Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

The House of Louis Jadot has been producing Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Bright red color with aromas of fresh red fruits and hints of floral spice. On the palate cherry flavors with notes of pepper spice, good acidity and balance. Medium finish ending with a fruit and floral character. Nice value, easy drinking. Tasting Sample.

Heather honeyed, apricots, ripe peach, overripe pineapple, white and yellow florals, thick and waxy, soft sweet minerality and a very long rich finish.

A youthful Chardonnay with a lovely aroma and balanced oak. Perfect with Welsh Rarebit, or cheese soufflé.

Pale clear yellow. Somewhat reductive at first, with a sharp, bitter swampiness. With 20 minutes of air it softens, offering aromas of struck flint, buttered nuts, sour melon, and citrus. Full-bodied with a creamy texture, it leaves the impression on the tongue of lemon butter, sweet daffodil, steel, and wet earth. The finish is somehow both lush and stony. A curious wine—or maybe capricious, like a sprite in springtime. 13% abv | $77 (sample)
