Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 96

Jadot has seriously upgraded the quality of their Montrachet over the past few vintages and while it's always been good (consider the incredible '96), the last few efforts have been at another level. The '02 offers sublimely complex aromas of white flowers and citrus wrapped in a gentle hint of wood spice followed by sappy, powerful, mouth coating, pungent flavors of superb density and weight. Ripe and vibrant acid keep everything in perfect balance and this should drink well for a long time. In short, this is class in a glass and a knockout effort.

Extremely heavy so not much nose though with the odd citrus top note discernible. Still too low key to show its real potential but this seems slightly stodgy next to the other Grand Cru whites.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 2002 Montrachet was re-tasted in early February, 2004 immediately after bottling. It reveals a highly expressive nose of sap-laden rocks, spices, and ginger. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied, velvety-textured effort is seamless, rich, broad, and ample. Loads of spices, hazelnuts, cloves, pears, and honeyed minerals can be discerned in its complex, harmonious character. Its pure, lush personality and impressively bold flavors linger throughout its long, suave finish. Given that this wine had recently been subjected to filtration and the shock of being bottled, I have every confidence in the world that it will gain even more power, flesh, and length over the next 2-3 years.
