RATINGS

95James Suckling

Very beautiful aromas of strawberries, flowers and stones. Medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows lovely, linear brightness and texture.

94Wine Enthusiast

This wine is structured, with some firm tannins and great concentration.

91-93The Wine Advocate

...incipiently complex bouquet of raspberries, plums, candied peel, licorice, grilled meats and warm spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered...

90-92Vinous / IWC

...lovely red and black fruit nose that feels harmonious and assured...palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red fruit and fine grip. .fine precision and persistence on the finish. Excellent.

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.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Les Vignes Franches

Les Vignes Franches is 24-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the southern part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is one of Beaune’s 44 vineyards that is either partly or entirely Premier Cru. Beaune has no Grand Cru.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
