2018 Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons

92 Points Allen Meadows, Burghound
In stock
An exceptional quality, ageworthy Red Burgundy from a Premier Cru vineyard. Les Theurons (other producers call it Teurons, with no "h") is one of the finest spots in Beaune, and a strong candidate for Grand Cru promotion. Its dry, limey gravels produce a wine with delicate flavours and defined aromatics of red fruits, spice and earth, built upon ageworthy acidity and deep tannic structure. Bright-fruited but bony in its youth, this beautiful wine from an undervalued vineyard offers a great cellaring potential for the price.

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

90-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"Moderately strong aromas of menthol and wood fight somewhat with the essence of red currant, plum and spice wisps. There is both good volume and solid mid-palate density to the delicious flavors that possess good muscle and focused power on the serious, rustic and borderline chewy finish where a hint of warmth appears. This robust effort is clearly built-to-age and a wine that is going to need at least some bottle age first." Drink 2030+

90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley

"Generous and enveloping, the 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) bursts with aromas of ripe red berries and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, round and succulent palate. This is a hearty, charming Beaune that will offer a broad drinking window."
