About the Wine

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin wines are produced from vineyards lying on the extension of the slope on which the Grands and Premiers Crus are situated. The fruit is sourced from growers with whom Louis Jadot holds purchase agreements based on the quality of the harvest each year. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, then undergo fermentation. After a long maceration, a proportion of the wine is set to age in French oak barrels. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Gevrey Chambertin is the northern most of the great communes within the Côte de Nuits, with eight Grands Crus and twenty-six Premiers Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus in Gevrey-Chambertin are located in the valley called Combe de Lavaux, on calcareous and clay soil with marl. 

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin reflects the quality characteristics of the commune—deep color with a multifaceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full tannic structure and a mellow texture that carries into a lasting finish.

This powerful and perfumed wine requires elaborate, flavorful foods such as leg of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and strong cheeses.

Reviews

Showing the energy and powerful “grace” of the commune, this 100% Pinot Noir is steely and edgy with teeth-gripping chalkiness. High-toned blueberry and rhubarb take on sturdy tannins, but the wine’s juicy nature and top-of-palate acidity keeps everything in check. ~95 Tasting Panel

A rich, cherry-infused red, with a supple texture and bright acidity. Refined tannins add a light grip on the lingering finish. Offers fine balance and length. Drink now through 2028. 1,500 cases made, 345 cases imported. ~92WS
