Louis Jadot Chardonnay Comparison            by Marty Cook

Please join us with Host Joe Via on Sunday, August 8th at 3:30 pm Eastern/New York Time for an hour long presentation that will explain and lead us through tasting of Chardonnay wines from the Burgundy region of France. Did  you know that a white, Burgundy wine is, by definition, almost always a Chardonnay? Joe will demonstrate this by comparing three white, Burgundy wines from Maison Louis Jadot that are all made from the Chardonnay grape. With oak, with-out oak and Pouilly-Fuisse (po͞oˌyē fwēˈsā). Huh?

This will be a tasting and discussion about three Louis Jadot white, Burgundy’s (Chardonnay’s). Three rather different Chardonnay’s.  Joe will discuss how each of these wines has its own distinctions and application for food pairing. The discussion will also touch upon basic Burgundy geography and weather. Grapes will be discussed with maps of the Burgundy region; but, the discussion will ultimately zero in on the Mâconnais district which is located in the south of the Burgundy wine region in France. The three wines selected will also help us understand the French Appellation of Origin (AOC) system. Like zeroing in on a bulls-eye, each wine tasted will take us a little closer to the center. And, what better time to learn more about Chardonnay than on a hot August afternoon!

All three of these offerings have standard store availability in Pennsylvania Fine Wine & Good Spirits Stores at affordable prices.

 

Louis Jadot White Burgundy

PA LCB Code #6406

$18.99

“This Bourgogne Chardonnay is a fruity wine showing aromas of flowers and fruit flesh; it is harmonious and very pleasant. Ideally it can be drunk with vegetable terrines, poultry, goat cheese but also as an apéritif. It will be very pleasant at a temperature between 10 to 12°C. After 2 or 3 years of aging, other aromas will develop allowing this chardonnay to be paired with a more sophisticated cuisine.”    –Winemaker notes

 

Louis Jadot Macon Villages Chardonnay

PA LCB Code #7206

$15.99

“The Mâcon Villages area is located in the southern part of Burgundy, close to the Beaujolais area. This appellation is the largest of the Mâconnais area, covering about 2 500 ha of vineyards and 43 communes. Forty three villages have the right to produce Mâcon Blanc Villages. Mâcon Villages are only white wines. The wines are made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. The limestone subsoil of the Monts du Mâconnais are ideal for growing the Chardonnay grapes. Some small areas produce exceptional wines. The Louis Jadot Mâcon Blanc Villages is made from grapes from these different areas.”  –Winemaker notes

 

Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuisse

PA LCB Code #6411

$27.99

“Deep straw—yellow. Opulent cream and toast aromas. Moderately full—bodied, ripe palate with vibrant acidity. Supple and drinking beautifully. Drink now.”

–Winemaker notes

 

So, plan now to pick up some or all three of the above Louis Jadot wines that we will  discuss and join us on Zoom (the link is shown below) on Sunday, August 8th at 3:30 pm Eastern Time to learn more about the nuance that can be found in three wines from the same region. We look forward to seeing you!
