Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares 1991

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely nose here with notes of underbrush and herbs contrasting the hightoned notes of dark fruit and spice reminding of anise. lean and taut in the mouth yet ripe if note opulent. in fact with time a touch of astringency mars the otherwise attractive spice rich midpalate with it's very pure cherry and cherry pit fruit. the finish is subtle, short and strict. This requires time to tame the structure but I am skeptical about the wines balance ever improving and dont feel enough depth of fruit to give me any long term confidence for cellaring. Enjoy these over the shorter term 2008-2011

  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.
