A superb vintage of this unique Grand Cru from Gevrey-Chambertin. The Griottes vineyard is very close to the heart of greatness, sitting just below and bordering both the Chambertin Grand Cru and its adjunct Chambertin-Clos-de-Beze. But Griotte enjoys a different and rare aspect -- facing northeast it escapes the harshest sun exposure. Fruit richness and definition still benefits from the famous slope's thin and well-drained limestone soils, but this longer, cooler ripening channels Chambertin power and complexity into a more elegant and perfumed profile than others in this traditionally 'masculine' locale. On this small site the quality is very reliable and rewarding, with an ability to not only reward but exceed expectations in cellar, making Griotte one of Chambertin's most collected and sought-after vineyards. A vintage to collect!

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

92-95/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"More moderate wood influence more easily allows the pretty if reticent nose of various dark berries, humus, forest floor and earth nuances to be appreciated. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the medium weight plus flavors that possess a spicy inner mouth perfume that adds a touch of elegance to the light mineral-inflected and hugely long finish. If it can add top notch depth with time it should merit, or even exceed, the upper end of my projected range."
