  • Goedhuis, December 2016

    Due to the unusually small but high quality vintage in 2012 Maison Louis Jadot decided to blend a selection of their best premiers crus in Beaune to create this prestige cuvée. It reflects the very essence of the Beaun appellation. The list of crus detailed on the label and read like the who's who of Beaune, Le Clos des Ursules, Les Theuron, Les Cents Vignes, Les Greves, Les Bressandes etc. This very classical vintage is ideally suited to such an assemblage of vineyards. A very fine wine, beautifully aromatic, full of vibrant red cherry fruits, there is a tannic structure wonderfully supported by an inherent freshness. This wine epitomises the appellation, which is one of the most underrated in the Côte d'Or. High class in every way.

  • Goedhuis, June 2014, Score: 90-93

    Sweet rich dark berry fruits aroma. A beautiful example of the perfumed floral fruits that typifies the finest wines from the vineyards surrounding Beaune. Rich and juicy in the palate with soft ripe velvety tannins. A really rewarding wine that will give huge pleasure.

  • Antonio Galloni, June 2014, Score: 92-94

    Building off the considerable success of their 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary 1er Cru, Jadot has decided to make the wine again in top years. One of the highlights in this range, the 2012 boasts stunning power, depth and harmony. The lifted aromatics recall the Ursules, but here the fruit possesses more volume and creaminess. An explosive, layered finish rounds things out in style. Some of the parcels in the blend are Avaux, Cent Vignes, Pertuisots, Vignes Franches, Perrières, Toussaints and Chouacheux.

  • Burghound, April 2015, Score: 92

    A subtle touch of wood sets off ripe and relatively elegant notes of earth, dark cherry and spice. The mid-palate is dense, serious and powerful with plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the moderately austere, backward and built-to-age finale. While this is presently backward it should be approachable after 6 to 8 years of bottle age though note that it should live for a very long time. For readers having a child or grandchild in 2012 this would be a good choice to buy in quantity at a price that won't break the bank. Outstanding. Drink 2024+

Producer

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.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
