Louis Jadot Puligny Montrachet a Selection of Wines Or Other Items France Cote de Beaune Chardonnay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

From the most refined village of the Côte des Blancs, this elegant, medium bodied Chardonnay is characterized by peachy stone fruit and melon flavors and aromas set in a firm, balanced structure ending in a fresh, racy finish.

  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.

Showing a fair amount of oak on the nose this is easily lost among the top California Chardonnay’s I’m tasting alongside it but there is a savory edge to the lightly creamy and butterscotch notes here that lay under the dried apple fruit. In the mouth though this is bright, tense and beautifully proportioned with a real sense of elegance. Still youthful, this offers up bright, juicy apple and citrus fruits with fine acidity that peaks on the back palate, fading into the finish with a lovely nuance of lime. Moderately long and showing fine complexity, this is not a knockout but rather a wine that will keep you coming back for more until the bottle is empty. 90pts

Dry with great acidity. Hints of peach, apple and a toasty note. Would pair well with light fish. Cheers!
