Louis Jadot Chassagne-Montrachet la Romanée 2009
Reveals spicy but subdued plum, violet and black pinot fruit aromas. Pure, intense and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors possess good mid-palate concentration and a truly lovely mouth feel as the class of Vosne is immediately evident. The finish is focused and still relatively tight with a *lovely sense of verve*. Overall, this is more a hypothetical blend of 2008 and 2009 as there is more obvious acid support and while it's not as rich or opulent as many '09s, *I quite like this for its purity of expression and overall harmony*. burghound.com
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.
