Before we get started on the joys of Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014, let’s get on the same page with recent going-ons. I practically tool the past four weeks off from drinking wine to get leaned up for a photo shoot. As you could imagine, it was hard to do. It seemed as though just when I was taking a hiatus off of wine, people were hosting wine nights that I swear looked as though I had curated the evenings. So, now with the photo shoot done I can go back to respectfully living my life the way every good oenophile should, and I choose Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014 as my welcome back wine. Why do you ask? Because Pinot Noir from Burgundy is a guaranteed good time for my mouth as its complexities will shock you back into your wine senses if it’s been awhile.
Maison Jadot was founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859. The operation remained family run until it was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s US importer, in 1985. Today, the Maison holds 210 hectares all across Burgundy, and produces a plethora of wines, with the intent to showcase Burgundy as far as they are able to take it. Adorned with the head of Bacchus, a Jadot wine is highly noticeable and distinct, and they range in price and quality allowing for a wider market share.
Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014
On colour, the Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014 holds a scarlet hue that I proclaimed as “sexy” when it landed in my tasting glass. On the nose, cherry, clove, and plum are noted and in that order for me. On the palate, blackberry, anise, rounded tannins, mineral with a long finish in the mouth is present. This wine’s complexity is further heightened as the Pinot Noir grapes used come from four different Burgundian sub-regions. This mixing up of the terroir allows Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014 to change with every sip. Truly delightful and a joy to sit back and watch its performance on the palate.
