  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    Ruchottes-Chambertin, a big, powerful, muscular, structured, almost savage wine, is impressive because of its weight and intensity, but it needs some time to reveal all its charm and finesse. The 1988 is one of Jadot's most backward wines from this vintage, and should prove to be very special if it is aged for the 6-8 years it requires to round into form: it should drink well through the first decade of the twenty-first century.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Tough, hard-edged and firmly tannic, but it has a solid core of currant and berry flavors on its compact structure. Needs lots of time to soften and broaden; should be best after 1995 to '98. 175 cases made.

  • Maison Louis Jadot has been in the town of Beaune since 1859, and has a stellar reputation for producing wines of excellent value. Jadot's principles of vinification balance tradition and technology and focus on the purest expression of the terroir. Jadot aims to cultivate its vines with consideration for the environment and the microbial life of the soils.

    Maison Louis Jadot controls 105 hectares of "domaine" property that is divided into four groups: Domaine Louis Jadot, Domaine Gagey, Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot, and Domaine du Duc de Magenta. As a negociant-élévateur, Jadot also cultivates long-term partnerships with many growers which allows the representation of a larger range of appellations.
