Food Pairings for Louis Jadot Clos St. Denis
Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. Morey Saint Denis is one of the smallest village appellation of the Côte de Nuits. Four Grands Crus are located in this village and among them the Clos Saint Denis. Almost squeezed between Gevrey Chambertin and Chambolle Musigny, the wines of Morey have their own character, they are strong like the Gevrey wines and very elegant like the Chambolle wines. The origin of the Clos Saint Denis is very old. The vineyard used to belong to the Vergy church of Saint Denis founded in 1203 in the château of Vergy. The vineyard faces East, and is located on a soil made of calcareous clay with iron and marls. The Clos Saint Denis of Louis Jadot is a powerful wine, with a dark colour showing strong aromas of cherries, black current but also spices typical of our terroir. The tannins are both powerful and elegant. The Clos Saint Denis matches duck and game very well as well as french cheese like Cîteaux or Reblochon. The Clos Saint Denis can be easily kept 10 to 20 years if stored in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
