2015 Domaine Louis Jadot Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1300092 93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This too is overtly floral with a breathtaking array of lilac, lavender, rose petal and violet scents adding both breadth and elegance to the array of red currant, plum, spice and forest floor scents. The suave, round and highly seductive broad-shouldered flavors possess superb mid-palate concentration before terminating in a hugely long, sappy and almost painfully intense finish where hints of mocha and warmth can be discerned. This is a serious and youthfully brooding Cham that is also going to require a very long stay in a cold cellar; in short, this is a ‘buy and forget’ wine. (93-96)/2035+  (4/2017)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a composed and harmonious, assured bouquet with mineral-driven red berry fruit, a touch of undergrowth and chalk emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite firm tannin. This is a conservative, correct Chambertin with superb structure, real density and assertiveness towards the finish. Will it develop the personality of the Mazis-Chambertin? Still, this represents an impressive Chambertin from Jadot that will give 20-30 years of pleasure.  (12/2016)

91-94 points Vinous

 (not Jadot's vinification): Medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of black cherry, licorice and herbs. Juicy, penetrating and tightly wound, displaying lovely clarity but not quite the give or lift of the amazing Chapelle. Today the wine's intense dark cherry and berry flavors are a bit cut off by its tannins, giving the finish a distinctly firm edge. This extremely backward wine will need a good decade of bottle aging.  (1/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
