Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin shows the qualities characteristic of the commune: deep color, with a multi-faceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full, tannic structure and mellow texture carry into a lasting finish.
This powerful and perfumed wine require elaborate and strong-tasting food : leg of mutton, beef burgundy, game pâtés, strong cheeses.
"Jadot's 2008 Griotte-Chambertin offers the spiciest and most pungent aromatic and palate display of Gevrey terroir in their 2008 collection. Sage, cinnamon, smoky black tea and hints of caramel, game, and crushed stone accent a formidable concentration of fresh red fruits. There is less vintage-typical brightness here, though, than I anticipated, and the grip to the finish is more formidable than endearing. Give bottles 4-5 years in the cellar before revisiting one and assessing this wine's further potential. 90-91 Points"
