Louis Jadot Volnay Clos des Chênes 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. Volnay lies roughly in the centre of the Côte de Beaune, bordered by Pommard to the Northeast, Monthélie to the West and Meursault to the South. The south-easterly exposed vineyards produce only red wines and 26 Premiers Crus. The soil is extremely thin, chalky, high in calcium and yield the lightest most delicate wines. The strip below, where most of the Premiers Crus are located, is much lower in chalk with a thin iron rich layer covering a strong subsoil. Nice aromas of red berries and violets, and some pepper. A young Volnay Clos des Chênes will be perfect with poultry or roasted meat. In a great vintage it will also match game very well.

  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.

Beautiful dark stone fruits and licorice- a brooding and delightful red.

I was concerned about my bottle after seeing several reviewers report they got a corked bottle. Luckily mine was fine. Beautiful fruit with a wonderful aroma. We all spent a lot of time with our noses in the glass. I found this for about $17 and at that price it is a terrific value.

My bottle, like Philip's, was also corked, but a friend had some from an earlier bottle and approved.

One of the best values you'll ever find in red Burgundy. 100% Pinot Noir from the stellar 2005 vintage. Louis Jadot Côte de Beaune-Villages is blended from wines selected from small growers in these areas with whom Jadot maintains long-standing relationships. Beyond this, the quality of the wine is improved by practicing a "réplis," whereby Jadot adds village-level wines from the vineyards of Santenay, Auxey-Duresses, Savigny and other communes in the Côte de Beaune, in effect declassifying superior wines to the benefit of the smaller wine. Jadot Côte de Beaune-Villages is supple and medium-bodied, with ripe, red fruit depth and a typically elegant, earthy and aromatic bouquet. The soft tannins are balanced by sweet berry flavors that make it easily approachable when young but capable of aging very gracefully over the medium term.
