Wine Spectator | Rating: 92A full, fleshy style, featuring red and black cherry notes, with a vibrant structure. Ripe and ample, it's elements should fold together nicely in three to four years. Nice lingering finish. 200 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90From deeper soils at the southern end of the commune, a 2005 Beaune Boucherottes seems to reflect its more water-retentive site in a more polished surface and refined tannins than many of its siblings. Bright and tart cherry and plum mingle with smoky bacon and charred beef , carrying into a convincingly long, pungent, juicy, yet substantial and meaty finish. This should drink well after just a couple of years of rest. Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth, but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines, which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these - particularly from the Cote de Beaune - displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration, traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites. A brief July rain that reached the Cote de Nuits but not the Cote de Beaune was critical, he asserts, and all of Jadot's vines in the northern Cote were picked before the harvest in the south commenced.Author: David Schildknecht
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Quite dark crimson. Mossy nose and lots of juicy fruit before a notably dry finish. Very 'serious' without being heavy handed. Definitely made for the long term - though again quite lively and sprightly. Long after bitter cherry flavours.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 08-05-2007
Burghound | Rating: 92This is finer and more elegant still with airy intense red berry fruit aromas that are in perfect keeping with the sweet, supple and beautifully precise flavors that manage to retain that very Beaune quality of generosity on the perfectly balanced, long and pure finish. A striking effort and recommended.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 2nd Quarter, 2007
Self | Rating: 91Popped and poured. Drank over a few hours. Consistent notes with same wine tried in 2014. Medium plus bright ruby color. Nose of dark red fruits and earth. A fairly big wine owing to the vintage. Rich mouth-feel with good balance of fruit, acid and tannins. Lots of life ahead! Great value!Drink Dates: 2015-2025Author: Todd W59
