Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin reflects the quality characteristics of the commune. A deep color with a multifaceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full tannic structure and a mellow texture that carries into a lasting finish. A ripe yet markedly cool and restrained nose offers up notes of cassis, spice, earth, underbrush and menthol. There is a lovely mineral streak to the rich and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration and plenty of verve on the complex and impressively persistent finish. This is a fine Gevrey villages and worth your attention plus it is sufficiently pliant to enjoy young but should reward longer term cellaring as well.
This powerful and perfumed wine requires elaborate, flavorful foods such as leg of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and strong cheeses.
