Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 2015
Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most trusted and revered wine houses in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. Frédéric Barnier, Jadot’s esteemed winemaker, and his team balance tradition and technology, focusing on the purest expression of each wine’s terroir. These principles of vinification take the lightest possible hand in winemaking, and produce the essence of fine Burgundy. Founded in 1859, the house now owns 528 acres of vineyards, including 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
This is a ripe Pinot Noir with excellent structure as well as generous fruitiness. It has acidity, tannins and a smoky aftertaste, while emphasizing the rounded red fruits that will make it delicious in a few years. It comes from vines on the flat lands stretching out into the Saône Valley.
Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin reflects the quality characteristics of the commune. Deep color with a multifaceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full tannic structure and a mellow texture that carries into a lasting finish.
This powerful and perfumed wine requires elaborate, flavorful foods such as leg of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and strong cheeses.
