Tasting Notes

    Burghound, October 2005,
    Score: 92

    As readers know, I am not a huge fan of the '97 vintage, finding the reds to often possess a slightly under ripe and greenish character to the structure despite having very ripe, indeed sometimes stewed, fruit. This however is a lovely effort in the context of the vintage with ripe but not over ripe and quite spicy fruit aromas that are still almost entirely primary that are followed by rich and very firmly structured, even robust flavors that possess plenty of density and enough acidity to keep everything in balance. This will not seduce or charm you but it is a mouthful of wine that is built along the lines of power and punch rather than elegance and grace. It will require ample time in the cellar to reveal its full potential and while this was by no means the finest wine of the tasting, it is indisputably an excellent effort for the vintage.Drink: 2012+.

I have raised my score slightly as the last two bottles have displayed even more complexity and it's possible that there is even more upside in the offing.

Producer

Maison Louis Jadot

Founded in 1859 by Louis Jadot, Maison Louis Jadot has always been situated in the centre of Beaune in the heart of the Burgundy vineyards. Managed by three generations of the Jadot family and then by the Gagey family assisted by Jacques Lardière in the cellar, Jadot is now directed by Pierre Henry Gagey, who has introduced a new wine making team, Frédéric Barnier and Guillaume Large. Since careful ageing in wooden barrels is so very important for the balance, aromas and the ageing potential of a great wine, in 1996, Louis Jadot entered into partnership with a firm of coopers, forming Cadus Cooperage, established in Ladoix Serrigny. This allows them to control their wood sourcing and the barrel production. Maison Louis Jadot now controls 105 hectares in Burgundy with more than 70 hectares in the Côte d'Or, exclusively in Premier and Grand Cru. They produce both negociant wines under the Maison Louis Jadot label and a number of Domaines: Gagey, Duc de Magenta, Louis Jadot and Héritiers de Louis Jadot.

Le Musigny

Le Musigny is a red Grand Cru vineyard based in Burgundy’s Chambolle Musigny village in the Côte de Nuits. Le Musigny is situated between the scrubland at the top of the slope and the upper section of Clos de Vougeot on well-draining limestone soil. The wines of Le Musigny are some of the best in Burgundy on a par with those of Romanée Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze.
