Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru has a sense of length and breadth on the nose: delve in to find red and yellow plum, wild strawberry, heather, forest floor and sage aromas that are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, moderate weight in the mouth, but it is more a sense of focus and symmetry that really lifts this Chambertin. Fresh and vibrant with the mineral component becoming accentuated towards the linear finish, this is a Chambertin that will require several years in bottle.

Once again this was not vinified by Jadot. This too is remarkably broad-ranging with its relatively expressive nose of cool red and dark fruit, spice, earth, game, underbrush, floral and exotic tea scented aromas. There is an almost pungent minerality to the overtly powerful and intense big-bodied flavors that exude a controlled power on the imposingly long finish where an interesting hint of tobacco appears. This is impressive though again note well that this will require all of 15 years to arrive at its peak and 18 to 20 would not surprise me.

Full red with a slight haze. Musky, leesy aromas of dark cherry, graphite, licorice and herbs. Very rich but youthfully monolithic; boasts plenty of power but shows less precision and lift than the Chapelle. Today the wine's tannins shut down the finish. This fruit got a cold maceration and was vinified with a portion of its stems, noted Frédéric Barnier; Jadot takes possession of the barrels in December.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Louis Jadot: If you've ever wondered just how much difference terroir can make when it comes to how a wine tastes, Maison Louis Jadot can serve as an excellent point of comparison. If you taste their wine, then try a typical Californian Chardonnay, it's like two different worlds. From the most expensive pieces of art to affordable heavy-hitters, this winery delivers consistent quality, and their accessibility may be their strongest asset. If you've ever wanted to taste fine white wines but were afraid of their price point, Maison Louis Jadot is the best place to start. The flavors here are classic Macon-Village, with a strong presence of fresh, juicy apples and sharp citrus, along with subtle and sensual notes of delicate flowers. The textures of the wine are intricate and nuanced, and every sip feels like a new window into their workings.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
