User Reviews for Louis Jadot Meursault les Charmes Premiere Cru

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. Meursault is the centre of the four communes (Meursault, Blagny, Chassagne and Puligny) comprising that part of the Côte de Beaune known as the "Côte des Blancs", named for the quality and predominance of its white wines. Meursault's vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune. The soils of Les Charmes, due to their lower position on the slope, are richer and heavier than the thin stony soils of Les Perrieres above it, and yields the most typical Meursault 1er Cru. Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied wine, traditionally vinified in oak to yield a well structured cuvée which balances firmness with ripe fruit flavours. This Meursault Charmes is a quintessential wine with full, ripe fruit flavours, a fat, velvety texture and a bouquet redolent of peaches and apricots. Charmes is above all a seductive, approachable wine; round lush and ample in the palate. The strength and suppleness of Meursault make these wines ideal partners for food which is both rich and spicy, hot or cold. Foie gras, fish in a cream sauce, Thai mussels, creamed chicken and bacon, blanquettes and strong cheeses are just some examples.
