Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Petite Chapelle 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"I love the elegance of good Petite Chapelle, and this is a characteristic that the 2011 from Maison Louis Jadot certainly exudes on both the nose and palate. The classic bouquet delivers a lovely mélange of cherries, red plums, cocoa powder, fresh herb tones, a fine base of soil and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved in personality, with a sappy core of fruit, ripe, well-integrated tannins and excellent length and grip on the refined and youthful finish. This will be the epitome of elegance at its apogee!...92+" JG 01/13

  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.
