Louis Jadot Corton-Charlemagne 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromatically, the powerful, dense, explosive 2002 Corton-Charlemagne offers spices, minerals, gravel and pears. Its awesome aromatics are followed by a muscular, intense personality of exceptional purity. Spices, earth, poached pears, apples, white peaches, and ginger can be found throughout this blockbuster’s flavor profile, as well as in its super-impressive finish. Drink this elegant, muscle-bound gem between 2009 and 2019...94-97" WA 2/04

  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.

It's interesting but this is much more feminine and rounder in style than the Le Charlemagne with its distinctly masculine character. This is not as powerful but it's more elegant with precise, delineated and pure flavors that also enjoy ample amounts of dry extract and awe-inspiring length.
