A linear style, this fuses spice and sandalwood notes with cherry and raspberry fruit. Shows fine concentration and intensity on the long finish.

92-94Vinous / IWC

...striking. Expressive floral notes add lift as in a beautifully delineated, translucent Burgundy... Pomegranate, cherry pit, mint, cinnamon and wild flowers are pushed forward...boasts gorgeous complexity and plenty of nuance...

A cool and airy nose features notes of pure essence of plum, black raspberry, earth and soft spice nuances that are trimmed in discreet oak. There is good richness to the reasonably refined and suave medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth and very good length on the dusty, serious and built-to-age finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chapelle-Chambertin

Chapelle-Chambertin is a 13.5-acre Grand Cru vineyard just north of Griotte-Chambertin in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. Its name comes from the chapel of Notre Dame de Beze, a chapel built in 1155 by the monks of Abbey de Beze and demolished several centuries later during the French Revolution. There is not much slope in this vineyard, nor much soil. Louis Jadot and Claude Dugat have small parcels here, though the largest landholders are Pierre Damoy, 5 acres; Ponsot 1.7 acres; and Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 1.5 acres.


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.
