Goedhuis, November 2017
This vineyard lies at the very bullseye of the Beaune appellation and occupies part of the noteworthy Montagne de Beaune slope. It has a brilliant red cherry colour and a very finely fruited nose with a fresh, chalky palate, lending itself to early drinking enjoyment.
Neal Martin, December 2017,
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons has a generous bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit with a patina of burnt toast in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with sinewy tannin, good body for a Theurons with a grippy, assertive, chalky textured finish suggesting that it will benefit from three or four years in bottle. Drink 2020-2033
Decanter, January 2018,
The Theurons offers up a sweet bouquet of ripe red fruits, spice, wood smoke and rich soil, framed by new oak. On the palate the wine is medium-full, with supple but chalky tannins, and good depth on the sapid mid-palate. This should be very appealing early in its life. Drink 2020-2035
Maison Louis Jadot
Founded in 1859 by Louis Jadot, Maison Louis Jadot has always been situated in the centre of Beaune in the heart of the Burgundy vineyards. Managed by three generations of the Jadot family and then by the Gagey family assisted by Jacques Lardière in the cellar, Jadot is now directed by Pierre Henry Gagey, who has introduced a new wine making team, Frédéric Barnier and Guillaume Large. Since careful ageing in wooden barrels is so very important for the balance, aromas and the ageing potential of a great wine, in 1996, Louis Jadot entered into partnership with a firm of coopers, forming Cadus Cooperage, established in Ladoix Serrigny. This allows them to control their wood sourcing and the barrel production. Maison Louis Jadot now controls 105 hectares in Burgundy with more than 70 hectares in the Côte d'Or, exclusively in Premier and Grand Cru. They produce both negociant wines under the Maison Louis Jadot label and a number of Domaines: Gagey, Duc de Magenta, Louis Jadot and Héritiers de Louis Jadot.
The viticultural capital of Burgundy, Beaune was the headquarters to the Duchy in the 13th century and is now home to many winemakers and négociants. The appellation of Beaune includes both reds and white wines, though the quantity of red is significantly greater. The soils are predominantly sandier than either those to the north in Aloxe Corton or those to the south in Volnay or Pommard, producing wines that are supple and early drinking in nature. Similar to other surrounding Côte de Beaune appellations, there are no grand crus, but it does offer 42 premier cru sites, some of which are exceptional. These include Les Grèves, Les Teurons and Les Vignes Franches.
