Jadot’s parcel of the Grand Cru vineyard of Bonnes Mares lies within the commune of Chambolle-Musigny, on steep slopes rising above the village of Chambolle. In this vineyard, the calcium content of the soil is relatively low, making for a more robust wine than Le Musigny, although extremely elegant. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to one month and matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months before bottling.

Harvest Note
2014 was a year for excellent, balanced whites as the season began and ended strongly. The dry, warm weather was instrumental in advancing the development of the vines. Due to this, flowering began early and conditions in the area were dry until the end of June. On June 28th, hailstorms moved throughout the region, reducing yields in Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, and Beaune. In September, fine weather returned and the harvest was able to begin on the 12th. Despite the hailstorm, quantities were higher than they had been for the past few years.
Tasting Note
A powerful perfume of violets and red berries leads to fruity richness on a palate laced with subtle tannins. This wine will develop for 15 to 20 years in the bottle.
Food Pairing
Pair with delicate, sauced red meat dishes and most cheeses.
