2018 Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules
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
92-94/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is the most reserved of these Beaune premiers crus, unwinding in the glass with notes of ripe cherries, wild berries, dark chocolate, dried flowers and a deft touch of spicy new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with succulent acids, powdery tannins and a long, sapid finish. This is very promising."
90-93/100 and Sweet Spot Outstanding" in Burghound, Allen Meadows
"This too is quite generously wooded with ample amounts of menthol suffusing the mostly dark berry fruit aromas. The attractively punchy and well-detailed medium weight flavors are notably more refined while offering a subtle minerality on the firmly structured finish. Patience suggested." Drink 2030+
17+/20 JancisRobinson.com, Tom Parker MW
"Vibrant red cherry and wild strawberries on the nose with a hint of savoury spice. Glossy entry but there is plenty of structure behind the fruit. Layered and complex, the bite and structure builds to a long, refined finish. (TP)." Drink 2022 - 2035
