Louis Jadot Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 2009 750ml

Louis Jadot Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc

This most celebrated of white Burgundies is a synthesis of density and elegance, marked by intense ripe pear and stone fruit flavors, underscored by mineral, spice and grilled nut tones set in a finely honed structure ending in a subtle, honeyed texture.

The Le Montrachet vineyard lies nearly at the crest of its slope, occupying just under 10 acres on each side of the border dividing Puligny and Chassagne. Its name "Mont Rachat", from the Latin "Mons Rachisensis," means literally a "bald hilltop," and the soil is so poor and stony that it does not even support underbrush. The subsoil, however, is extremely chalky, perfectly drained, and with a south-south-eastern exposition that catches the sun's rays from dawn to dusk. These factors contribute to an exceptional level of organic complexity, concentration and maturity in the fruit.

Maison Louis Jadot practices a traditional vinification, primarily in new oak casks, to underscore and highlight the unique qualities inherent in the fruit of this great vineyard. Le Montrachet is rarely described in any but superlative terms. Its incomparable depth, intense fruit elegance, and layers of complex, textural richness, reflected in a sublime bouquet reminiscent of honey and toast, culminate in a finish of haunting persistence.
