Jadot Corton Charlemagne 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pineapple, lime, wet stone and hawthorn aromas, with hints of nuts, vanilla, earth and spices; some oakiness yet to be integrated. Superconcentrated, penetrating and backward, with very intense pineapple and crushed stone flavors. This has terrific lemony, stony cut and an inexorable slow-building finish that's quite austere today. The wine comes across as more oaky early because it began with more malic acidity, Lardiere explains, adding that he believes this wine needs at least ten years of bottle aging "before we can understand it," and that it will last longer than the Chevalier-Montrachet...93+." IWC 9/05

  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.

Knockout musky, soil-driven aromas of lime, chicken broth and crushed stone. At once dense and penetrating, with elegant but seriously intense flavors of lime, lemon, powdered stone and mint. Wonderfully light on its feet for a wine with this degree of power and thrust. Great building aftertaste shows superb density and cut. This should age like a red wine, and will be spectacular in 8 or 10 years.(Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar)
