2020 Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes

93 Points Parker's Wine Advocate
In stock
A wonderfully affordable Premier Cru Chardonnay, the 'Bressandes' is considered one of Beaune's best vineyards. It sits above the other 1er Crus on a steep rocky slope of thin limestone soils with bedrock close beneath. Here the fruit is rich and expressive yet full of mineral character with the depth to benefit from an 18 month spell in oak. This rounded and complete wine will reward cellaring but is delicious now. A perfect top Burgundy for beginners -- or something to crack while you wait for your Montrachets to age -- this is definitely one to try.
$95.00 in mixed 6+ or $105.00 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

93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley

"The 2020 Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes Blanc (Domaine Gagey), from a parcel at the top of the slope is another notable success this year. Mingling aromas of citrus zest and clear honey with hints of hazelnuts and fresh pastry, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless, with a chiseled profile and a long, mineral finish."

88-91/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"This is similar to the villages, though here there is a notable addition of a petrol component. There is both better richness and volume to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract while delivering slightly better depth and persistence on the citrusy finish that also has a slightly tannic edginess to it."
