Louis Jadot Puligny-Montrachet les Folatières Premiere Cru 2005

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. Chassagne Montrachet, situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, is one of the 5 villages of the prestigious "Côte des Blancs". East and South-East oriented, the soil of the Premiers Crus from Chassagne is mainly made of clay and chalk. The Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru "La Romanée" has a nice pale gold colour. Its nose is rich with aromas of fruit flesh, hazelnuts and almonds. It is fullbodied, well-balanced, but never "heavy", it is impressively long lasting in the mouth with these aromas of fresh fruits. It will perfectly match poultry, fish, shells and cheese such as Comté. Further, this wine has brilliant ageing potential wine, it can be stored for 10-15 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity.

  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.
