RATINGS

96James Suckling

The purity and beauty to this wine is certainly impressive with raspberry, blueberry and lavender aromas. Simple character on the palate with a full body, chewy and round tannins and a savory finish, leaving flint, dried black-tea and spice on the aftertaste. Very impressive.

94Wine Enthusiast

...generous wine full of dark tannins, black fruits and a dense texture. Ripe black-cherry flavors are balanced by good acidity...

93The Wine Advocate

...beautifully pure bouquet of red cherries, plums, subtle spices and citrus peel... On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegant and velvety, with excellent depth at the core, succulent acids and a long, precise finish.

93Wine Spectator

Captivating aromas of violet, black currant and black cherry are the hallmarks of this elegant red. Intense, featuring saturated flavors driven by vibrant acidity and embedded in the matrix of tannins. Shows excellent length, with a mineral accent.

89-92Vinous / IWC

Aromas of cherry and flowers are complemented by a hint of mocha. Plusher in texture than the Bressandes but also with good reserve to its flavors of dark cherry and menthol. Turns more imploded and medicinal on the back half, ultimately finishing with a firm tannic spine.

16Jancis Robinson

Chewy and red-fruited on the palate, a touch of strawberry sweetness. Dry textured but with juicy fruit at the core.

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.

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.
