Janots & Bos




A broad and full-bodied wine with the vintage's slightly lush character. Citrus, fennel and traces of anise are complemented by tangerine, peach, pineapple and balancing acidity with a slightly salty, mineral note. Slight barrel tone that integrates with age.Oak casks are almost always used for aging, but lightly toasted, and new casks are used very sparingly, as the cask must support the wine, not dominate it.Chassagne-Montrachet the southernmost of the three famous white wine communes Chassagne-M., Puligny-M. and Meursault. The surname of Chassagne, as the municipality was just called in the past, is due to the three Grand Crus. Eleven communes in the Côte d'Or used in the latter half of the 19th century the right to add their star mark(s) to their name.


En bred og fyldig vin med årgangens lidt yppige præg. Citrus, fennikel og spor af anis suppleres med mandarin, fersken, ananas og balancerende syre med et let salt, mineralsk præg. Lille fad-tone, som integreres med alderen. 

Der bruges næsten altid egefade til lagring, men let toastede, og nye fade bruges meget behersket, da fadet skal støtte vinen, ikke dominere den.

Chassagne-Montracheter den sydligste af de tre berømte hvidvins kommuner Chassagne-M., Puligny-M. og Meursault. Efternavnet til Chassagne, som kommunen blot hed tidligere, skyldes de tre Grand Cru'er. Elleve kommuner i Côte d'Or benyttede i sidste halvdel af 1800-tallet retten til at tilføje deres stjernemark(er) til deres navn.

The winery was founded in 2005 by Thierry Janots (1961), French, and Richard Bos (1967), Dutch. Two excellent winemakers with a passion for wines from the Côte d'Or, Bourgogne. In their winery in Meursault they make wines of the highest quality, brilliantly expressing the famous Burgundy terroir. They avoid additives and superfluous manipulations. They have known each other since they met in 1996 at the wine school, the Lyceé Viticole, in Beaune. Thierry has worked for numerous famous wineries, like Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour and Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Richard worked in the Netherlands in gastronomy. Almost ten years after his education in Beaune, he followed his heart and went back to Burgundy. In 2005 they decided to join forces and founded JanotsBos.

Vingården blev grundlagt i 2005 af Thierry Janots (1961), fransk, og Richard Bos (1967), hollandsk. To fremragende vinproducenter med en lidenskab for vin fra Côte d'Or, Bourgogne. På deres vingård i Meursault fremstiller de vine af højeste kvalitet og udtrykker glimrende den berømte Bourgogne-terroir. De undgår tilsætningsstoffer og overflødige manipulationer. De har kendt hinanden, siden de mødtes i 1996 på vinskolen, Lyceé Viticole, i Beaune. Thierry har arbejdet hos adskillige berømte vingårde som Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour og Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Richard arbejdede i Holland inden for gastronomi. Næsten ti år efter sin uddannelse i Beaune fulgte han sit hjerte og drog tilbage til Bourgogne. I 2005 besluttede de at gå sammen og grundlagde JanotsBos.

General grape descriptions


Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
