Louis Jadot Chevalier Montrachet les Demoiselles 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 les Demoiselles is also a very young and very, very beautiful wine. The youthful and very promising bouquet wafts from the glass in a refined mélange of apple, lemon, pear, chalky and beautifully complex minerality, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a beautiful core of fruit, brisk acids, exquisite focus and grip and a very, very long, youthful and perfectly-balanced finish. This reminds me quite a bit of the 1985 les Demoiselles when it was young- which for a long time was my favorite example of Chevalier-Montrachet I had ever tasted. A great wine in the making...95+" 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.

The 2011 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles puts the Batard in its place with lime flower crushed stone freshly sliced apricot and lemon peel that are beautifully defined. The palate is very well-balanced with a crisp seam of acidity. It is very tight in the mouth not really wanting to play ball unlike the nose but there is certainly good length here. Very fine. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

An ultra-pure and high-toned nose of wet stone spiced pear and acacia blossom and green apple is also trimmed in just enough oak to notice. The markedly stony broad-shouldered and tautly muscular flavors possess almost painful intensity on the crystalline and explosively long finish. 2011 is a vintage where the Demoiselles is bigger than it typically is yet there is absolutely no loss of refinement or elegance. 2023+ Burghound.

Highly nuanced nose combines wet stone white flowers hazelnut juice clove noble herbs and a whiff of vanilla. Ripe silky and round; the deepest and most layered of these 2011s to this point but also boasts terrific lemon-and-stone energy for a wine with such a plump generous texture. Finishes extremely long and subtle with a repeating hint of sexy vanillin oak. A knockout. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
