RATINGS

92+ John Gilman

...outstanding, offering up a lovely bouquet of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, a really superb signature of soil, gamebird, coffee and just a touch of cedar...\full-bodied, suave and very elegant in profile, with a sappy core of fruit, fine transparency and a long, fine-grained and vibrant finish. This is really, really good Grèves!

89-91The Wine Advocate

...perfumed and seductive bouquet with ample red cherry, crushed strawberry and raspberry scents, a touch of vanilla pod tucked in just behind...palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, judicious acidity, lively with a linear, subtle sea-influenced finish. Very fine.

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 Beaune, Beaune, Les Greves

Les Greves is a 75-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the central part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy's Cote de Beaune. Though Beaune has no Grand Cru vineyards, it has 44 vineyards that are either partly or completely Premier Cru. Clive Coates has written that in the central section of the Beaune appellation is “where you will find the finest examples of premier cru in Beaune.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) 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.
