RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

Super-spicy blackberries and black cherries make up the aromatic profile...dense, pure personality is medium to full-bodied, chewy-textured, crammed with dark cherries, and immensely concentrated.

93Wine Enthusiast

Dry, almost austere at this stage, this wine is only just beginning to show its dense tannins and power. Under that firm, solid exterior, the rich black perfumed fruits are just waiting to burst out when it has had a few years in bottle.

92Wine Spectator

...accents of black cherry, plum and cassis. It's firm, but there's a sweetness and intensity that balances the tannins.

90+ Stephen Tanzer

Rich and very concentrated...Finishes with sweet, broad tannins and excellent length.

88-90Burghound.com

...incredibly dense...

17Jancis Robinson

Lively, relatively tense for a 2003 red burgundy, almost as though it has been acidified...Pretty sulky. Some core of bitter cherry fruit.

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, 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.
