2017 Louis Jadot Domaine des Heritiers Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, displaying a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk and a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, tensile and tight-knit, with chewy structuring dry extract, tangy acids and a long, grippy finish. This is built for the cellar and will be well worth seeking out.Author: William KelleyIssue: End of January 2019
Vinous | Rating: 92The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was poured after the Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet, and I must admit, it rather pales by comparison, lacking the same penetration and mineral drive. The bouquet just seems rather static at the moment. The palate is balanced and quite rounded in the mouth, with a subtle spiciness, and almost yeasty toward the finish. Not bad, although not the best Grand Cru from Jadot this year. (DIAM GC closure)Drink Dates: 2020 - 2032Author: Neal MartinIssue: Jan 2019
James Suckling | Rating: 96This has beautiful purity with striking aromas of lemons and limes, as well as fresh yellow grapefruit and a strong, wet-stone edge. The palate has immense power with precision and focus, delivering a long and regal finish with such power and length. Three hectares in Corton with 1.8 planted to white grapes. Try from 2022.Drink Dates: 2022+Author: James SucklingIssue: Tuesday, February 12, 2019
