Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies

Gevrey-Chambertin 2016 play

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Nuits Villages
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

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.

harvest note

2016 began with frost, resulting in smaller crops, but the smaller crop allowed for ripening well into September due to cool, dry, and sunny weather. While yields were low, excellent white wines were produced. The 2016 vintage is unfolding to be an amazing one.
