    Shining lemon colour. Exotic yellow fruit aromas, honeysuckle and rose petal. This Chassagne has tremendous purity, with a mouth-watering mineral edge. Excellent weight and a firm structure, flow into a charming finish of quince. Silky and graceful.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Abbaye de Morgeot 1er Cru has a very harmonious bouquet, fine mineralité and tension, focused and displaying impressive energy. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity quite complex and poised with just the right amount of bitterness on the finish to urge you back. Very fine. This should age with style. Closure: Diam. Drink 2025 - 2045

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    After many decades of working this fine 1er Cru Monopole, 2020 is sadly Louis Jadot’s last vintage as their long-standing arrangement with the Duc de Magenta has now come to an end. They certainly are going out in style; this is a great cuvée in 2020. Full of fresh almonds, crunchy nuts and Cornish fudge. A bold and broad style, showing off the weighted texture of Chassagne Montrachet, with huge depth and persistence.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle 1er Cru has a taut, fresh, vibrant bouquet with yellow flowers intermixed with light citrus scents, gravel and jasmine. The palate is smooth and harmonious, tangerine and nectarine on the entry, moderate weight with a slightly pithy finish. I am intrigued to see how this will develop. Closure: Diam. Drink 2025 - 2042

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    Louis Jadot have owned vineyards in Corton Charlemagne since the 19th century, with their vineyards lying on the westerly side by Corton Pougets. This is such a great example of this historic Grand Cru, with a mass of fresh crunchy nuts, and a hint of orange zest and mint. This is a deep, full wine, with great intensity balanced by a bright purity and mineral edge. Superb all round.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 93-95

    The 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a lifted, liquorice-tinged bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass (and has not problem following on from Jadot’s Montrachet!) The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the crisp citrus fruit laced with orange pith, stem ginger and white pepper. There is real cohesion and persistence on the finish - just an excellent Corton-Charlemagne. Closure: Diam. Drink 2027 - 2060

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    This Monopole vineyard purchased by Louis Jadot in 1826 sits within the 1er Cru Vignes Franches on the Pommard side of the appellation. Perfumed red cherry fruit aromas, an appealing direct style. With good tension and grip, the flavours build in the mouth expressing attractive characters of bilberry and a touch of spice.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Beaune Clos des Ursules 1er Cru has a very dense and quite intense bouquet, a melange of red and black fruit, tobacco and a touch of graphite. An underlying marine element becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, fresh and vibrant but with quite a sturdy backbone and certainly the spiciest on the finish of the six Beaune Premier Crus from Jadot. Long term potential here. Drink 2026 - 2045

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    Deep black olive colour, this is full of dark morello cherry and black fruit flavours. Quite a dense wine reflecting the high iron content in the Clos des Chenes soil. This has superb structure, the firmness in character perfectly balances the sweet blackberry fruit flavours. Excellent strength and satisfyingly long flavours.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru comprises of one 456-litre barrel this year. It has a very well-defined bouquet with seamlessly integrated oak and impressive mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine delineation, just a little chewiness on the entry but there is tension interwoven into this Volnay from start to finish, plus great persistency. Superb. Drink 2025 - 2042

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    This is an outstanding 1er Cru, sitting on the southerly side of the village next to the border of Puligny Montrachet and its 1er Cru Referts. A very true Meursault style full of warm exotic fruits, with a touch of melon, passionfruit, and clotted cream. Its warmth and richness are kept nicely in tow by a zip of freshness, leaving a long impression of vibrant minerality at the end. Excellent.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 90-92

    The 2020 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru was showing a bit of reduction on the nose that made it difficult to read. The palate more expressive with a fine bead of acidity, lightly spiced citrus fruit laced with dessicated orange peel and stem ginger, the finish quite spicy and satisfying. Give this 4-5 years in bottle. Closure: Diam. Drink 2025 - 2045

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    Situated on the higher slopes of Chambolle Musigny, this vineyard is a neighbour to Grand Cru Bonnes Mares and has a very similar soil formation. Always a later ripening location, hence its initial reticence. It still showed an excellent central core of deep wild forest fruit flavours and the lively freshness which is the hallmark of this cooler lying vineyard.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91 - 93

    The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru has a reserved bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, black pepper, allspice and just a hint of pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, fresh and lightly spiced with a harmonious, almost Vosne-like finish where I just wanted to see a little more mineralité. Let’s see if it gains some during the remainder of its barrel maturation. 91 - 93 points. Drink 2025 - 2042

  • Goedhuis, December 2021

    Domaine Louis Jadot has a substantial holding of 2 hectares in this famous Grand Cru at the lower end of the vineyard, which coped perfectly with the drier 2020 summer conditions. This was absolutely singing at the time of tasting. Vibrant energetic aromas of raspberry and tayberry. Rich and opulent, with a fabulous volume of fruit and to its advantage, less muscle than some other wines in the appellation. Very layered, finishing with a sweet confidence that leaves a huge smile on the face.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is deep in colour. It comes across a little oaky on the nose at the moment, a bit impenetrable. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, ripe and fleshy, quite sweet on the finish, but maybe missing the noblesse of its peers at the moment. Drink 2026 - 2050
