Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques Premiere Cru 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Gevrey-Chambertin is located to the North of Côte de Nuits. It possesses 26 premiers crus and 8 grands crus. Half of the Premiers Crus surrounds the grands Crus (near Morey Saint-denis). The other half is located to the North in the "Combe" de Lavaux on a calcareous and clayish soil with quite a great deal of marls. There are only five owners of this prestigious Clos, which may have deserved the Grand Cru Appellation when the first official classification was decided. The Louis Jadot Clos Saint Jacques really comes from a very original place giving a particular complexity to the Pinot Noir grape. The Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques is a full-bodied and complex wine. It shows a broad palet of aromas, both powerful and elegant, with an impressive length in the mouth. It will perfectly match game, meat in sauce, mushrooms and strong cheese. This wine is really able to keep many years, 10 and more according to the vintages and the storage conditions. In great vintages, it will be able to age more than 40 years !

  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.
