Domaine Louis Jadot, Echézeaux Grand Cru 2011, Beaune, France
Tasting Note: A fine pinot noir.
Red fruit dominates the nose of this ruby-colored red burgundy but it is not the individual fruit components that stand out but rather the overall unified red fruit quality that characterizes the nose along with a slight aroma of dewy, wet earth.
The aromas on the nose continue to the palate, but it is the chalky acidity that takes center stage rather than the fruit.
The tannin in this pinot noir is very light. With more time in the bottle perhaps the acidity/chalkiness will recede or fruit will catch up.
