2018 Jadot Puligny Montrachet Clos de la Garenne

94 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A rich and generous white from Burgundy's most famous Chardonnay zone. High on the south-east facing hill near the legendary Grand Crus of Puligny-Montrachet, the La Garenne Premier Cru enjoys plenty of sunlight but also the elevation to ensure slow, defined ripeness. Chalk soils meanwhile assist with excellent drainage and classic mineral themes on the nose and palate. La Garenne offers great drinking in the immediate as well as the medium term.
$150.00 in mixed 6+ or $170.00 per bottle



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

91-94/100 Vinous, Neal Martin

"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru has an impressive bouquet of green apples, fresh pear and touches of petrichor, developing light walnut aromas so that it becomes almost Meursault-like. The palate is taut and fresh with a menthol undercurrent, and quite concentrated, displaying good definition and a palpable sense of energy toward the finish. This is excellent." Drink 2022 - 2040

90-93/100 and rated Outstanding, Burghound, Allen Meadows

"The cool, pure and airy aromas of apple, pear, floral and mineral reduction precede the delicious and tension-filled medium weight flavors that brim with minerality while delivering excellent punch on the youthfully austere and sneaky long finale. This will need to add depth to achieve the upper end of my projected range, but the development potential appears to be present." Drink 2028+

91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley

"Offering up aromas of pear, pastry cream and white flowers, the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Garenne (Duc de Magenta) is medium to full-bodied, ample and expressive, with a lively but open-knit profile, concluding with a chalky finish."
