A graceful, elegant Chardonnay of medium full body, this wine shows the classic citrus and ripe stone fruit flavors overlaid by distinct notes of almonds characteristic of the appellation, ending in a long, ripe finish.
Vinous 89 points - (this is Jadot’s largest village cuvee, from multiple parcels, but production was down to 180 barrels in 2012, vs. a normal 250 to 300): Pale, light yellow with a hint of gold. Classic Meursault aromas of peach, orange, hazelnut and oatmeal. Broad, supple and sweet, with fruit-driven flavors of pear, apple and peach. Finishes with a faint lemony edge. Very good material here but less suave than the Beaune Greves.
This deeply colored wine has a blackberry, prune and black currant aroma that acquires a muskiness with age. Tannic and supple, it will develop for 8 to 12 years in the bottle.
Marsannay is the northernmost commune of the Côte d'Or, lying virtually on the outskirts of the city of Dijon, three miles north of Gevrey Chambertin.
In 1987, Marsannay was granted its own A.O.C. appellation and became the first village for which the appellation applies to red, white and rosé wines.
Maison Louis Jadot produce a deep coloured Marsannay. The subtle bouquet is reminiscent of blackberries, prunes and blackcurrants, while ageing lends them a musky odour. The wines are usually tannic and very supple.
