Puligny Montrachet Referts Louis Jadot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"An impressively ripe wine that still keeps its structure and sense of place. There's a chalky-steely character to go with the richness. Green plums are merged with apricots to show great fine fruit...94" WE 4/12 "The 2009 Referts is excellent. The nose offers up a complex and vibrant blend of apples, peaches, orange peel, a touch of leesiness, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved, with a fine core of pure fruit, a lovely base of soil and superb backend energy and grip on the crisp and complex finish. This is a really fine bottle of Puligny premier cru in the making, but I would suggest that a handful of years in the cellar would be quite beneficial for this fine wine...92" JG 11/10

  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.
