-Vent is the king of Cru Beaujolais and this single estate boasts almost 70 prime vineyard acres on five different lots. Louis Jadot purchased the Chateau des Jacques in 1996 and since has producing estate bottled wines from these vineyards that is truly oustanding. The Wine Advocate recently rated this 2009, 91-92 points saying "Representing a blend from all five of their sites but favoring Champ de Cour and Carquelin, Chateau des Jacques’s 2009 Moulin-a-Vent smells of black and red raspberry, with heliotrope and lily overtones. With a striking and surprising sense of seamless oily-richness to its sweetly, exuberantly berry-brimmed palate impression, this reveals satisfying low-toned salted meat stock character that persists all the way through a lingering, lip-smacking finish. I suspect this already exceptional value will gain detail and finesse and be worth following for 4-6 years." Don't miss it.

WA 91-92pts, WS 90pts #94 on Wine Spectators Top 100 - Winemaker Notes - The Louis Jadot Moulin Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age.

Dunkle, rubinrote Farbe, kräftig und würzig in der Nase, kraftvoll und vollmundig, mit elegant eingebetteten Tanninen, langer Abgang. Verfeinert sich noch mit den Jahren.

This vinification process will allow nice fresh redcurrant and raspberry fruit character. This Beaujolais Rose can be drunk quite chilled as an aperitif.
