Chapelle-Chambertin is one of the eight Grands Cru vineyards of the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. This vineyard lies on an east-facing slope. This Pinot Noir wine is fermented in vats for up to four weeks before maturing for 18 to 20 months in oak barrels. This is a wine of delicacy and finesse, with notes of berries, earth and oak in a silken texture. From the En Gémeaux parcel in Chapelle-Chambertin, these are the oldest vines of the entire Jadot portfolio of owned vineyards and the wine will improve in the bottle for 20-25 years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Chapelle-Chambertin is dark and brooding. Cool, mineral notes lead to slate, black cherries, tar and licorice. This is a decidedly muscular, intense Burgundy with tons of density and power enshrouded by statuesque tannins. The sheer power and intensity suggest the Chapelle will require considerable patience. This big, dramatic wine is built for the cellar, but it is without question a showstopper, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045.

BurghoundLike all of the Gevrey grands crus in the Jadot ranges, this is also exceptionally fresh and cool with obvious minerality to the red berry fruit, humus and forest floor aromas. There is superb intensity to the mineral-driven and beautifully well-delineated large-scaled flavors that possess an extremely firm, mouth coating and driving finish. There is a real sense of underlying tension with an overt austerity to the very serious and stunningly long finish. The En Gémeaux character of pungent minerality is about as front and center as I have ever seen it. 92-94
