Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 2008 750ml

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin

91 Points Wine Advocate: Jadot's 2008 Griotte-Chambertin offers the spiciest and most pungent aromatic and palate display of Gevrey terroir in their 2008 collection. Sage, cinnamon, smoky black tea and hints of caramel, game, and crushed stone accent a formidable concentration of fresh red fruits. There is less vintage-typical brightness here, though, than I anticipated, and the grip to the finish is more formidable than endearing. Give bottles 4-5 years in the cellar before revisiting one and assessing this wine's further potential.

The village wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are produced from vineyards lying on the extension of the slope on which the grands and premiers crus are situated. These vineyards vary considerably in quality, and the name of the producer is thus more important here than elsewhere. Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of growers with whom it holds purchase agreements based on the harvest's quality each year. Jadot Gevrey- Chambertin shows the qualities characteristic of the commune: deep-color, with a multi-faceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full, tannic structure and mellow texture carry into a lasting finish.

Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by the man whose name it bears, M. Louis Henry Denis Jadot. A young man of Belgian ancestry whose family had settled in Beaune near the turn of the century, Louis Henry Denis Jadot developed an early interest in the wines of Burgundy. In 1794, the first family members to arrive in France purchased half of the extraordinary grand cru vineyard of Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles; later, 1826, Louis Henry's father acquired the Clos des Ursules vineyard, in the premier cru of Vignes-Franches in the commune of Beaune, which has remained a solely-owned holding of the Jadot family ever since.
