Jadot Nuits St Georges 2009
This wine is available for EN PRIMEUR purchase ONLY. Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. The Nuits-Saint-Georges A.C. wines are produced on land delimited by the parishes of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux-Prissey. The soils are basically composed of limestone and marl. A perfect exposure to the east gives the capacity to produce splendid wines. As a result, Maison Louis Jadot produces a deeply coloured powerful, full bodied Nuits-Saint-Georges of intense colour. It develops ripe, robust fruit flavours and nuances of oak in the bouquet. It will accompany red wine sauces, marinated or roasted game, medium tasting cheeses.
