2006 Maison Louis Jadot Clos St-Jacques 1er Cru
Approx retail $110-135. 5 owners (Rousseau, Sylvia Esmonin, Bruno Clair, Domaine Fourrier and Jadot). Clearly above all other 1er cru vineyards in Gevrey- Chambertin and many feel deserving of grands cru status. · Rough and rustic at this stage and not very giving aromatically. Medium depth of sweet, dark red fruits with noticeable oak. Needs another ten years at least. Reviewed August 23, 2012 ARTICLE »
2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Marsannay
13.0% alc., $20. Imported by Kobrand Corp, NY, NY. · Subdued but pleasant perfume of black cherries and sandalwood. Tart and crisp black cherry flavors with a notable citrus tug, plenty of acidity and supporting oak in the background. Score: 85. Reviewed October 3, 2009 ARTICLE »
2004 Domaine Louis Jadot Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses
13.5% alc., $135 (purchase price and current price). Imported by Kobrand Corp, NY, NY. · Moderate garnet color with slight rim bricking. Funky, even over time, with aromas of old cork, dank cellar, old leather, toast and a hint of Bing cherry. Slightly sulfured at first but disappearing over time, revealing the delicate flavor of chocolate imbued cherry with savory and char notes. Silky in texture, with restrained tannins and some length on the finish. Good acid drive, even leading to a slightly tart finish. The wine just doesn’t deliver enough charm. Drink up. Score: Good.

2001 Maison Louis Jadot Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
Dark fruited with plenty of juicy plum and blackberry fruit, wrapped in muscular tannins. A savory wine that is still years away before the fruit will fully emerge from its tannic cloak. Reviewed August 23, 2012 ARTICLE »
