Some wines to watch this vintage…
2018 Beaune “Celebration” 1er Cru Blend
The fruit is worked a little harder during ferment than is normal for Jadot’s wines, with the end product being a strongly flavoured and structured wine capable of cellaring past 2 decades.
2018 Beaune "Clos des Ursules” 1er Cru
Always a favourite, the Clos des Ursules monopole is the vineyard first purchased by Jadot back in 1826. It’s powerful, substantial and complex
2018 Gevrey Chambertin
Very rich offering, with phenomenal concentration of flavour for a village wine.
2018 Gevrey Chambertin “Clos St Jacques” 1er Cru
One of the top 1er Cru vineyards in all of Burgundy. This is such a complete and thoroughly fulfilling wine. Complexity and all-round completeness, encapsulating 4 distinct soil types found in the vineyard.
2018 Corton Pougets Grand Cru
A Domaine holding for Louis Jadot, and also the source of their excellent Corton Charlemagne, this was unanimously well received by all 3 reviewers.
2018 Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru
Another jewel for the Domaine, Jadot own a very old parcel of over 90 years of age within the elegant Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru. With age, the Chapelle Chambertin reveals itself as thoroughly long and elegant, belying the wines upfront fruit and intensity of youth.
