2012 ルイ・ジャド シュヴァリエ・モンラッシェ レ・ドゥモワゼル
Louis Jadot Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles Grand Cru from Louis Jadot has a slightly touch of reduction, but it merely enhances the bouquet that delivers pure beeswax, jasmine and honeysuckle aromas, just a hint of brioche that emerges with time. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with very well judged acidity. There is a lot of weight here, very focused and intense, a bolder and more extravagant Chevalier-Montrachet than Philippe Colins Chevalier-Montrachet. This is a grand cru that needs time to be tamed.
