Louis Jadot Burgundy Cotes de Nuits Villages le Vaucrain Rouge 2009
This wine is available for EN PRIMEUR purchase ONLY. 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. Vosne Romanée vineyards are situated just to the north of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The two greatest vineyards of Vosne Romanée and Flagey-Echezeaux, are entitled to use the Vosne-Romanée appellation. This wine shows a nice and deep colour, it is well-balanced with aromas of ripe red and black berries as well as spices. It is very velvety. It is a nice companion to red meat and most cheeses.
