This wine has incredible depth and generosity, rich fruit and powerful structure that will develop breath-taking complexity with age.
Louis Jadot purchased this great vineyard in 1914; it faces south and consistently produces wines with incredible depth and generosity.
After the challenges thrown at them in 2012, Bourgogne winemakers were hoping for a peaceful 2013 but capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, for the most part, the pickers had to wait until the start of October to take up their secateurs. The consequences of the weather's whims - such as shatter and millerandage, hail damage, concentration and disease - all had an impact on the quantities harvested. Across the region, no winegrowing area was spared however experience has made all the difference and 2013 is nevertheless considered a very successful vintage.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling.
