Louis Jadot Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016

External Review:

The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru which comes from Les Pougets (the same as the red) has a bewitching floral mineral-laden bouquet with flinty scents that should become develop once bottled. The palate is nicely balanced with a tense yet slightly mellifluous entry. There is a fine bead of acidity here that cuts through the leesy citrus fruit. The finish is mild-mannered but nicely focused. Very fine. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

  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.

Popped and poured. Instant nose of buttered popcorn. Nose then added apples, a touch of mineral and some rosemary. The palate had good minerality, but was obscured by the buttery texture. Lots of great material here, but too oaky for my palate.

The 2012 Corton Charlie from Maison Jadot was not singing at the time of my visit but perhaps this was just a bad moment to be tasting it. The nose is again showing a fair bit of blocked malo character in its aromatic m

Wood toast and strong reduction presently render the nose unreadable but there is excellent freshness and verve to the intensely mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that possess impressive mid-palate concentration. There is good richness to the mouth c... Burghound. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Jadot, Louis Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 750ml

The Jadot 2006 Corton Charlemagne fermented at what used to be called a glacial pace. Any doubts about the advisability of showing it on the heels of the other grand crus in this collection were largely dispelled by a clarion aromatic fanfare of citrus and herbs; a tactile, quarry-like depth and density of crushed stone on the palate; and a finish of prodigious length, scrupulous pristinity, and electric vivacity. As this opens up, a sense of sheer sweet pit fruit emerges such as one seldom encounters from this appellation, and so do saline, savory sides to its minerality that will add to the fascination at table and over a decade or more of bottle maturation. Given its price and availability - there are all of 33 barrels worth - this is an indulgence in grand cru pedigree that a significant number of consumers should be able to enjoy, even perhaps especially in hard times.

Corton Charlemagne is powerful, rich, and minerally with an intense flavour of fruits and flowers and spicy aromas of pepper and cinnamon.
