Louis Jadot, Gevrey Chambertin, 2015
Region: Gevrey Chambertin, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Noir
Notes: Vegan and vegetarian
A marvellous wine that shows the classic Gevrey concentration with a deep colour, a richly fruity aroma of mixed black and red berries, firm but graceful tannins and a smooth texture to the long finish. Perfect with roasted poultry, veal or lamb, mushroom tart or hard cheese.
Gevrey-Chambertin is the northern most of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus surround the Grands Crus and the other half are in the north, with clay and chalk soils.
Maison Louis Jadot’s story can’t be reduced to a simple list of dates. It is, above all, a summary of moments, meetings and an overall philosophy, all based on one simple vision: to maintain the grandeur of Burgundy’s great terroirs for all time.
