Louis Jadot Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Louis Jadot Chardonnay is vinified and blended from 100% Chardonnay grapes selected from quality wine growers in the Côte Chalonnaise, the Côte Mâconnais and the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. The wine is classified "Bourgogne Blanc" in appellation, but a proportion of superior village-level wines is added in most vintages to optimize the quality of the final blend. Made in a more full-bodied and structured style than most of Jadot's Mâconnais wines, the wine is partially fermented and aged in oak casks to add a rich, round character.

TASTING NOTE

This complex wine displays aromas of citrus and white flowers and vibrant flavors of fresh peach, pear and grapefruit.

ABOUT THE GRAPE

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
