Volnay Clos de la Barre Louis Jadot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Clos de la Barre is another absolutely perfectly balanced and refined example of the vintage. The bouquet is a classy mélange of cassis, black cherries, complex minerality, vinesmoke, fresh herbs and a deft touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and complex, with ripe tannins, excellent balance, sound acids and lovely length and grip on the bouncy and youthful finish. A lovely, lovely bottle of Volnay...92" JG 11/10 " ...reveals dazzling perfume and generous dark fruit, with hints of mentholated, balsamic notes that add complexity. This is a decidedly virile, powerful Volnay endowed with tons of depth. It will be a fascinating wine to follow over the coming years...90-93" WA 5/11 "The walled Clos de la Barre is a Jadot monopoly. This 2009 has great depth of flavor, hinting at the Volnay richness while remaining structured. That makes it a concentrated wine, red and black fruits mingling with wood and intense acidity. For long-term aging over six years and more...95" WE 05/12

  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.
