Louis Jadot Volnay Clos de la Barre Premiere Cru 1998

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has such a multi-faceted nose with precise notes of dusty rocks, fleshy fruits, pollen, leather anise and dried strawberry it is completely engaging. It's big and round in the mouth with plenty of acid and good body buffering the not inconsequential tannins. While the palate doesn't match the sheer beauty of the nose here it certainly stands to improve in the cellar but is a lovely mouthful of rambunctious fruit today. 2009-2017 91pts

  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.
