More Vintages and Sizes of Louis Jadot - Chapelle-Chambertin:

Issue: Issue 26
(from the oldest vines of the entire Jadot portfolio of owned vineyards) Like the Griotte, the highly complex and distinguished nose is almost exclusively from the red berry side of the aromatic spectrum with round and rich but noticeably wood-influenced flavors where the oak is more of a textural aspect than a taste factor because it rounds off the finish. The material is sufficiently gifted to eventually deal with the wood but probably at the cost of precision and detail. Perhaps this will surprise to the upside as the old vine extract is certainly present in spades.

($157) Good deep red. Wonderfully complex, vibrant aromas of red fruits, game and minerals. Offers great energy and sap in the mid-palate, with powerful minerality giving precision to the flavors. Wonderfully classy, soil-driven wine with the depth and structure to evolve in bottle for decades. Extremely long and tactile on the aftertaste.

First sample slightly musty and definitely lacking concentration. Quite racy and lacy but not convincingly Grand Cru after the Bonnes Mares. Is this a sample thing?Second sample (scored) much richer and fuller and more charming. Very bumptious and mouthfilling and, perhaps not as fine as the Clos de beze but a real show stopper.

Jadot's 2005 Chapelle-Chambertin smells brightly of ripe cherry, red licorice and smoked meat. Bitter-sweet cherry and smoky pungency on the palate are augmented by savory, meaty, salty, and bitter cherry pit. This positively blazes a path in its finish, with almost glaring brightness, mouth-watering salinity and invigorating hints of bitterness. There is nothing cuddly about the texture of this obviously age worthy beauty, however, its fine tannins are thoroughly covered by fruit and in no way weigh-down its dynamic personality.
