Founded in 1859, by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, he was the first of his family to arrive in Beaune from Belgium in 1794 and soon began purchasing Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy. With grape growing a part of his heritage, Louis Henry set about gaining experience first in the cellars, in the evaluation of wines, and then in the vineyards, in the study of viticulture. The house of Louis Jadot has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and currently owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots. In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses.
All in the finish here with bright dark fruit and lemon character. Spicy, yet floral and superb. Full body, firm tannins and a long, long finish. From 90-year-old vines. Wonderful. It goes on for minutes on the palate. Startling.
Packed with tannins and with enormous structure, this wine is opulent while very firm. At the same time, smoky acidity shoots through all this density. From a great terroir, this wine shows minerality and its great structure well. *Top 100 Cellar Selections 2016* (RV)
The 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin from Louis Jadot has really turned out splendidly and this may well be the finest wine that I tasted in the cellars this year. The beautiful bouquet is a vibrant mélange of red and black cherries, grilled meats, cocoa, a complex base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows of marvelous mid-palate depth, with a sense of sappiness to come that is very rare this year in the Jadot cellars. The finish is long and suavely tannic, with great soil signature, beautifully-integrated tannins and excellent focus and grip. A superb result in 2013! (Drink between 2023-2060)
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru was showing a pleasant reduction on the nose. There are plenty of clean and crisp redcurrant and cranberry fruit notes, hints of lavender and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, very fine tannin, good backbone with a wondrous, complex, spice-tinged finish that has impressive persistence, more than a minute perhaps. This is a superb Chapelle-Chamberlin from Jadot. Tasted September 2016. (NM)
