Jadot, who has important holdings in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, is increasingly becoming one of that appellation's most important high-quality producers. All of the 1993 Gevrey-Chambertins I tasted were tannic wines, with the better examples exhibiting more ripeness and sweetness to hopefully complement their firmness and structure. The Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques is sterner, tougher, and more tannic than the Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles St.-Jacques. Although this is usually one of my favorite wines from the Jadot portfolio, I found this austere wine to be reminiscent of some 1975 Bordeaux - too tannic. While it possesses deep fruit, the wine's leanness raises suspicions about how well it will evolve. It is a serious, ambitiously constructed wine, but will the fruit be there in 10-15 years?|Jadot produced a high percentage of successful wines in 1993. There are also disappointments, particularly in the lower appellations which have turned out tough and tannic. There is no Jadot house style, save for rich, well-delineated, structured wines that stand the test of time. As a vintage, 1993 is less consistently excellent than 1990 or 1989.|In 1988, all the grand crus were bottled without filtration. That vintage was followed in 1990 and subsequent vintages, with all the premier and grand crus bottled without fining or filtration.|Importer: Kobrand Corp., New York, NY; tel.
