Louis Jadot Chambertin Clos de Beze 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Clos de Beze is a fantastic young wine that perfectly captures all of the potential latent in this fine vintage. The bouquet soars from the glass in an utterly sophisticated meÌülange of black cherries, cassis, smoked meat, espresso, a touch of dark chocolate and a profoundly complex base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full- bodied, long and very transparent, with a sappy core of black fruit, fine-grained tannins, laser-like focus and a very long, tangy and properly reserved finish. A stunning wine in the making that will take a full decade to blossom, and should prove to be very long lived for an '08. 2018-2060." "A slightly more expressive and notably spicier nose of primarily red berry fruit aromas that display ample floral and earth nuances that can also be found on the rich and full-bodied flavors that possess slightly more complexity and culminate in a serious, powerful and long finish that is a bit more persistent. I very much like the vibrancy and beautiful sense of completeness. A serious Beze built to age." -91-93 Points - Allen Meadows - Burghound

  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.
