RATINGS

94Wine Enthusiast

...warm, rich and ripe wine is generous with its spice, smokiness and rounded red fruits...sense of structure really gives this wine its power and density.

91James Suckling

There is a real purity of fruit here with dried strawberry and mineral character. Some lemon and citrus too. Full to medium body, extremely clean and exciting. Racy.

90-92The Wine Advocate

...touches of orange sorbet and fresh raspberries developing nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly "stringy" tannins at the moment, the acidity nicely judged and showing fine focus on the elegant finish. Excellent.

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 Chouacheux

Les Chouacheux is a 12.5-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the southern part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is on a gentle slope that faces east. It is one of Beaune’s 44 vineyards that is either partly or entirely Premier Cru. Beaune has no Grand Cru.

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.
