Description

Louis Jadot Griotte Chambertin is a Grand Cru red Burgundy from the Cotes de Nuits wine-growing region. The vineyard of Griotte Chambertin is located opposite Chambertin Clos de Bèze and next to the Chapelle Chambertin in the southern part of the village, near Morey Saint Denis.

Louis Jadot is one of the largest and most famous wine producers and negociants in the Burgundy wine-growing region. The origins of the company date back to 1859 when the business was fouded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Over time the company has acquired plots of vines is some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region including Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and many more. Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé (they own the fantastic Domaine Ferret). Today the business is headed by Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962.

Gevrey-Chambertin is the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus surrounds Grands Crus (near Morey); the other half is at the North close to La Combe de Lavaux with a soil made of chalk and clay.

Griotte Chambertin is the smallest of the smallest of the Gevrey Chambertin Grand Crus covering some 2.63 hectares. It takes its name from its shape,  concave bowl that traps the sun so much in summer that it is like a little grill or “grillotte”. The vines are planted on a base of compacted limestone.

This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged 18-20 months in oak barrels.
