Echezeaux Louis Jadot 92jg 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The parcel of Echézeaux that Maison Jadot utilizes lies in the lieu à dit of Rouge du Bas (up above Grands Echézeaux) and is planted with sixty year-old vines. The 2010 last November was showing a bit oaky to my palate, but the 2011 was singing this year, offering up a beautiful nose of black cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, venison, dark soil tones, fresh thyme and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a good core of fruit, ripe tannins and lovely length and grip on the beautifully balanced finish. This is a purchased wine and, perhaps, it lacks just a touch of dimension at the core that the domaine’s own grand crus possess in this vintage, but this is a lovely wine by any stretch of the imagination....92" 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.
