Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is a red Burgundy produced in the Cotes de Nuits wine-growing region of Burgundy.
Louis Jadot is one of the principal owners of the Clos Vougeot vineyard owning a 2.6 hectare parcel of vines acquired in the 1980s and with long term contracts for control of another 0.69 hectares. The village of Vougeot is in the centre of the Côte de Nuits, flanked on the north by Chambolle Musigny and on the south by Flagey Echezeaux and Vosne Romanée. The 50 ha vineyard faces the east. The geological composition ranges from chalky stoney clay, on the higher parts of the slope, to moist, compact soil richer in humus and with fewer stones on the lower slopes. With just over 2 hectares the Clos Vougeot vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot are the second largest vineyard owner here.
The 100% Pinot Noir grapes undergo a traditional Burgundian vinification. The grapes are hand harvested and sorted by hand and are de-stemmed prior to fermentation (3-4 weeks) in open wooden vats or stainless steel. The wine is aged in barrel for 18 months before bottling.
Louis Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is the epitome of great Burgundy, supple and sumptuous with great depth and complexity and a wonderful fragrance.
