2018 Jadot Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre
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
94/100 Wine Enthusiast, Anne Krebiehl MW
"The lift and freshness of tart red cherry on this wine's nose has a rare hint of raspberry. The palate comes in with energetic, glossy flow, still slightly impeded by fine and youthful tannins on the concentrated, toned body. But freshness creates the drive and propels that depth of flavor."
90-92/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2018 Volnay Clos de la Barre 1er Cru has a precise, focused bouquet of well-defined black and red fruit mixed with cedar and light minty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite rounded and smooth in texture. Good depth toward the finish, but I was expecting a little more complexity and mineralité." Drink 2022 - 2038
90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"Another success is the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre Monopole (Maison Louis Jadot), offering up aromas of cassis, red plums, baking chocolate and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good concentration, lively acids and chalky tannins."
