Louis Jadot Pommard les Rugiens 2010, 750mL (BH91-94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Louis Jadot Pommard les Rugiens

750mL

Vintage: 2010
Region: France--Burgundy--Red
Appellation: Pommard, Cote de Beaune
Producer: Jadot, Louis

BH91-94
Rated 91-94 points by the Burghound: `(from Rugiens-Bas). Here the very toasty oak aromas presently dominate the otherwise ripe underlying fruit. There is good freshness and verve to the exceptionally rich, powerful and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that exude a finer minerality that continues onto the gorgeously long finish. There is so much density of material that it seems reasonably certain that the strong toast will be successfully integrated in time. A very impressive showing though again I underscore that this is only for the patient.`More information from the Burghound: `As is usually the case, I met with Jacques Lardiere who is the technical director for Jadot. His take on the 2010 vintage was that `it didn`t start out well for us as we had considerable frost-related losses from the deep freeze that occurred in December 2009. Then, the flowering did not go well either, which further reduced yields, particularly in red. Then, we were hit by hail in August, primarily in Santenay. Ironically, the reduced crop loads basically saved the harvest in my view because otherwise given the cool summer weather we would never have achieved adequate ripeness levels. But I`m not joking when I say that yields were down as we were off some 50% in the Cote de Nuits where we had the worst of the frost damage and around 40% overall. We picked one vineyard on the 17th of September and then stopped before recommenced on the 22. The crop was exceptionally clean in the Cote de Nuits but a bit less so in the Cote de Beaune as there was more rain in the southern part. For the reds potential alcohols averaged right around 12.5%, which is perfectly acceptable. We did a total cuvaison that averaged 27 days with a largely typical vinification for us. As to the standout villages, in the Cote de Nuits I really like what we obtained in Nuits and Chambolle and in the Cote de Beaune Volnay really shined. Overall, because of the low yields and very high incidence of shot berries, the 2010s are quite concentrated and because of that I decided to use a bit more new wood than usual.``
