jadot 2005 bourgogne chardonnay

2005 Louis Jadot, Bourgogne Chardonnaytry to find this wine...
2002 was fantastic and 2004 was very good, so I bought a six-pack of 2005 blind! The nose is pretty classic for this bottling with faintly oaky, sweet depth, pear fruit and some higher tones – eventually a little minerality too in this vintage. This has a slightly different stance to the plusher 2002, it’s very well balanced but throughout the mid-palate and into the finish it’s rather more mineral with slowly lingering acidity. Less facile than the very user friendly 2002, I think this will also be rather long lived. Excellent
Rebuy – Yes

    I drank the Domaine Louis Jadot ’99 Clos de Lyse, Chateau des Jacques, Bourgogne Blanc only last night. Entirely satisfactory.

    […] It’s not a cheap example of St.Aubin, but on this hot evening it’s certainly an impressive one; it’s open and very tasty. It actually followed a bottle of Jadot’s 2005 bourgogne chardonnay, and despite the quality of that wine, this is a major quality advancement. […]

    […] for my house wine I’d still rather pay the 50% extra and go for the Drouhin Chablis or the Jadot. Rebuy – […]
