Winemaker's Notes

This powerful, dark wine has the aromas and flavors of cherries, black currant and spice that are typical of the terroir, along with elegant tannins. It will develop for 10 to 20 years in the bottle.

Serve with duck, game or cheeses such as Citeaux or Reblochon.

Critical Acclaim

"The Jadot 2006 Clos St.-Denis is scented with peony, cherry, cassis, and cedar; comes to the palate palpably dense yet polished in texture and positively energetic; and finishes long on black fruits, licorice, vanilla, chalky mineral notes, and persistent, wafting floral perfume. I might have guessed this blind to have been a Clos de Beze, and it offers a terrific example of enormous concentration and grip coexisting – as so often in the best wines of this vintage – with energy and lift. Like the corresponding Clos de Beze, this bottling has no reason to fear comparison with its 2005 counterpart, although perhaps in its second decade of bottle life, the tables will turn. "
