Louis Jadot

I tasted 103 wines at Jadot and selected just 18. Here is my choice of la crème de la crème. Jadot make comparatively big (yet balanced and satisfying) wines which appeal to those who like this style of Burgundy. The reds have a long vinification in vat, which increases tannin, and the whites often have blocked malolactic fermentations, as in 2017 where 80% was suppressed, which increases the acidity. However, both are given 18 months in barrel to soften and develop. This was once the typical length of maturation but is now increasingly rare. Diam corks are used for all of the white wines here.

Louis Jadot Bourgogne Le Chapitre (Gagey) 2017

A wine from Chenôve, near Marsannay, with a remarkable soil of decomposed limestone and which deserves at least village or even premier cru status. For now it languishes as a ‘Bourgogne’ – but only in status, not in quality! Round and ripe with the sweeter tannins of the Côte de Nuits, this offers excellent value for money. Drink from 2022 to 2028. 13.5%

BU70871 Bottles6 Price£82.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Côte de Nuits Villages Le Vaucrain (Jadot) 2017

Well placed, close to Nuits premier cru La Maréchale, this vineyard makes much better wine than its ‘villages’ provenance suggests, and at a very attractive price. Drink from 2024 to 2030. 13.5%

BU70881 Bottles6 Price£105.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Marsannay Longerois (Jadot) 2017

Marsannay is perhaps the best-value village for red Burgundy, and this ripe and full 2017 with sweet tannins is a smart wine to buy. Drink from 2024 to 2030. 13.5%

BU70891 Bottles6 Price£105.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Marsannay Clos du Roy (Jadot) 2017

The 2017 Clos du Roy is, as usual, slightly firmer and more structured in style than than the same producer's ripe and full Longeroies. Both are lovely – it’s a personal choice of which you prefer! Drink from 2024 to 2030. 13.5%

BU70901 Bottles6 Price£105.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Pernand-Vergelesses Rouge Premier Cru Clos de la Croix de Pierre (Héritiers) 2017

A standout wine in the Jadot range, this comes from the steep En Caradeux vineyard. Ripe yet fresh-tasting and a little fleshier than most Pernands. Drink from 2024 to 2030. 13%

BU70921 Bottles6 Price£120.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc Clos de la Croix de Pierre (Jadot) 2017

A blend that includes premier cru as well as village fruit, meaning that this is much better than its ‘village’ label suggests. The 2017 is ripe and peachy and yet the finish is lovely and fresh. Drink from 2021 to 2024. 13%

BU71001 Bottles6 Price£127.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Savigny-lès-Beaune Premier Cru Les Guettes 2017

Lovely mid-weight wine from a very steep slope, which intercepts more sunlight ensuring good levels of ripeness every year. The 2017 has an attractive balance of intense red-fruit aromas, ripe fruit and silky tannins. Drink from 2024 to 2030. 13%

BU70911 Bottles6 Price£132.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Beaune Premier Cru Grèves (Héritiers) 2017

I tasted seven Beaune premiers crus at Jadot and chose just two: this one is a pretty, fine-boned wine with sweet tannins and a seductive red-fruited palate. Drink from 2024 to 2032. 13%

BU70931 Bottles6 Price£175.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Couchereaux (Héritiers) 2017

I tasted seven Beaune premiers crus at Jadot and chose just two: this one is from Clos des Couchereaux, which occupies a warm southerly exposition in a high cool site. This makes for a wine that balances ripeness and freshness in a highly successful way and the 2017 has nice ripe tannins yet an attractive fresh finish too. Drink from 2024 to 2032. 13%

BU70941 Bottles6 Price£175.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Cazétiers 2017

This has bright, crystalline pinot fruit and a sleek and sensual palate. Gevreys from the cool Combe de Lavaux such as Cazétiers have intense and complex aromas and an attractive sense of energy and finesse. Drink from 2027 to 2032. 13.5%

BU70971 Bottles3 Price£200.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Volnay Premier Cru Clos de la Barre 2017

Poor weather-beaten Volnay is getting its mojo back! After a series of vintages with serious frost and hail, the vines are recovering and are able to properly ripen. As a result, there is now a sweetness to the fruit and silkiness to the tannins. A lovely wine. Drink from 2024 to 2032. 13%

BU70951 Bottles6 Price£255.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Clos de la Garenne (Duc de Magenta) 2017

This muscular Puligny comes from old, low-yielding vines between 60-100 years of age situated just above Clos de la Mouchère and adjacent to Folatières. The 2017 has a long and fresh finish. Drink from 2022 to 2026. 13.5%

BU71021 Bottles6 Price£337.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Folatières (Héritieres) 2017

With intense floral aromas, a lightly honeyed palate and a fresh finish, this comes from vines planted in 1973 in the En La Richarde part of Folatières high on the hillside towards Chevalier Montrachet. Drink from 2022 to 2026. 13.5%

BU71031 Bottles6 Price£337.00 Type

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Clos Saint Jacques (Jadot) 2017

Perfectly situated in this cool valley, Clos Saint Jacques is the king of this Combe, and a candidate for elevation to grand cru. It has an innate class which is not to do with power, but instead with the harmony and proportion of all its elements that sets it apart. It is easy to recognise but difficult to describe. Drink from 2027 to 2032. 13.5%

BU70991 Bottles3 Price£345.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Héritiers) 2017

Powerful and ripe wine with a broad, firm and fleshy palate from the south-facing Pougets vineyard near Aloxe-Corton. Drink from 2025 to 2034. 13.5%

BU71011 Bottles3 Price£375.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Fuées (Jadot) 2017

Beautifully situated between Las Cras and grand cru Bonnes Mares, high on the slope, with shallow soil just covering the limestone rock, this vineyard produces tense, vibrant aromatic wines. The 2017 is pretty and perfumed. Drink from 2027 to 2032. 13.5%

BU70961 Bottles6 Price£400.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru (Jadot) 2017

Opulent and voluptuous wine of true grand cru class. This is made from vines planted in 1926 which produce beautifully ripe, tiny berries. This high proportion of skin to pulp results in abundant colour and sweet tannins. Drink from 2027 to 2032. 13.5%

BU70981 Bottles3 Price£445.00 Type

Louis Jadot, Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Grand Cru (Héritiers) 2017

This is one of the white wines of the vintage. Opposite in style to Jadot's powerful and ripe Corton-Charlemagne, this has a fine linear palate with crystalline fruit. From the top of the slope where there is outcropping of the rock, this has an exquisitely dry, pure and mineral aspect and needs time to open out. Drink from 2026 to 2036. 13.5%
