Jadot Chardonnay 2012

Member Review by 40somethinglife:

Looking at the label you would think this is a very serious slightly and stuffy wine. A surprise with this Chardonnay is that it is incredibly clean, forward-looking and really fun to drink. The Louis Jadot Chardonnay 2012 is rich in aromas of honeydew melon and has the charms of a warm and buttery Chardonnay. Don’t be fooled, while this wine does have characteristics of the classic Chardonnay, it is deliciously vibrant and smooth making it a very easy and drinkable wine with tastes of dry apricots, creamy pear and honey giving it a really modern rather than old world French taste.

  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.
