Chambolle Musigny Louis Jadot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"I have always liked the style of Sentiers, which shows its Morey proximity in a slightly sturdier style of Chambolle, and the 2011 from Maison Jadot is a classic example of this underrated terroir. The deep and complex nose wafts from the glass in a blend of strawberries, cherries, complex soil tones that will turn autumnal with time, coffee, gamebirds, a touch of cedar and a topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely soildriven, with a fine core of pure fruit, superb focus and nascent complexity and the elegance of 2011 very much in evidence on the long and moderately tannic finish. Sentiers is probably one of the least elegant terroirs in Chambolle in general, but the refinement of the vintage has really dovetailed nicely here and produced a first class example of Chambolle premier cru...91" JG 01/13

  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.
