Louis Jadot Beaune White Grèves 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Maconnais is a transitional region not only of Burgundy, but of France: it links the Cote d'Or and Chalonnais with the Beaujolais, and begins to turn the northern landscape gently meridional. The proliferation of tiny villages in the Maconnais under the Macon-Villages appellation is so abundant that the wines are rarely commercialized under a specific village name. The village of Lugny, located about twelve miles north of the city of Macon in the heart of the Villages appellation, is one of only three or four to have successfully established its name. The typical chalk and limestone soils yield excellent wines of well- established reputation. Maison Louis Jadot purchases wines from growers in Lugny based on the quality of the harvest each vintage. Macon-Lugny Jadot is a fresh, delicate Chardonnay of medium body with a fragrant, fruit bouquet offset by floral notes which are confirmed on the palate. The clean, well-balanced acidity carries into a crisp finish.

  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.

Classically structured, medium-bodied wine blended to show pure, ripe tropical fruit flavors offset by a touch of oak. Pair with soft cheeses or pastas and chicken in cream sauce.
