Louis Jadot Chambolle Musigny "Les Fuees" Premier Cru 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

ʺThe 2012 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuees has a slight reduction on the nose, but with aeration it opens up and offers tertiary, briary aromas; then later broody black fruit and wild hedgerow. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy, succulent opening: plenty of redcurrant and tart red cherry fruit. It demonstrates admirable tension and length on the finish to crown this fine Les Fuees that should age with style.ʺ -Wine Advocate (90-92 Points)

  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.
