Producer note: As is usually the case I met this trip with Jacques Lardière, winemaker and technical director for Maison Jadot. Lardière essentially summed up the 2007 vintage by saying that it was "an incredible vintage from start to finish. April was unbelievably hot and the vegetation was more than one month in advance of a normal vintage, in fact it was even one week ahead of where we were in 2003 at the same point in the vegetative cycle. Even though the summer turned cool and stayed that way until mid-August, it's important to remember that the early season push ensured that everything the grapes needed was in them already. So, cool weather or not, the fruit developed well even without the usual summer warmth. There was good luminosity and that, coupled with two weeks of relatively warm weather during the second half of August, was enough to bring in grapes with good if not truly exceptional maturities. We began picking the pinot on the 31st of August and then followed with the chardonnay. The chardonnay was quite clean with good sugars and very good acidities and particularly rich in malic acidity. This of course meant that the malos were quite leisurely and some wines took a long time to finish. As to the wines, the '07s are quite pure and essentially, they are good examples of classic white burgundies. I particularly like the transparency to the underlying terroirs. Because there was a lot of malic acidity, the wines seem relatively approachable already yet I think they will eventually surprise people with their longevity." (Kobrand, Inc., www.kobrandwine.com, NY, NY; Hatch Mansfield Ltd., www.hatchmansfield.com, Uncorked Ltd, www.uncorked.co.uk, both UK). (88 Points) A pure, restrained and mildly austere nose speaks of floral and stone elements before merging into delicious, racy and equally pure middle weight flavors that possess good focus and a balanced, citrusy and lingering finish. While this is by no means an elegant or refined wine, it does offer very fine quality for what it is and is worth a look for excellent value, in fact, this would be a great choice for a house white.
