Le Vaucrain-Cote de Nuits Red Burgundy Louis Jadot Cote de Nuits 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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 Côte de Nuits is the northern of the two districts of the Côte d’Or, stretching from Marsannay to Corgoloin. The Pinot Noir vineyards, on average are 10 years old and produce a deep coloured, aromatic wine with ripe black and red berry flavours and a classic earthy Pinot Noir bouquet. Its excellent balance of ripe tannins and elegant yet concentrated fruit results in a silky, approachable wine which ages very well. This wine is perfect with roasted or marinated red and white meats, and traditional cheeses.

  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 good affordable taste of red burgundy. In addition to the tart cherry of pinot noir, I also sensed a beefy/gamey flavor that reminded me of rare roast beef. Fine and silky on the palate.
