Louis Jadot 'Grand Clos de Loyse' 2009
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. This Bourgogne comes exclusively from the Château des Jacques located in the southern part of Burgundy. The Château des Jacques was bought in 1996 by Maison Louis Jadot. This white Bourgogne shows perfectly an unusual expression of the chardonnay grape on a granitic soil from the very southern part of Burgundy. The Château des Jacques Bourgogne Chardonnay is a fruity wine with vanilla notes. It is a well structured wine, round on the palate and very well balanced. It goes well with white meat, poultry, fish, seafood and goat cheese.
