Winemaker's Notes:

A mellow, perfumed blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grapes, this wine is marked by fresh, fragrant slightly floral fruit flavors and aromas set in a clean, supple texture ending in 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.

Really good French Chardonnay. Crisp, clean, hints of slate, lemon chiffon and lemon peel. Very nice acidity and a decent finish.

Big funk and game on the nose. Opens up like a Syrah. Graphite, black and blue fruit, some plum, violets. IT's burly and tannic on the palate, feeling crunchy. Loads of black fruit with strong blueberry and blackberry flavors. Strong acid. Big and complex. Unexpected and very nice! Not like the usual Gamay at all. 3/8/12

I was unfamiliar with this wine until friends came over for dinner and brought a bottle along. After the first sip, I wished I was serving steamed mussels. It would be a great fit! It's got a very smooth, well-balanced bouquet and a subtle, but distinct bite. One reviewer complained of its sharpness, but if you don't want any bite, you should drink a chablis. The wine paired beautifully with the gorgonzola cheese and cucumber/humus spread w/ tomato, black greek olives, and feta cheese and carried us through the antipasto salad w/ mozarella and salami with a splash. I found it delightful.That you can get such a quality French wine for modest price makes the 2009 Jadot Chardonnay Bourgognie a wine you won't be afraid or ashamed to share with friends time and time again.

Supple and red fruited with a strawberry freshness, this wine's deep color and purple ripeness give few clues to its complexities. It firms up with air, revealing a mouthwatering tannin as edgy as crushed rock. The fruit develops toward delicacy, lasting through a crisp and elegant finish. Cellar this for four or five years, and then serve it with flavorful, grass-fed beef.

Representing a blend from all five of their sites but favoring Champ de Cour and Carquelin, Chateau des Jacques's 2009 Moulin-a-Vent smells of black and red raspberry, with heliotrope and lily overtones. With a striking and surprising sense of seamless oily-richness to its sweetly, exuberantly berry-brimmed palate impression, this reveals satisfying low-toned salted meat stock character that persists all the way through a lingering, lip-smacking finish. I suspect this already exceptional value will gain detail and finesse and be worth following for 4-6 years.

The Louis Jadot Moulin Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age.

Bright purple. Spice-accented red and dark berries on the nose, with complicating notes of smoky minerals, dried flowers and black cardamom. Deep cherry-vanilla and black raspberry flavors provide very good palate coverage. Weightier on the finish, where the dark berry and floral notes linger with very good tenacity.

Graphite and vanilla aromas mix with the pure raspberry coulis, fig and ripe cherry fruit in this bright, lively red. There's a sublayer of smoke and iron notes, with a lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2014

Dunkle, rubinrote Farbe, kräftig und würzig in der Nase, kraftvoll und vollmundig, mit elegant eingebetteten Tanninen, langer Abgang. Verfeinert sich noch mit den Jahren.
