      Winery Notes
      The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. For the past 150 years Louis Jadot has continued as one of the great names of Burgundy and has gained international reputation for its superb red and white Burgundy wines. Louis Jadot is not only one of the largest producers of estate Burgundies of the Cote d'Or, it is one of the most celebrated exporters of premium Burgundies, owning close to 140 acres of vineyards from 24 of the most prestigious sites in Burgundy.

      Tasting Notes
      This is a wine of delicacy and finesse, with notes of berries, earth and oak in a silken texture. This wine will improve in the bottle for 20 to 25 years.Pair with sophisticated dishes such as sauced meats, game and strong cheeses such as Reblochon.

      Vintage Notes
      After a real winter, with truly cold temperatures (particularly in January), but with less rainfall than average, budbreak took place earlier than usual at the end of March during a superb early spring that saw vigorous vegetal growth. During the last fortnight of April, some rain fell on the already well-developed plants (many of which were already showing 3-4 leaves, sometimes more). In the Côte d’Or the frosts were less deadly than those of 2016, and were often radiative in nature (and therefore very localised). Nevertheless, they had a profound impact on Chablis, the Couchois region (to the west of the Côte Chalonnaise) and some of the hills in the north of the Maconnais, as well as southern Beaujolais and some of the slopes of the Beaujolais Villages area. Subsequently, there were a few weeks of slow growth as both the dry soils and the cool conditions meant that the vines took their time to put on a growth spurt. Some rainfall and temperatures somewhat above the norm in May gave us a reminder that the vine is, well, a vine… Growers picked up the pace in the vineyard and began lifting the canopies. At the start of June, vines in earlier-ripening areas flowered, but suffered a bit from heat stress. There was some evidence of poor fruit set, particularly when it came to the whites. The Pinot vines flowered later, in more moderate conditions, and promised well in terms of future fruiting. Overall, yields just about reached the average when it came to whites while the red harvest promised to be generous. It looked as if 2017 was set to be an early vintage, with picking due to start between the end of August and the beginning of September. We saw little in the way of disease pressure, although there were a few spots of downy mildew fairly late in the growing season, but these were quickly brought under control. There was some evidence of powdery mildew in July, but it caused little damage. Overall, summer was fine. There was little rot and the grapes ripened steadily, although the lack of rainfall (a shortfall equivalent to two whole months of rain compared to the average) began to make itself felt. In the south of the region, two hailstorms in July destroyed a large part of the potential harvest in the crus of Moulin à Vent, Chiroubles, Fleurie and Morgon, but the Côte d’Or was spared from damage. We began harvesting the whites on 2 September, a few days after we started picking the first grapes in Beaujolais. Picking took place in good conditions, with little need for triage and good levels of ripeness overall.

      Vineyard Notes
      Gevrey Chambertin is the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus of Gevrey lie on the Grands Crus east facing slope ; the other half occupies a steep, southeast facing slope to the north, with calcareous clay soils. Charmes Chambertin » vineyard is situated on the east facing slope between Mazoyères Chambertin Grand Cru, Latricières Chambertin and Chambertin Grand Cru. Charmes is derived from Chaume, meaning subtle or thatch indicating the former presence of a field of grain.

      Winemaking Notes
      The grapes bear small little dark red berries. The bunches are destemmed; they macerate in open vats during 4 weeks helping this subtle terroir to reveal itself. After devatting, the wines are aged in oak barrels during 18 months.
