International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95($250) Medium red Deep, smoky nose shows a medicinal reserve to its raspberry fruit and flinty minerality. Deep, large-scaled and smoky, with outstanding palate-saturating breadth and generosity of texture. Voluptuous in the style of the vintage's best examples, and yet this has real sap. This voluminous, generous wine finishes with outstanding length and fully ripe tannins. One of the great wines of the vintage, and likely to go on for a couple of decades, at least.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94A dense, concentrated style, packed with black cherry, black currant and licorice flavors. So dense, it's almost chewy, with a sweet essence and a long, spice-tinged finish. Massive for the vintage, this will need time to strut its stuff.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Burghound | Rating: 94An intensely spicy red berry fruit nose is expressive to the point of exuberance while introducing the hugely rich, full, intense and broad-shouldered flavors that possess real energy and drive on the sappy, mouth coating and stunningly long full-bodied flavors that display outstanding depth. There is a serious amount of dry extract that makes this appear less structured than it is in reality. A most impressive effort that is less mineral-driven but a bit tighter than the Chambertin, at least at this early stage.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 2nd Quarter, 2009
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Rose, iris, black tea, humus, cinnamon, black raspberry, and suggestions of red meat complexly scent the Jadot 2007 Chambertin Clos de Beze, following on a firm slightly chewy but satisfyingly buffered and positively dense palate. Ripe raspberry and plum as well as brown spices emphasize the sweet side of the wine's personality as it launches into a long finish. Unlike the corresponding Chambertin, here I suspect that the tannins will remain supportive while fading even further into the fabric of a wine that combines the ripeness and generosity inherent in the best 2007s with an unusual degree of mouthwatering, soy-like savor as well as the structure and energy to support 12-15 years of aging if one chooses.Author: David Schildknecht
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18The Clos de BŠze vineyard is the oldest of Gevrey's vineyards, planted by the monks of the Abbey of BŠze after its bequest to them in 630AD by Duke Amalgaire of Burgundy. It occupies a rectangular 15.4ha plot in the centre ofGevrey's grand cru slope just north of Le Chambertin. Domaine Louis Jadot controls 0.83ha in Clos de BŠze of which half were acquired in 1985 through the purchase of Domaine Clair Da, with the balance under long-term contract.A little smoky at first, then lots of juicy freshness on the palate. Very fine grained, tight and very moreish and very very long. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
