Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

Super-spicy blackberries and black cherries make up the aromatic profile of the 2003 Clos Vougeot. While Jadot's parcel in this grand cru is sometimes derided for its location (reaching down to the wall by the N74), in 2002 and 2003 - two vintages where water-retaining soils were advantageous - the results have been glorious. Its dense, pure personality is medium to full-bodied, chewy-textured, crammed with dark cherries, and immensely concentrated. This awesomely deep, muscular, and persistent wine is masculine and displays exceptional ripeness.

Chocolate anyone? That's the main flavor, with accents of black cherry, plum and cassis. It's firm, but there's a sweetness and intensity that balances the tannins. Fine, cassis-filled finish. 385 cases imported.

($120) Bright medium red. Very ripe but unforthcoming nose hints at violet. Then supple, rich and very concentrated, but not yet showing its complexity. This doesn't appear to possess the energy of Jadot's best '03s but this very solidly constructed wine may simply be in an awkward stage. Finishes with sweet, broad tannins and excellent length.

Burghound | Rating: 88-90

A high-toned nose of menthol, plum, prune, earth and smoked game leads to exceptionally ripe, low acid, full, generous and palate saturating flavors with a powerful, incredibly dense and notably tannic finish. This is a robust, muscular and masculine wine that is too ripe for me but it will outlive us all.

Very well-made, but hardly spectacular with predominant nose of dark cherries. Smooth and polished with some pleasant tannins and a so-so finish which may develop further as it evolves.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
