Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($245) Pale-medium yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of dried fruits, honey, nutty oak, clove and iodine. Big, rich and sweet but lively, with good mineral firmness and sound acidity buffering the wine's alcoholic power (this is a solid 14%). A bit youthfully aggressive on the finish but very long. Jadot buys both fruit and must for this wine, all from the Puligny side of this grand cru.

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17.5

The Bâtard-Montrachet vineyard lies just below and parallel to Le Montrachet across the breadth of the slope. The largest of the five Grands Crus, its 11.7ha are divided between Puligny with 6ha, and Chassagne with 5.7ha. Bâtard-Montrachet is generally ranked third in stature among these Grands Crus; its ownership is extremely piecemeal, the largest holding totalling 1.9ha. Maison Louis Jadot carries out a traditional vinification in primarily new oak casks, to underscore and highlight the qualities of this great wine. CS Very rich and dense. Lots of acidity and chew – not much flattery,. Surprisingly. A little low key. Just a bit too tight and introvert.

Rich and alomost Sauternes like in its approach and up front fruit, then gives away a long dry chalk and steel finish which lasts at least 30 seconds - truly profund wine

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
