Tasting Notes"Impressively youthful saturated dark red color. Deep, brooding aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice and tobacco reminded me of Bordeaux, if not Pauillac. Hugely rich, tactile and mouthfilling, with its fleshy black cherry and violet flavors conveying a strong impression of inky depth without coming across as heavy. A classically dry, medicinal grand cru in a distinctly masculine style, this has the stuffing and structure to last 50 years. Spreads out horizontally on the back end, finishing with building ripe, dusty tannins and palate-staining length. Not the last word in finesse but this is an uncanny powerhouse of a Burgundy. Fans of the style may rate it even higher than I do. (13.2% alcohol; 3.33 pH; 3.6 g/l acidity). Tasted March 2019. 94 points Drink 2019 - 2038" Vinous.com (ST)

Tasting NotesEX-DOMAINE------"The barest touch of menthol sits atop cool sauvage-inflected aromas of red berries, humus, earth and a hint of oak. The attractively delineated and refined middle weight flavors exhibit good detail, minerality and verve before culminating in a super-saline finish that is shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins. This is very Clos Prieur in character. Lovely stuff. Drink 2022+. 91 points." Burghound

Tasting Notes"Rose, cherry and spice aromas introduce this light-bodied, saturated version.

Tasting NotesMore structure to this than the Échezeaux Orveaux, but still very approachable now. Peppery spice, super fine tannins and a softness to the fruit, so unusual to taste GC wines so open at this stage, really delightful. RKL "Cask sample. Mid cherry red. Smells ripe and sweet and generous in its red fruit. A touch peppery. Gorgeous harmony between ripe, fresh, generous fruit and well-modulated structure. Succulent, fine, mildly chewy and seems remarkably accessible even now. Very, very long." 18 points jancisrobinson.com (JH)

Tasting NotesA little closed on the nose (tasted on an extremely damp, foggy day, low air-pressure subduing some aromas) but meaty and savoury, with a tremendously fleshy, plump mid-palate and structured tannins. Dominique commented that Côte de Nuits Villages growers are increasingly looking at plots at the tops of their slopes. Labelled as 'Hautes Côtes', they often echo the style of the nearby village. Serious and structured Burgundy from a Chambolle grower but at an 'Hautes Côtes' price. RKL.

Tasting Notes30 to 60 year old vines. "Très jolie' on the nose, delicate floral (violet, peony) and mineral crushed rock notes. Blackcurrant and mint tones at the core, very fine and open now. As with the other wines tasted so far, this seems to have an honesty and sincerity - reflecting the personality of the wine maker. The elegant style of Les Charmes comes from the high limestone content of the soils here. RKL

Tasting NotesFrom vines directly above our heads, growing in a plot in Dominique's back garden, beneath which his newly excavated cellar lies. Broad, earthy and spiced on the nose. Fills out further on the palate, with a persistence to the length, (Les Charmes is more linear by comparison). Dominique suggests 6-7 years in bottle for the Les Charmes but an additional 2 years for Les Cras. RKL

Tasting Notes(Vines planted 1914) "Les Fourneaux is a lieu-dit within the Clos Rousseau Premier Cru, which is widely regarded as one of the Santenay's best sites. Most of the vineyard was planted right back in 1914 and this is often a wine that marries concentration and structure. Smartly oaked in 30% new wood, it's a spicy, intense, well-balanced Pinot Noir with black cherry fruit and a spine of serious tannins. 2023-2032. 94 points." Tim Atkin MW, Decanter, Oct 2018

Tasting NotesElegant blackcurrant fruit with wonderful purity, very fine and elegant fine but the duration leaves no doubt about GC status, building on the palate (pheasant's tail....). Wonderfully elegant. RKL "The 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is another of the portfolio's high-points this year, bursting with aromas of wild berries, orange rind, incense and smoked meats. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fleshy and textural, with old-vine concentration, broad shoulders and a long finish.

Tasting NotesPowerful and concentrated with lots of black cherry aromas. Very phenolic, intense fruit, juicy, pleasingly rustic and energetic, will require 6-7 years in cellar. RKL "Moderate wood and menthol influences frame the intensely earthy and gamy aromas of both red and dark currant. There is excellent energy to the stony medium weight plus flavors that are at once succulent yet powerful where the latter carries over to the serious, firmly structured and mildly warm finish that goes on and on. This somewhat rustic effort is very Corton in basic character and a wine that's going to require patience.

Really quite interesting and layered aromatically already.

Tasting NotesFrom a small 1er Cru site which is almost a monopole of Drouhin Laroze (no other growers own enough here to bottle the wine on its own). Located just in front of Mazis-Chambertin. 20% in new oak. Concentrated dark fruits but more elegant than expected in 2018, with very fine tannins giving a complex,creamy textured effect on the palate (some definite similarities with Mazis). RKL "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Au Closeau 1er Cru has a wonderful bouquet of red currant, cranberry and light sous-bois aromas, all very focused and nicely detailed. The palate is equipped with fine, supple tannins that render this a pliant Gevrey-Chambertin, although there is some new oak on the finish that needs to be subsumed. At 60%, I can see how a little more prudence might have been preferable. Not bad, but I would like to see how this develops and eats up that new wood. 89-91 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting NotesBigger and richer on the nose (than the Vougeot) yet with extraordinary poise and control. Subtle entry but the fruit grows and spreads across the mid-palate as wonderful ripe tannins emerge in support. Dark fruit, mineral and a wonderful texture. Beautiful balancing acidity keeps it so fresh. Very long finish. One of our wines of the vintage. RKL******“The 2018 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru includes 30% whole-bunch fruit, though this is the one grand cru where you cannot detect the stem addition, just the copious dark cherry, raspberry, cedar and undergrowth aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is supple on the entry, the acidity neatly counterbalancing the intensity of the fruit. This Clos-de-Bèze has real grip and an arching structure on the finish, suggesting that it will be a seriously long-lived wine. Excellent. 95-97 points.” Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting NotesSmoky dark fruits and a meaty, savoury character on the nose. Dominique says a good deal of the smokiness is from the barrels (Seguin Moreau, 15% new) so this will no doubt decrease in intensity. Powerful tannins (as in 2017) but with a richer vein of dark fruit behind them. RKL "The 2018 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Rouge has a ripe black cherry and cassis bouquet that is intense but manages to retain just enough freshness.

RKL "The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru, which underwent malolactic earlier than the Charmes, has a more backward bouquet and more red fruit, plus a touch of brown spices. The palate is medium-bodied with dark-chocolate-tinged red fruit, and here the oak is a little dominant toward the sucrous finish.

Tasting NotesAn immediate impression of elegance from the fruit aromas on the nose, with a delicacy to the raspberry and cherry notes. Also something meaty and savoury underlying the fruit, a very classic Côte de Beaune aroma which suggests a village level wine rather than generic bourgogne. Some firm and structured tannins on the palate which are nevertheless very polished. On second tasting after an hour, the fruit has filled out on the palate, suggesting this will continue to flesh out over the next 6-12 months. RKL "Thierry Pillot's Chassagne-sourced Bourgogne Rouge is always one of the bargains in his outstanding range, which is mostly focused on white wines. Made with 40% whole bunches and aged in 15% new wood, it has juicy old-vine concentration, floral, pepper spice red cherry and bramble fruit and good depth of flavour for a generic Pinot Noir.

The palate is extremely accomplished; huge succulent black fruit but vv fresh, vv good acidity, soft but full tannins, this could convert claret drinkers to Burgundy.

Tasting NotesThe first time we tasted his Hautes Côte de Nuits, Dominique commented that growers are increasingly looking at plots at the tops of their slopes. Labelled as 'Hautes Côtes', they often echo the style of the nearby village. The 2019 from cask is a little dominated by oak aromas at present (to be expected) but there is underlying fruit which will assert itself with a couple of years in bottle. The tannins are very fine, finer than in the last two vintages. Silky and concentrated rather than rustic power this year. RKL

Tasting NotesFrom a small plot of vines in Chambolle. Dark brambly fruits on the nose, cherry jam, well-integrated oak and some heady floral (rose petal) aromas too. Notable intensity and depth for a generic bourgogne. On the palate there is a great density and texture, with already silky tannins. Only the moderate length would mark this out as a bourgogne rather than a higher classification if tasted blind; otherwise this is a lot of wine for the money. RKL

Tasting Notes30 to 60 year old vines on limestone soils. This is super-refined and simply floats on the palate, unexpected after the steady progression in intensity of the first three wines. Fresh, great delicacy and complexity, a very elegant 1er Cru Chambolle in the making. RKL

Tasting NotesFrom 60-80 year-old vines. Dark blackcurrant, kirsch and some raspberry aromas, but rather closed on the nose at present. The tannins are extremely fine, a step change from the previous two wines. Also some stony minerality and a long progression on the palate to mark the change up. On a second tasting after some air, the velvety tannins are even more the focal point. RKL

Tasting NotesA beautiful walled vineyard site (in the centre of the photo below, just in front of the woods). All 5 ha are owned by Jeannin-Naltet, making this a 'monopole'. Planted at a very high density, 10,000 vines per hectare. 25-30% new oak. Dark fruit character on the nose, even some cassis notes, with lovely purity and intensity. Complexity and depth apparent. Lovely richness in the mouth with dark, almost Cote de Nuits fruit flavours. Ripe tannins and balanced acidity. After the immediacy of the entry it (surprisingly) shows a good level of elegance and finesse on the finish. (Linear). RKL

Tasting NotesFrom Limestone and marl, just 0.25ha of vines planted in 1959. Rounded and rich, great texture, more indulgent than Les Epenots and with less overt mineral character at this stage, this will be all about silky texture on the palate as the tannins meld. RKL

IB
Tasting NotesFrom vines planted in 1934, 1971, 1985. Les Chgampans is a limestone terroir which imparts a chalky character to the tannins, fresh acidity and an underlying minerality. This is really electric on the palate, with lots of freshness but also great depth to the ripe red fruits. Despite the terroir this is the most open and approachable Champans I have tried, and yet there still seems to be lots of complex tannic structure in the background which will develop over 5-7 years.

Tasting NotesThe village Volnay is from old vines, averaging 50 years of age. These are spread across several parcels totalling under 2 hectares. with an average age of 50 years. Delicate red fruits and floral notes (rose petal) but with more luxurious fruit than we are used to here. This does an amazing tight rope walk between elegance and ripeness, remarkable how it is still so elegant even with all this fruit. RKL

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Beaune Clos des Couchereaux 1er Cru definitely has the most floral of Jadot’s Beaune Premier Crus; rose petal scents infuse the brambly red fruit, mixed with a light marine scent. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a keen bead of acidity. This is very elegant and shows impressive poise toward the finish. A delicious Beaune in the making. 2023-2036. 91-93 points." Neal Martin Vinous.com, Dec 2020

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has a lovely bouquet that is wonderfully delineated and focused, presenting a quite intense mixture of red and black fruit tinged with sous-bois and light black truffle aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with bold tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Smooth in texture, it exhibits dark chocolate and brown spice notes, some new oak just masking the terroir expression and delineation on the finish at the moment. Give this at least 4–5 years in bottle and that will be addressed. Just one double barrel produced (460 liters). 2025 - 2048. 93-95 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020

IB
Tasting NotesDark black fruits, deep and intense on the nose, super supple tannins, lots of tensile energy and really great concentration on the mid-palate. RKL "The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes 1er Cru shakes off a little reduction to reveal more black fruit compared to the Feusselottes, broodier and distinctly marine-influenced. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of licorice on the entry and a long, sweet finish. There is some oak here to be subsumed, but I like the weight and density in the mouth. Give it three or four years in bottle to absorb the wood. 2024 - 2040. 91-93 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020 "Aromas of raspberries, rose petals, sweet soil tones and warm spices introduce the 2019 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes (Domaine Gagey), a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly muscular wine with a concentrated core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, sapid finish. This cuvée is another fixture among the portfolio's highlights. 92-94 points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, matured in 50% new oak, comes across a little tight and awkward on the nose compared to the other three Grand Crus that I tasted from the appellation; it never quite coheres. The palate is better: quite lactic in the mouth, with a smooth texture and espresso and dark chocolate notes that at this early stage mask the terroir expression. Hopefully that will be assimilated with time, but I will remain prudent for now. Two barrels produced. 2023-2033. 89-91 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020

IB
Tasting NotesOpen, supple and with the oak influence playing second fiddle to the black fruits and earth. Very good value, the warmer vintages will really help Jadot's Clos Vougeots to be approachable earlier than the wines of old. RKL "The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is very tight on the nose and needed more encouragement from the glass to reveal sultry black fruit mixed with melted tar and light sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, quite "solid" in structure, and well defined, revealing a touch of blood orange on the finish. This is a finely crafted Clos de Vougeot that should age well over the next 20–25 years. 2023-2045. 93-95 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020

IB
Tasting Notes"The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru was ever so slightly reduced on the nose, but opens with time to reveal quite intense black fruit laced with vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very good weight and a fine bead of acidity. This conveys the most energy of the three Corton Grand Crus from Jadot that I tasted. Velvety texture on the finish. Lovely. Just one used barrel produced. 2023-2040. 92-94 points." Neal Martin Vinous.com, Dec 2020 "The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, unwinding in the glass with notes of cherries, plums, orange rind, dark chocolate, sweet spices and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with broad shoulders and rich, powdery structuring tannins. As usual, this is a fine proposition for the medium- to long-haul. 93-95 points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com

Tasting NotesThe 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru has an exquisite bouquet of crystalline red berry fruit laced with minerals, wonderfully delineated and focused. The palate is smooth and sensual on the entry, and very cohesive, with a perfect line of acidity. Pure and ravishing, armed with a satin-textured finish, this is going to be very difficult to resist once in bottle. Superb. 93-95 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

£715 per case of 6
IB
Tasting NotesThis is quite closed on the nose, especially the fruit, but there is an impressive whiff of gunsmoke, herbal aromas, and a gamey character suggesting all sorts of complexity. The overall impression is of super-ripe red and black fruits with plenty of freshness, but the potential is there for this to become a Gevrey of real stature in five to seven years. RKL "The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru is surprisingly reticent at first, offering quite strong earthy aromas and gradually opening with sage, thyme and mint. I feel that compared to the other Clos Saint-Jacques, the aromatics never quite click into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with the best backbone of the four Gevrey Premier Crus tasted from Jadot. Spicy black pepper and clove notes furnish the middle and the finish, which feels sustained and persistent, yet I wonder whether it will have the unadulterated charm of the Les Cazetiers when in bottle. We will find out soon. 2024 - 2042. 92-94 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020

Tasting NotesSmoky, deep and open on the nose, red and blue fruits, raspberry, kirsch, herbal and very intense. A superb start. On the palate, soft tannins very fruit-forward, perhaps without quite the length of earlier vintages, but the tannins will likely develop. A tad less elegant on the finish than in other years but that is easy to forgive when there is so much generosity! RKL "The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from vines up to 85 years old. It has a sensual bouquet of brambly red fruit, undergrowth and light truffle aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, moderate acidity and decent length. What is missing is a little tension and precision on the finish compared to other vintages. 2023-2030. 86-88 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Dec 2020

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Village has a transparent bouquet with touches of Earl Grey tea interwoven into the lifted red berry scents. There is fine mineralité and that is transposed onto the palate that is very well balanced. Classic in style with a persistent, grainy textured finish and a peppery aftertaste, dare I say, but say I do, this is one of the best damn Chambolle-Musigny Village wines that you will come across in 2019. 90-92 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a straightforward, focused bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary and tea leaf aromas, though it just lacks the assertiveness and intensity you seek from a Grand Cru. The palate is better with a light spiced opening, good weight and cohesion with black pepper and sea salt infused red fruit. Quite Mazoyères in terms of structure towards the finish, this will benefit from 4-6 years in bottle. 93-95 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Village does not quite have the expressiveness of the Morey Village on the nose and demands more coaxing, a little broody and sultry at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit with touches of sous-bois and white pepper. Lovely balance here and the precision on the finish compensates for the bashful aromatics. It will need 24 months once in bottle and fingers crossed the nose will step up a gear. 88-90 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air 1er Cru is attractive and fresh on the nose, melted tar and pencil box scents percolating through the red and black fruit, a hint of orange rind with time.

Taupenot referred to this as his "baby Bèze" - a perfectly apt description. 92-94 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com

Tasting Notes"The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru is stubborn and austere on the nose at the moment, red berry fruit and damp loam aromas/woodland scents gradually unfurling, hints of cepes. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit mixed with white pepper and sage. Classic in style, nicely focused, this builds in the mouth and exerts good grip on the finish with impressive length on the aftertaste. Great potential but will benefit from cellaring. 92-94 points."
