2015 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1300109 92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is completely different and much more typically Gevrey with its earthier and more sauvage-inflected aromas of ripe dark berries and forest floor that are also trimmed in noticeable but not intrusive wood toast. There is more volume and power to the equally mineral-driven and concentrated flavors that possess real drive on the strikingly complex finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This notably structured effort should be first-rate if you have the patience to allow it to mature. (92-94)/2030+  (4/2017)

92-94 points Vinous

 Bright, full red. Ripe but cool scents of dark raspberry, spices, minerals and bitter chocolate. Densely packed and very intense, conveying a subtle sweetness to its dark berry, mineral and spice flavors. Finishes very long and gripping, with suave tannins arriving late. With its energy and minerality, this beauty really resounds on the back end and perks up the taste buds. Jadot's vines are in the middle of the slope, which Barnier described as "not the most calcaire section of Cazetiers."  (1/2017)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers has a detailed and expressive bouquet with a convincing sous-bois infused bouquet that gains intensity in the glass, plenty of detailed red berry fruit blossoming with aeration. The palate is detailed and precise with crisp acidity, maybe compact at the moment, yet the delineation on the finish is very commendable. I hope by bottling there is just a little more persistence on the aftertaste. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot".  (12/2016)

91 points Decanter

 Delicate and restrained red fruit nose with a light smokiness. The lean attack leads into a stylish and intense palate with fine-grained tannins and ample acidity. Focussed rather than opulent and deep, this needs time to flesh out. The structure seems excellent though, and the finish is long. Drinking Window 2018 - 2028  (2/2017)

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.
Specific Appellation:

Gevrey Chambertin

- For many wine aficionados, Gevrey Chambertin is the northernmost end of the true Côte d'Or. The largest of all of the communes, it has 9 Grands Crus (Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Chapelle Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin, Griotte Chambertin, Latricieres Chambertin, Mazy Chambertin, Mazoyeres Chambertin and Ruchottes Chambertin). The best Premier Cru wines come form the vineyards nestled along a hill to the west of the village. The Grands Crus are planted in compacted limestone, while the soils in the rest of the village vary as to their clay content. If we are to characterize broadly, the wines are powerful, muscular and need time in the bottle to develop.
