RATINGS

93Burghound.com

Restrained and impressively complex nose of earthy red currant and discreet spice elements. I very much like the textured mouth feel of the lightly mineral-inflected and notably taut full-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract

92Wine Spectator

A firm, dense, rigorous red, whose wild cherry and berry confit flavors are upheld by oaky tannins. This will need some time to resolve the oak, but the fruit and concentration persist.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Brooding, medicinal aromas of black cherry, licorice, menthol, fresh herbs and spices; ..Juicy, delineated and tight,... with plenty of intensity to its red berry and spice flavors. And brisk, minerally and precise on the rising finish

90The Wine Advocate

Lively red cherry, crushed strawberry and white pepper notes on the nose, quite intense and thankfully retaining satisfying delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, firm grip in the mouth and a tightly wound,

PRODUCER

Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy’s most respected negociants. Founded in 1859 by the Jadot family, the prestige and quality of the estate’s wines were well established in the 19th century. The family continued buying highly desirable vineyards in the 20th century. In 1985 the estate was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s American importer. Located in Beaune, the estate has 336 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Though all the maison’s wines are known for their high quality, signature wines are the Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Close de Beze, Chevalier-Montrachet les Demoiselles, Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Musigny. Pierre-Henry Gagey is president.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Vougeot, Clos de Vougeot

Clos de Vougeot is a walled vineyard that dominates the tiny commune of Vougeot in Burgundy’s Nuits-St.-Georges. The 124-acre Grand Cru vineyard includes a historic chateau that in 1945 was purchased by the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, an organization devoted to promoting the traditions of Burgundy and its wines. The impressive chateau is the organization’s headquarters. Clos de Vougeot was established as a vineyard by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, then sold off to private owners after the French Revolution. The vineyard is unusual for a Grand Cru in that it includes land that runs down to the main road. The soil is light limestone with sand. Principal landowners are Chateau de la Tour, with 13 acres; Meo-Camuzet, 7.5 acres; Rebourseau, 5.5 acres; Louis Jadot, 5.3 acres; and Leroy, 5 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
