Food Pairings for Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin les Cazetiers Premiere Cru
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 the northernmost of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus of Gevrey lie scattered around the perimeter of the Grands Crus; the other half occupy a steep, southeast facing slope to the north, with calcareous clay soils. The "Cazetiers" vineyard is situated on that easterly exposed slope, nearly at the same altitude of the Chambertin Grand Cru vineyards, and bordering the Clos Saint Jacques. It is considered to be one of the best Premiers Crus. Louis Jadot produces a robust wine with exceptional depth, vigorous red fruit flavours and aromatic bouquet that is structured for longevity. This powerful wine will perfectly match with simmered dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon and strong cheeses or rich, dark chocolate.
