RATINGS

94James Suckling

This has the feel of a red wine with layers of fruit and phenolics that give it tannin tension. Full-bodied with dried apples and lemons with stone and mineral highlights.

90-92The Wine Advocate

...pretty bouquet of pear, peach, white flowers and almonds giving way to a medium to full-bodied, succulent but open-knit palate...

90-92Vinous / IWC

...displaying more breeding and complexity...palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity that cuts through the passion fruit, lemon zest and pineapple notes. A dab of lemongrass emerges toward the persistent finish. Excellent.

15.5Jancis Robinson

Pineapple and fleshy pears on the nose. Thick, rich and warming on the palate with opulent stone fruits and sweet smoke. Peppery, heady and nutty through to the finish.

PRODUCER

Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy’s most respected negociants. Founded in 1859 by the Jadot family, the prestige and quality of the estate’s wines were well established in the 19th century. The family continued buying highly desirable vineyards in the 20th century. In 1985 the estate was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s American importer. Located in Beaune, the estate has 336 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Though all the maison’s wines are known for their high quality, signature wines are the Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Close de Beze, Chevalier-Montrachet les Demoiselles, Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Musigny. Pierre-Henry Gagey is president.
