RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

A backward, concentrated red, this is tight and closed. There's a sense of its deep black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors and dense ripe tannins, along with its refinement and length, but this needs time. Has a terrific finish.

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of black raspberry, dark cherry, mocha & flowers, lifted by an exotic suggestion of sandalwood incense. Wonderfully sweet & gripping... terrific acidity & inner-mouth energy... Has buns of steel: this is for the cellar!

91-94Burghound.com

It's immediately clear that this is a step up in both elegance and aromatic breadth with the impressive mélange of spiced earth and smoked game notes and red and black pinot fruit aromas that merge seamlessly into the classy, pure...

Rich, dense whiff of truffles. Depth of flavour and lovely lift with some real intrigue. Red fruits. Much the most charming of the Louis Jadot Grand Crus. Spiny

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, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Beze

Chambertin Clos-de-Beze is a Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, and its history goes back to the 7th century when it was owned by the monks of the Abbey of Beze. After the French Revolution the Catholic Church was forced to divide the vineyard among peasants. Today it is a 38-acre vineyard, making it slightly larger than Chambertin. Chambertin and Chambertin Clos-de-Beze are adjacent and share similar limestone, clay and gravel soils. Of the 18 proprietors, the largest by acreage are Pierre Damoy, 13.4 acres; Armand Rousseau, 3.5 acres; and Drouhin-Laroze, 3.48 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.
