2009 Louis Jadot 1er Cru Chambolle Musigny "Les Baudes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1334188 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Like the Fuées, this is highly perfumed and very Chambolle with its restrained, complex and ultra-pure nose of red pinot fruit but here there is a more evident taut muscularity to the delineated, intense and equally pure medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent energy as well as a mineral-streak that runs to the serious, dusty and driving finish. I quite like this and the balance and concentration should permit it to age well for at least a decade and last several more. Impressive. *Outstanding*  (5/2011)

 The 2009 Chambolle “Baudes” is just a tad riper in style than the stunning Nuits “Boudots”, but does not cross the line into overripeness and maintains lovely freshness in its slightly more broad-shouldered style. The fine, black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs, violets, soil tones, vanillin oak and a nice touch of violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and tangy, with ripe tannins, fine focus and very good length and grip. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2040)  (11/2011)

89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes is a relatively firm style of Chambolle. The wine sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit in a refined expression of this site. The Baudes is elegant and beautifully delineated through to the finish. This turns quite a bit more delicate in the glass, as crushed flowers, berries and mint add the final layers of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029. (AG)  (5/2011)

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium red. Complex nose melds strawberry, minerals and menthol. Silky, perfumed and juicy in the mouth, with an impression of peppery acidity giving a distinctly cool quality to the delicate red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and sneaky length. Here the vineyard stands up to the vintage character. (ST)  (1/2011)

Additional Information:


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.


- 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.


- 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.
Specific Appellation:

Chambolle Musigny

- A charming village in the Côte de Nuits, north of Clos Vougeot. Mostly red (and very little white) wine from limestone-dominated soil makes the communes' wine silky, with finesse rather than density. The wines are known for their aromatic purity and elegance. The Grands Crus are Musigny and Bonnes Mares.
