Winemaker's Notes

"The star among the '06 Chassagne premiers crus is the La Romanée. It shows citrus and mineral elements, but most of all breed and refinement."
-Wine Spectator 90-93

"Medium yellow. Musky peach and hazelnut on the soil-inflected nose. On the palate, this is tightly shut today, hinting at lemon, lime, white flowers and crushed stone. The firm finish offers a note of mirabelle This needs to be forgotten for at least five years."
-International Wine Cellar 91+

The 8.3-acre vineyard of La Romanée lies near the southern end of Chassagne-Montrachet on a southeasterly- exposed hillside almost reaching the summit of the commune's slope. It shares, not surprisingly, the place- name of "La Grande Montagne" with three other vineyards scattered at the top of this slope: En Virondot, with 5.6 acres; Les Grandes Ruchottes, with 5.3 acres; and the tiny La Grande Montagne proper, with 1.2 acres. Maison Louis Jadot maintains purchase arrangements with growers in this climat based on the quality of the harvest in each vintage. Typical of the wines from the upper reaches of the hillside, Chassagne-Montrachet La Romanée is a comparatively feminine, elegant Chassagne, charming and refined rather than robust, with a lovely, fragrant Chardonnay bouquet and notes of minerals and earth on the palate.
