Louis Jadot Chapelle Chambertin 2009
Wine Advocate reports: 'I tasted an impressive range of wines with Jacques Lardiere at Louis Jadot and his successor Frederic Barnier, who is slated to take over when Lardiere retires at the end of 2012. In 2009 Jadot began harvesting on September 6. All of the reds were made from 100% destemmed fruit. Maceration times varied from wine to wine, but according to Lardiere all of the wines were made with essentially the same approach. Lardiere is another of the producers who compares 2009 to 1959, and believes the wines will age well because of their density of fruit and minerality. Many of the estate's own vineyards are farmed biodynamically, but of course Jadot also sources wine from other growers that is not necessarily from biodynamically farmed vineyards.'

BurghoundA pretty and cool mix of upper and lower register aromas includes notes of red currant, wild red berries, earth and stone hints. The attractively energetic and focused medium weight plus flavors possess very fine mid-palate concentration with a silky yet firm mouth feel. There is excellent depth and length to the palate staining finish that is an exercise in harmony and balance though there is some youthful asperity present. Lovely and this should age exceptionally well. 92-95
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Chapelle-Chambertin possesses wonderful inner perfume and detail in its layered fruit. This shows lovely precision and depth to match the understated yet impeccably classy personality. The Chapelle is made from estate owned vineyards. This old-vine parcel is planted with bunches that give tiny berries. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. 90-93
