Wine Spectator | Rating: 94A linear, dense style, this reveals a beam of cherry, currant and floral notes, backed by a mineral underpinning. Serious tannins and bracing acidity suggest this has the potential to age. Shows plenty of energy. Best from 2020 through 2036.Author: James Laube
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95Bright medium red. Liqueur-like ripeness to its complex, soil-driven drive scents of red berries, dried cherry, musky underbrush and minerals, with treble notes of dried flowers and blood orange contributing sexy lift. Large-scaled but remarkably light on its feet, showing almost painful energy to its cranberry and pomegranate fruit flavors. This baby is alive! But it's also very tight and in need of long aging to show its inherent sweetness. This wonderfully concentrated, deep 2013 transcends its vintage.Author: Stephen Tanzer
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Mid cherry red. There seems to be a hint of sweet, spicy oak on the nose. Lots of ripe fruit and palate impact but overall a little light and tentative. It will probably take on flesh but is not definitively grand cru status at the moment. Lots of tannin on the end. Round and persistent but not insistent.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2013 Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru has a touch more intensity on the nose when compared directly against the Chambertin '13. It is very well defined and the oak is seamlessly embroidered into the red and black brambly fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin: supple in the mouth with hints of marmalade and Asian spice toward the vibrant finish. Excellent, though the Chambertin has the edge in terms of sophistication.Author: Neal Martin
JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 96The perfume and beauty in this wine shows enticing aromas of strawberry, rose, lilac, citrus and hints of soil. Full-bodied, layered and gorgeous. So sexy and exciting. The finish lasts for minutes. Really mesmerizing. Better in 2019.Author: James Suckling

As a negociant-élévateur, Jadot also cultivates long-term partnerships with many growers which allows the representation of a larger range of appellations.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
