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.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2009 Meursault is a gorgeous wine at this level. It shows marvelous harmony in a round, supple style well suited to near-term drinking. I find it amazing that Jadot produced a whopping 330 barrels of this wine, an enormity by Burgundian standards, at this level of quality and price. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. (Sep 2011)
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.
