Wine of the Week: 2009 Louis Jadot 'Couvent des Jacobins' Pinot Noir
A good, earthy Burgundy for less than $20? I couldn't believe it. And not some plonk from a shady négociant but a lovely expression of Pinot Noir from the respected house of Louis Jadot. Named for the 15th century convent where Jadot used to make its wines until the 1970s, the grapes for this wine come from the Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune, plus a little from the Côtes de Nuits.
