Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2013,
    Score: 93-95

    The 2012 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru is more mild-mannered and serious on the nose when compared to the Echezeaux – poker-faced black fruit hand in hand with tertiary aromas. The palate is very refined with silky smooth tannins. This is very harmonious with impressive weight and sensuality towards the finish that fans out with more precision and grace than the Echezeaux, retaining tight control at every moment. Excellent.

    Antonio Galloni, January 2014,
    Score: 91-93

    The 2012 Grands Echézeaux wraps around the palate with silky red berries, spices, crushed flowers and mint. The Grands Echézeaux is one of the more open and expressive 2012s in the range, which leads me to think it will drink well relatively early. Feminine, gracious and a bit ethereal in style, the 2012 is very nicely balanced. Drink 2020-2034

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2014,
    Score: 92-95

    A slightly more complex and even a bit more elegant nose offers up notes of menthol, spice and very fresh red currant and wild raspberries that are set off by moderate wood influence. There is excellent richness to the mouth coating big-bodied flavors that brim with plenty of dry extract as well as solid power and muscle on the gorgeously long finale. This is at present very serious and while not rustic it's clear that this will require plenty of cellaring. Drink 2026+

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, January 2014,
    Score: 91-93

    Bright medium red. Cool, discreet aromas of black cherry, violet and menthol. Juicy, precise and tightly wound, with saline minerality adding another dimension to the raspberry and crushed stone flavors. But hard to judge today as this very uncompromising wine is showing limited sweetness and flesh.

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.

Grands Echézeaux

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Much more compact and homogenous than the neighbouring Echezeaux, the Grands Echézeaux vineyards are owned by around twenty producers - very modest in Burgundian terms. The most celebrated producers include Domaines de la Romanee Conti, d'Eugenie and Mongeard-Mugneret. These fine wines are richly complex yet balanced and have enormous ageing potential.
