    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Louis Jadot originally owned this vineyard in 1845, but it was lost to the family though inheritance. Eventually in 1913 his grandson Louis-Jean-Baptiste bought it back from two sisters, hence the decision to name this cuvée, Les Demoiselles. A superb example of the vibrant charm of Chevalier Montrachet, bright and lively with mineral tension. As the wine’s initial reserve eases, flavours of blood orange sorbet and freshly baked baguette develop. This beautifully floral wine is grace personified.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2020 Chevalier-Montrachet Demoiselles Grand Cru is fresh and vibrant on the nose, yellow plum intermixed with white flowers, crushed stone and wild peach. This is certainly more complex than the Bâtard-Montrachet. The palate is well-balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh on the entry with hints of white peach and citrus fruit, though like the Bâtard-Montrachet, I would have liked more sustain on the aftertaste, though I find it does develop more "bite" with aeration. Closure: Diam. Drink 2025 - 2048

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.

Region

Chevalier-Montrachet

Chevalier-Montrachet is a tiny Grand Cru appellation for white wine situated on the stony slopes just above Le Montrachet towards the southern end of the Cote d'Or. The wines are exceptional, if slightly lighter in style than their neighbour down the hill.
