Wine Advocate | Rating: 94A classic amalgam of dark cherry, licorice, and rose petal entices the taster of Jadot's 2008 Chambertin Clos de Beze, which displays an uncanny alliance of creaminess and vivacity, richness and almost delicate elegance. Brown spices, chalk, iodine, and cyanic fruit pit bitterness add further counterpoint to the wine's caressing texture and sweetness of fruit. This finishes with terrific persistence. I envision at least two decades and perhaps a quarter century's fascination and enticement.Author: David Schildknecht
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96Medium red. Pungent red berry and mocha aromas are lifted by powerful crushed-stone minerality and complicated by an ineffable floral/earthy perfume. A real essence of 2008 on the palate, with outstanding sappy cut and penetration to the flavors of cherry, red berries, minerals and spice oil. The building finish spreads out inexorably to saturate the palate. Rigorous and stimulating: a wine of extraordinary complexity, energy and depth. This was one of my top 2008s from barrel a year ago and it's at least as impressive in bottle.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2011
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Very dark for a Jadot 2008, like the Clos St-Denis. Even a hint of blue in there! Smudgier nose than the Clos St-Denis with a slight hint of rawness. A bit tight and introvert. Less expressive than the Clos St-Denis but it may soften into something more delightful. Rather raw note on the end.Author: Jancis Robinson
