Louis Jadot Charmes-Chambertin 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"I had not routinely paid enough attention to the Jadot Charmes-Chambertin, but the 2011 is a very, very fine follow-up to the excellent 2010 version here. As I observed last year, this is a purchased wine, but it is superb, offering up a complex nose of red and black cherries, a touch of strawberry, meaty tones, a fine base of soil, coffee, mustard seed and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a good core (though not quite the same concentration as the Clos St. Jacques), fine focus and a very long, classy and ripely tannic finish. This is very good juice indeed....92+" JG 01/13

  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.
