Tasting Notes"The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, displaying a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk and a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, tensile and tight-knit, with chewy structuring dry extract, tangy acids and a long, grippy finish. This is built for the cellar and will be well worth seeking out. 93-95 points." William Kelley, WA

IB
Tasting Notes"The 2018 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru comes from a single plot of around half a hectare in the lieu-dit of La Pièce Sous La Bois. It conveys superb terroir expression, almost Puligny-like in its evocation of wet, cold limestone, wet pavement after a sudden shower and light lemon peel elements. The palate is taut and crisp on the entry, a fine bead of acidity slicing through the intense citrus and orange peel notes, which segue into a quite a spicy ginger-tinged finish. I just want more on the aftertaste, which disappears quicker than I would like. 91-93 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"Once again, and all the more remarkably so for the vintage, Jobard coaxes the restrained cool, pure and airy aromas to emanate from the wonderfully elegant floral, citrus and essence of white-fleshed fruit. The gorgeously textured medium-bodied flavors are powerful yet focused with a lovely minerality and just the right blend of bitter citrus zest character that renders the finish super-refreshing. Good stuff that will need to develop more depth but nonetheless, this is already very fine. Sweet spot Outstanding. 91-93 points" Allen Meadows' Burghound------Old vines from the early 1950s and the young vines from 2009. Good flowering but the old vines always produce tiny grapes. Coming to this from the St-Aubin 1ers crus and another dimension is clearly evident. This is a complex supple wine with a nuanced range of flavours, mostly in white fruit, with perfectly balanced oak and fine length. Tasted: December 2019. 92-94 points" Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com

The palate is vibrant and fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity. Harmonious from start to finish, it delivers an appealing spiciness that leaves the tongue tingling, thanks to a dab of ginger on the aftertaste. Very fine. 2023-2048. 93-95 points."

Tasting Notes"The 2018 Meursault Charmes ler Cru, Jadot's second vintage from this vineyard, offers an intense bouquet of jasmine, dried honey and grilled walnut scents that seem well defined, if not quite as precise as some of the vineyard's other exponents. The palate is fresh and well defined on the entry, with a slightly honeyed texture, a faint tang of marmalade and quince and a lightly spiced, quite persistent finish that feels satisfying, even if not as tensile as the Meursault•Blagny by direct comparison. Fine. 89-91 points." Neal Martin, Nov '19

Tasting NotesThis gives a sense of great density on the nose but then also has impressive tension on the palate. The fruit character is of white stone fruits with lots of delicate floral complexity, but the overall effect is of a very ripe and rich style. RKL "The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Abbaye de Morgeot 1er Cru has a lovely bouquet of orange blossom, freshly sliced pear and light nectarine aromas, plus a hint of praline in the background. The palate is well balanced with a honeyed opening, quite rich in style, and yet there is wonderful tension. Appealing tropical notes of passion fruit and guava on the finish. This will be irresistible once bottled. 2022 - 2033. 91-93 points." Neal Martin Vinous.com, Dec 2020

Tasting Notes"Antoine has decided to blend together all his Meursault lieux dits in a change from previous practice. The 2020 comprises 40% En la Barre 20% Tillets and the result comes from his previous Meursault blend and the recently purchased Meix Tavaux. Clear pure lemon and lime, with a touch of reduction. Definite austerity here but with fruit volume behind. In fact, there is a wonderful concentration of pure lime infused fruit, with a steely backbone. Very fine long aftertaste. Love it! Very long indeed. Tasted: 11/1/2021. (5 star wine) 91-94 points" Jasper Morris, insideburgundy.com

Tasting NotesThe 1.15-hectare Les Perrières vineyard is situated to the south of the amphitheatre, on mid-slope just beneath the parcel of Le Clos. Exposed south-south-east, the slope here is steeper than it is on the Clos. The vineyard was planted in 1972-1974. The soil, which is derived from alluvial deposits, consists of a mix of deep silt and stony clay. The subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marls, while the top layers are littered with stones on the surface. Fermentation and elevage are handled as for the Clos des Prouges. The 2020 vintage will be bottled in February 2022.------"Here too the wood treatment is more prominent still with notes of vanilla and toast fighting a bit with the ripe aromas of poached pear and anise. There is impressive size, weight and power to the bigger and equally generously proportioned flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before culminating in an elegant but powerful finish. Patience advised here too. 2027+. 91-93 points." Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 84------"This wine is from east-facing vines behind Mme. Ferret’s house, and is thus called by the domaine ‘Clos de Jeanne’ although it is in premier cru Les Perrières. It delivers a substantial wine; here the cask ferment (20% new) is more apparent, yet it holds this will and shows approachably toasty ripe apple aromas. There is abundant extract here but the wine remains impressively fresh and lingers seductively on the finish. 92 points." Charles Curtis MW, Decanter------“The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Perrières 1er Cru has a very focused, almost steely bouquet, beautifully defined with neatly integrated oak. White flowers emerge with time in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and wonderful salinity with a vibrant and energetic finish. I cannot wait to taste the finished wine. 91-93 points.” Neal Martin, Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Nov 21

Tasting Notes"The Michelot rows run top to bottom, which makes quite a difference. But the wider plot is at the top where the slope is steeper.

Tasting Notes"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. 91-93 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"Fullish, yellowish colour, while the bouquet shows a fair amount of oak. The full weight of Morgeot is lurking. It all works though. If you want a white Burgundy with significant volume of flesh without forcing the ripeness too far, this will do the job. Just the right balance here. Tasted: November 2021 91-94 points" Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com------"One of the standouts of the range is the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot (Domaine Louis Jadot), a medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless wine evocative of pear, orange oil and pastry cream. Bright and chalky, it's beautifully balanced and built to age. 92-94 points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com

Tasting Notes"The swan song for this cuvée is the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle (Duc de Magenta), a muscular, concentrated wine that exhibits aromas of orange oil, peach, buttery pastry and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with a fleshy core of ripe fruit and bright balancing acids, it offers a classic expression of Morgeot in all its exuberance. 91-93 points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com------"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. 91-93 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"The last vintage of this wine chez Jadot as the vineyard has been sold. Medium yellow in colour. There is a little less overt power and perhaps a touch more terroir in this wine. Then the full weight kicks in, nicely married with its wood, and a sense of managed opulence behind infiltrated by good acidity.

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. 93-95 points" Neal Martin, Vinous.com------"The 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is broad and muscular, unfurling in the glass with aromas of lime cordial, orange zest, white flowers and pastry cream. Full-bodied, rich and textural, it's a thick, fleshy wine with terrific concentration and tangy balancing acids. 93-95+ points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com------"Pale lemon yellow. The bouquet is quite quiet though with promise. This is classic on the palate, rippling stones dusted lightly in lemon. The oak in support is well judged.

Tasting NotesVines planted in 1950-51. 'Morgeot' is a very large premier cru and contains several other smaller premiers crus, of which 'Les Petits Clos' is one. Morgeot wines are often blended from parcels across the vineyard, but this is from a single plot of 2 hectares. Facing south-east, the soils here have lots of white clay and limestone. White fruits on the nose, some peach, smoky citrus, more stone fruits and ginger on the palate. Excellent length. As per the previous vintage, there is something instantly likeable about this wine, all of its complex layers are immediately accessible. RKL

Tasting NotesFrom younger vines in the lower, northern part of Santenay and is mostly a young vine cuvée. The vineyard is planted with 3% of a chardonnay clone which gives a rich style with almost Muscat-like aromas. The finished style is similar to Chassagne-Montrachet with lots of richness and texture, presumably influenced by the use of lees stirring and ageing in 30% new wood. Balanced citrus and yuzu fruit on the nose, lovely fresh acidity balancing the concentration, some white flowers, tangerines on the palate. Quite different to the tropical notes and glyecrine-texture from some recent vintages of Gravieres. Good energy. RKL

Tasting Notes"Clear pale colour. The nose is the cleanest and the most classic, with more fruit evident from the start. One younger plot lower down was nearly a full crop. This has a beginning, a middle and an end, not the plumpest Charmes of your life, but much the style of wine which Nicolas wants to make and is capable of.

There is excellent volume to the succulent and enveloping medium weight flavors that possess solid mid-palate concentration before terminating in a clean and mouthcoating finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears.

Tasting Notes"Aromas of lime zest, freshly baked bread, pear, white flowers and wet stones preface the 2021 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), a full-bodied, ample and satiny wine that's chalky and structured, with notable concentration, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. It's a very strong performance that transcends any of the vintage's limitations. 93-95+ points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com------"(from Les Pougets in Aloxe-Corton). Cooler and airier aromas include those of mostly green apple, mineral reduction, crushed fennel and white flowers. There is almost painful intensity to the beautifully textured if slightly less concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude a pungent stoniness on the tautly muscular, moderately austere and bone-dry finale that goes on and on. It’s rare that the Jadot CC appears more interesting than the Demoiselles but at this very early juncture, it seems to have a slight edge.

There is excellent delineation and vibrancy to the refined and understated middleweight flavors that are almost aggressively mineral-driven, all wrapped in a moderately austere, compact and serious finale.

Tasting NotesEach time we taste this it evokes comparisons with Meursault. From younger vines in the northern part of Santenay, at a lower elevation, hence riper in style than Sous La Roche. This is mostly a young vine cuvée but from complex soils. Soft and plush on the palate, balanced by salinity, immediately noticeable, and lots of citrus fruit. More layered and complex, with a note of iodine on the finish. The salty-iodine character note and fresh acidity are a counterpoint to the ripeness. RKL

Tasting NotesThe 'Sous La Roche' lieu-dit is a small vineyard, less than half a hectare, quite high up on the slopes above the village of Santenay. The grapes are passed through a gentle pneumatic press at low pressure soon after harvesting. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at very low temperatures, in barrel, with particular emphasis on lees management, which contributes roundness and complexity of aroma. The wine spends 12 to 15 months in cask, 20-25% new, with regular bâtonnage until malolactic starts. Delightful freshness and citrus fruit on the nose, quite intense, really nice energy, glycerine texture, full-on attack, then gradually diminishes the on mid-palate, reasserting itself on the finish. Very good balancing acidity keeping the whole impression fresh, with a bit of salinity on the finish. RKL

Tasting NotesSituated right in the centre of the village of Fuissé, this Clos is just over two "hectares" in size and is planted on a shallow slope that faces east. Although a small parcel of vines was planted in 2003, most of the vineyard dates back to 1956, and is therefore more than 60 years old, making it one of the oldest owned by the domaine. The soil is derived from limestone-rich marls deposited during the upper Bathonian. The 2022 Prouges is ripe with excellent concentration and richness on the nose; but on the palate, very welcome fresh acidity balancing the broad and richly layered fruit. RKL------"Slightly riper yet still fresh aromas offer up notes of exotic tea, spice, pear liqueur and slightly more prominent wood. As is usually the case, there is better volume to the more energetic medium weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the balanced, long and delicious finale. This could use better depth but the potential to develop it certainly appears to be present. 2028+. 90-93 points." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Tasting NotesFrom various parcels of vines around Meursault. Fermented and aged for 1 year in 500l oak barrels, with no new oak. Intense and rich citrus fruit on the nose, smoky, struck-match reductive aromas. The palate is concentrated with a lovely texture, not from glycerin (which often adds a textural quality), but from something more complex. It has some of the richness associated with Meursault wines, but also fresh and with lots of energy. Outstanding Bourgogne Chardonnay, if only there were more of it. RKL------"Only in 500 litre wood. Pale lemon colour. An interesting suggestion of linseed as well as the more expected white fruit. This is something ephemeral though as there is no further sign on the palate. Good tension, white apple flesh and a little citrus. Medium plus weight for the appellation and good length. Drink from 2024-2026. 86-88 points." Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Tasting NotesThe Clos St Felix is a walled vineyard directly adjoining the winery. Nicolas' grandfather used to tell the story of how he knew this was a warmer site than the surrounding vineyards. As a young man during the occupation, he would come home from visiting his girlfriend on cold winter nights after curfew. Hopping over the wall into the Clos St Felix, he would immediately notice the warmer temperatures! The 2022 has lots of flint and iodine on the nose and the same roundness and texture on the palate, but it is more focused and linear too, with very fine acidity. More intense on the finish, with excellent length. RKL------"Pale in colour, perhaps a lemon tint. Reductive on the nose which is hiding the fruit. I can pick up greater intensity compared to Sous la Velle, but the reduction hides it a little. Oyster shells at the finish, unexpectedly. Drink from 2027-2033. 89-92 points."

At first sniff the Genevrières is more generous than the Charmes, or at least slightly riper. Herbs and honeysuckle, but with the stones in the background. Sort of like Vaillons in Chablis, this also gives a drier finish on lemon scented stones. An interesting contrast to the Charmes. Lovely aftertaste. My first sniff was misleading.

Tasting NotesTrue to its name, Les Charmes is charming, with a softness to the texture, delicate aromas of white flowers and lovely salinity. The persistence on the palate marks this out as a step up from the preceding wines, with beautiful crushed-rock minerality on the finish. RKL------"Pale colour with a most promising nose, the ample side of Charmes but held in balance, showing the precision of this excellent white wine vintage. This starts well then accelerates with class across the whole of the palate. Not too fleshy, this comes across as quite a refined Meursault Charmes. Drink from 2029-2037. 92-94 points."

IB
Tasting NotesThe Grands Charrons vines are at the same elevation as the premier cru vineyards and this would probably be rated at that level, but for the cool winds that come from the valley of Auxey-Duresses, lowering the temperature a fraction. Pronounced iodine and saline notes, soft and floral on the palate, with a distinctive roundness. This is a great year for terroir expression, the subtle differences between sites is so clear. RKL "Mid lemon yellow. The bouquet is more generous in fruit with a light floral note as well. Immediately explosive fruit but well poised on the palate, a light touch of mineral bitterness to finish, and medium plus length., even slightly saline at the finish. Plenty to build on here. Drink from 2027-2034. 90-92 points." Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Tasting NotesLes Perrières is a contender with Genevrières for the top spot among Michelot's premiers crus, from a more limestone-dominated terroir. It usually takes the longest to come round for drinking but repays this with ageless freshness and minerality. Not tasted on this visit. RKL------"Pale lemon yellow. The bouquet is the weightiest of the 1ers crus but what about finesse? At first the classier qualities are hidden behind or beneath the muscle, but there is plenty more to develop underneath, refreshing acidity backs up the energetic fresh pear fruit. More backward than the Genevrières, possibly not quite as detailed at this stage, but with a fine long finish and promise for the future. Drink from 2030-2038. 93-95 points."

Tasting NotesFrom ten parcels around the village. The Mestre's aim with this wine is to blend the various components to make a wine that is as representative of the village as possible. Few domaines have such an array of terroirs at their disposal, so this wine is one of the best exemplars of the village. 80% barrel fermented and aged, half in barrique and half in 500l casks. The remaining 20% is made in ceramic 'eggs' and glass globes. Nicolas is continually experimenting with these vessels to give texture to the wines, whilst allowing them to express their terrroir. Intense flint and struck match aromas, some saline notes on the palate, balancing a soft, rounded texture. Lovely savoury hazelnut character. RKL------"Pale colour with a touch of sulphur on the nose, certainly more tension. Starts well and then builds, with predominantly fresh apple notes, the fruit covering the wood and becoming more complex than expected further back on the palate. Drink from 2026-2031. 89-92 points."

Tasting NotesPrevious solar vintages of this wine have had an almost tropical character to the fruit.

Tasting NotesLes Forêts is on the Montmains slopes and forms a natural amphitheatre, making it warmer than Montmains. The vineyard was replanted in 2008 by Romain's father and has been organic since day 1. This was aged in 90% concrete eggs and 10% oak. Saline and steely on the palate with lots of energy, it is nevertheless rounder than the Montmains, with more texture. RKL------"Pale lemon and lime. Here the reduction is more noticeable, but note that this wine has not yet been racked. There is noticeably more density here than the Montmains, a little lime rinse to the concentrated fruit, and fine length. Adequate tension this year. Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: July 2023. 90-93 points." Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

IB
Tasting NotesThe 10 ha Vaillons 1er cru is the largest in the appellation. Collet's vines here have been organic since 2008. Fermented 90% in stainless steel, then aged one third in large old wooden foudre, one third in used oak barrels and one third in tank. Romain pointed out that with the size of Vaillons, maturity can vary, hence he vinifies different plots individually. The 2022 Vaillons has it all..intensity, richness, minerality and saline notes, with a soft floral mid-palate and a hint of smoke. Very long. Romain says he prefers his 1er cru at around 4-5 years, so drink this from 2026, if you can wait. RKL------"Just filtered. Pale in colour and the nose has been slightly stripped. Entirely white fruit, with concentration, perhaps a hint of lemon, the stones and the flesh, but a bit muted. The persistence is there, so this may just be unwilling to declare itself today. Drink from 2027-2032. Tasted: July 2023 89-92 points" Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com

Tasting NotesHere Romain has two plots and says one gives minerality, the other, richness. 100% fermented in oak barrels, 5% of it new. Closed on the nose but with a harmonious, intense impression. Builds slowly on the mid-palate, expanding to show impressive breadth. Lime fruit, minerality and salinity on the very long finish. RKL------"Pale lemon yellow. This is quite backward but with greater energy at the back of the palate. Some greener floral notes along with fresh yellow fruit. Good tension, still a baby, but showing promise. Drink from 2027-2034. Tasted: July 2023 91-93 points" Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com

Tasting NotesFrom five parcels on Montmains, 100% fermented and aged in stainless steel. Romain commented that there was lots of millerandage (also known as 'hen and chickens') in 2022; with the grapes in each bunch of varying sizes. Careful handpicking and selection turned this into a virtue, bring varying degrees of ripeness into the cuvée. The Montmains has a beautiful nose of ozone and seaside minerality, as well as crushed oyster shell. Broad on the palate, this is nevertheless ultra-classic in style. RKL------"In bottle (just a small lot – most to follow later). A stainless steel cuvée. Pale in colour, the bouquet is quite restrained. Just a few stones coming out. The palate is much cooler and the reductive element clearly comes through. Excellent persistence. Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: July 2023. 92 points." Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

£260 per case of 6
IB
Tasting NotesValmur is high up on the slopes and despite the excellent ripeness, the altitude gives a cool expression to the fruit, even in warmer years. The terroir consists of a complex mixture of Portlandian scree and Kimmeridgian limestone. Fermented and aged in 100% oak barrels, from 1-3 years old. This has very rich fruit aromas, including grapefruit and even guava, but still has a focused line of acidity. Excellent intensity on nose and palate, impossible to mistake this for anything other than a grand cru. This needs 8-10 years to show its full potential (though it will be delicious after around 4!). RKL------"Still in barrel, will rack before the harvest. Pale green tint in the colour, while the wood shows on the nose for the moment. As much a suggestion of coconut as vanilla. There is a greener note to the fruit which enhances the Chablisian style, then a wealth of pure white fruit before the wood returns to bolster the finish. Plenty of energy here without too overt an opulence. Drink from 2028-2036. Tasted: July 2023. 92-94 points" Jasper Morris MW, insideburgundy.com

Tasting NotesFrom just under two hectares of vines in Auxey, averaging 30 years of age, on clay-limestone. The Auxey goes through the same winemaking process as the Bourgogne Côte d'Or, so the additional weight and concentration here is all down to terroir. Saline, mineral and full of energy, with a sweet-sour chracter to the fruit. Auxey is adjacent to Meursault and there is some of that villages richness here. Alexandra commented that Auxey is usually the last area they harvest (being a slightly cooler area) and this has probably helped the 2022 reach this full, intense expression. Beautiful salinity on the long finish. RKL

Tasting NotesFrom two plots of vines averaging twenty years of age, totalling around two hectares. The terroir is clay-limestone. The wine is fermented in barriques, followed by ageing for 11 months in oak, 10% of it new. Intense citrus fruit on the nose, with excellent elevated acidity on the palate to balance more very ripe citrus on the palate, which has a rounded shape and a mealy texture. Baby Puligny-Montrachet! RKL------"Light, bright lemony aroma with a creamy top note and a light salty impression. Quite a lot going on for a Bourgogne Côte d'Or. Lots of interest, well-balanced between crisp lemon freshness and creamy texture. Drink 2024 – 2027. 16 points" jancisrobinson.com (JH).

Mineral and saline on the palate, with a savoury character and excellent structure. RKL------"Fragrant and open, with herbal citrus aromas. Creamy, full of pure fruit and finishing with a light, dry grip that adds finesse. Fruit depth and texture make a deliciously complete wine. Drink 2026 – 2030. 16.5 points" jancisrobinson.com (JH)

RKL------"Riper and more intense than Les Enseignères. Lemon and a touch of apricot. Rich and creamy on the palate, too; the fruit just balanced by the chalky texture and fresh acidity.

Benoit pointed out that, following the small harvest in 2021, he needed to buy in more new oak barrels than usual for the larger 2022 vintage. The Merucrey Village has benefited from this, with the oak giving impressive structure. RKL------"Smells riper and creamier than the Aligoté.
