Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Noir Jadot is a pure varietal wine produced from Pinot Noir musts and wines selected from village-level vineyard sites throughout the Côte d'Or and Côte Chalonnaise. As with several of their smaller wines, Maison Louis Jadot practices a "réplis" to improve the quality of the wine by declassifying some wines of higher appellation to be incorporated into the blend. The final lots are carefully chosen, and, depending on the vintage, aged for a number of months in oak casks to evoke the clean, ripe red berry flavors and earthiness of the grape mellowed by a subtle touch of wood.

Reflective of the Jadot style, Pinot Noir Jadot is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a delicious, lingering finish.
