Louis Jadot Overview
+
With its origins dating back to 1203, this vineyard produces a bold Grand Cru with spicy cherry characters and firm but elegant tannins. Clos St Denis is a 5.99 ha Grand Cru site to the North of the village of Morey St Denis. The Grand Crus are on the same hard limestone found in Gevrey- Chambertin. Clos St Dennis which is more toward the base of the hillside has soils rich in brown limestone and benefits from a particularly sheltered microclimate. Morey-Saint-Denis forms one of the smallest village appellations of the Côte de Nuits. Five Grand Crus are to be found there including the Clos Saint Denis. Wedged between Gevrey Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny.

Weather:
2010 was a very fine vintage in Burgundy despite some challenging weather conditions. 2010 is a smaller production, down some 25% on normal levels. The weather began with a cold and wet winter and temperatures hitting -21C with some of the primary buds were burnt off. Around 650,000 cases of wine were lost overnight. Moving to the spring months and flowering season the weather was cool. In September, the savior month, the dry warm days helped produce a classic burgundy vintage. The bright weather continued until the normal harvest that began on 21st September.

Tasting Note: Slightly muted aromatics. A powerful style with age has improved, splendid middle palate concentration of sweet ripe, plump red fruit. The texture has a silky elegance to it that combines beautifully with the well judge oak and sturdy grip. Very old vines here. Will age well.

“(100% vendange entier; 100% new oak): Good full medium red. Vibrant aromas of red fruits, dried rose, minerals and sweet oak. Wonderfully sweet but with stony minerality giving the mid-palate a light touch. Offers an uncanny blend of strength and elegance; tangy and penetrating. Really classic young Clos Saint-Denis with outstanding precision and verve. The floral, rising finish features very fine-grained tannins and mouth-staining persistence.”
