Description & Technical Information
-
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.

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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Clos St Denis

Antonio Galloni
“The 2010 Clos Saint Denis comes across as seamless and impeccable from start to finish. It is an effortless, graceful wine that defines the essence of what makes Grand Cru Burgundy Grand Cru. It literally hovers on the palate with impeccable class and personality. The Clos Saint Denis was made with 100% whole clusters, which comes through in the wine's personality, especially on the finish. ”

Stephen Tanzer
“(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.”
96/100
Stephen Tanzer
“Bright medium-deep red. Multidimensional, slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of sappy cherry, allspice, rose petal and blood orange. Silky and creamy in an old-vine way yet almost magically penetrating too thanks to powerful minerality. This savory, dense wine saturates the mouth with perfume and the extremely long finish stains the palate with spice oils and crushed stone. Almost shockingly approachable for young Clos Saint-Denis, but this wine has the concentration, balance and structure for a long life in bottle.”
