Louis Jadot Clos St. Denis 1993

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This was quite a complete bottle with it's beguiling nose offering up intriguing citrus and menthol notes that slowly morphed into very primary gooseberry and huckleberry notes. Integrated and round in the mouth this is richly fruited with dark berry notes supported by solid acidity and lots of ripe tannins lurking. Long finish of sour cherry, raspberry and strawberry with stunning purity and sneaky length this really shines on the finish leading me to think that this can only improve and will by breathtaking with it's zesty berry fruit full revealed but even at this stage there is lovely bottle sweetness. Drink this anytime from 2008-2020

  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.
