Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16Gentle dark-red fruit and a hint of spice, just slightly stalky too. The oak jumps in on the palate and there's just enough fruit to hold its own with the oak. Dry, just avoids austerity but it does lack fruit in the middle. They have made a good fist of it and in time it should be blossom into something elegant. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
Rating: 94Initially dominated by oak, this needs air to reveal the macerated cherry, strawberry, mineral and earth flavors. Tightly wound, yet the ripe fruit shows depth. Sweet fruit and dense tannins define the finish. Patience is required. Best from 2021 through 2038. 170 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 93The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savory on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervositAc or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine, but I would like to see more nuance develop during the rest of its Aclevage.Author: Neal Martin
Rating: 91There is ample wood and menthol present on the dark cherry, earth and saddle leather suffused nose where a very subtle hint of volatile acidity arises. I like the mouth feel to the medium-bodied and ultra-suave flavors thanks mostly to the notably fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a very firm, serious, powerful and youthfully austere finish. This is one of those wines that isn't technically perfect yet has many other positive attributes and if you're not sensitive to VA then you may find this somewhat more interesting than I did.Author: Allen Meadows
Rating: 90Bright medium red. A strong element of spicy oak currently overshadows red raspberry, red licorice and minerals on the nose. Slightly liqueur-like but not especially complex, with savory but very oaky red berry fruit flavors dominating. I find this a bit ponderous and lacking in refinement. It's also a touch dry on the finish, as there's not as much supporting mid-palate depth as in the top crus vinified by Jadot from estate vineyards. - Stephen Tanzer
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. Jadot's portfolio includes wines from regional appellations, Chablis, the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais, and Beaujolais.
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.
