L.jadot Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2007
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 production area for this wine is the whole of Burgundy. The Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir comes from an balanced blend of Côte d'Or, Saône et Loire (Mercurey, Buxy) and Irancy. Côte de Nuits, Saône et Loire and Irancy ill bring deep tannins while Côte de Beaune will bring more fruitiness. The Bourgogne Pinot Noir offers a colour of medium intensity, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet, after several years in the bottle. It is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish. With this wine, you can enjoy grilled or boiled red meats, roasts, mild game, soft cheeses like Camembert and Brie. The Bourgogne Pinot Noir can be kept for 5 years for an average vintage and seven years in good years with small yields.
I was disappointed. No where near the California Pinot Noir I ha at the same price.
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. The nose was a little weaker than I expected - a little musty. The taste was surprisingly sprightly at first, but mellowed out too quickly. I was not a fan of the lingering alcohol taste, but it didn't turn me off so much that I didn't pour another glass. Good wine for the price.
Excellent Pinot for the price.
Very bland and no where near California or Oregon Pinots.
I was expecting a symphony in my mouth but received a mono AM station modulating a tired tune. It greeted my palate with gentle fruit overpowered by alcohol. The finish brought a pleasant lingering spice which kept me entertained. The wine improved with breathing but not enough to justify the price; this is a ten dollar wine at best.
I had to let this one sit for a while… nose is dusty and tight, normal pinot aromas not quite where I think I would like them the. Small spice, maybe some blackberry on the front. Then some darker fruit plum oak then it was gone… no lasting flavor, flat and dry alcoholic finish… for $14.00 its another miss for me :(
