Colour: Light ruby color.
Nose: Dark ripe cherries and berries with iron fillings and a delicate smokiness. Intense notes of plum, soil and refined barnyard nuances on the nose.
Palate: Like a very dark and brooding animal with amazing concentration and power. This wine is well structured with a smooth texture on the palate. Its tannins are still taut so this would also benefit from a deep sleep for another 20 years or more.
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Aging: 18 months in oak barrels produced by Jadot’s cooperage Cadus.
History of Louis Jadot
It all began with a parcel of vines. And we all know just how important these individual bits of land are in Burgundy. It was with the purchase of the Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules that the story of Maison Louis Jadot began in 1826.
Three decades. That’s the time it took Louis Henri Denis Jadot to found our house, in 1859, and to lay the foundations of a family-owned domaine. He would contribute to the renown of the wines of Burgundy by developing a negotiant business focused on selling the wines in Northern European markets.
The label of Maison Louis Jadot’s wines are characterised by the instantly recognisable image of Bacchus’s head, an image that has become, in many ways, the signature of the house and a symbol of its identity, whatever is in the bottle.
