Jadot Volnay Premier Cru Clos des Chenes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"I have been a big fan of the last several vintages of Maison Jadot’s Clos des Chênes and the 2010 is the finest of the last several years. The nose is deep, pure and utterly classic in its mélange of dark berries, cassis, coffee bean, a great base of soil tones, woodsmoke, a touch of violet and a lovely base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very refined on the attack, with a sappy core, stunning transparency, utterly polished tannins, great focus and nascent complexity and impressive grip on the very long and tangy finish. A beautiful wine...94" JG 12/11 "Sweet Spot Outstanding: A mildly toasty nose of red and black raspberry, wet stone and a touch of forest floor slides gracefully into rich, powerful and impressively well-concentrated middle weight plus flavors that evidence an intense minerality on the explosively long, firm, tension-filled and exceptionally serious finish. This is a relatively big wine even by the typical standards of Clos des Chênes which is well-known for creating the biggest wines in Volnay. This is most impressive but not just for its striking size and weight but also for its grace and impeccable balance...91-93" BH 04/12

  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.

A mildly toasty nose of red and black raspberry wet stone and a touch of forest floor slides gracefully into rich powerful and impressively well-concentrated middle weight plus flavors that evidence an intense minerality on the explosively long firm tension-filled and exceptionally serious finish. This is a relatively big wine even by the typical standards of Clos des Chênes which is well-known for creating the biggest wines in Volnay. This is most impressive but not just for its striking size and weight but also for its grace and impeccable balance. Burghound.

Good bright medium red. Very ripe aromas of tobacco and smoky minerality. Larger-scaled than the Clos de la Barre with flavors of medicinal black cherry licorice and wild mint. More tannic too even a bit dusty and tough but finishes with sneaky persistence. This should evolve slowly and last well. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
