Louis Jadot Bienvenues Batard Montrachet 2011, 750mL (BH92-94, ST91+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Louis Jadot Bienvenues Batard Montrachet

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: France--Burgundy--White
Appellation: Puligny Montrachet, Cote de Beaune

BH92-94, ST91+
Rated 92-94 points by the Burghound: `A deft but not invisible touch of wood frames ripe but cool and beautifully layered aromas of honeysuckle, essence of pear and white peach that are trimmed in delicate spice nuances. Here too there is excellent volume to the concentrated and extract-rich medium weight plus flavors that display very fine persistence on the lemon-infused finish. This is more powerful than it usually is but sacrifices none of its finesse.`More info about this producer from the Burghound: `For the first time in all the years that I have been visiting Maison Jadot, I did not meet with Jacques Lardiere because he, after 43 years with Jadot, has taken his much deserved retirement. Instead, I met with Jacques` replacement and new technical director Frederic Barnier, who describes 2011 as having had a `very early and particularly dry spring that turned out to be even 3 weeks more advanced than the similar period in 2003. The hydric stress that had developed during the spring though was more than compensated by a very wet, cool and cloudy summer that continued through the first half of August. Happily the weather turned and the second half of August was notably better and much warmer, which had the effect of spiking maturities. It was great for the pinot noir though we began to be concerned about falling acidity levels in chardonnay. We began picking the chardonnay on the 30th of August. Yields were down significantly, which is to say between 25 and 35% less than a normal crop. The chardonnay averaged around 12.5% in terms of potential alcohols. As I mentioned, in the second half of August we started to become concerned with falls acidities in the chardonnay and to that end we elected to retain between 30 and 50% of the malic acidity. As to the style of the whites, they are very showy, forward and tender and should have the estimable attribute of drinking well young yet be capable of aging over the medium-term as well.` Barnier noted that in 2011 all of Jadot`s whites will be bottles under Diam Grand Cru corks (which are longer than the Diam 10 model). `
