White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2010 Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles 2 Case 3 150cl £1,390
  • Tasting note: A gorgeously elegant if highly restrained nose of citrus, acacia blossom and pungent wet stone aromas trimmed in just enough wood to notice is stunning. Not surprisingly, the medium-bodied flavors are much finer than those of the Bâtard or Corton-Charlemagne though not quite as big or powerful. The strikingly intense, lingering and impeccably well-balanced finish radiates minerality and the overall sense of harmony is flat out superb. A knockout, even by the incredible standards of this wine.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2012 Bienvenues Batard Montrachet 3 Bottle 300cl £695
  • Tasting note: This is also quite elegant with its equally spicy nose of honeysuckle, yellow and white orchard fruit and citrus elements. There is a lovely vibrancy to the concentrated and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess good power on the markedly dry and somewhat compact edgy finish. As with the Combettes my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the finish will flesh out and the dryness will dissipate with time.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2015 Batard Montrachet 2 Case 6 75cl £1,300
  • Tasting note: Notes of honey, petrol, white orchard fruit and various floral scents serve as an elegant introduction to the caressing and wonderfully seductive big-bodied flavors that display both excellent volume and power on the muscular, dense and superbly persistent finale. This is not an especially refined vintage for this wine but should mature into a real beauty if given a chance.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2015 Chevalier Montrachet les Demoiselles 1 Case 3 150cl £1,750
  • Tasting note: Reduction presently flattens the underlying fruit. On the plus side there is excellent size, weight and punch to the generously proportioned, powerful and tautly muscular flavors that reflect both plenty of minerality and dry extract before concluding in an almost thick yet balanced finale that delivers first-rate length. 2015 is not a particularly elegant vintage for this wine but once again, there is no lack of character.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2016 Batard Montrachet 2 Case 6 75cl £1,275
  • Strong reduction masks the fruit at present. On the plus side there is lovely verve and freshness to the rich and full-bodied yet, curiously, even finer flavors that are very tightly wound thanks to the firm core of citrus-tinged acidity shaping the serious, classy and hugely impressively persistent finish. This too is definitely going to require extended cellaring before it reaches its peak. Drink 2028+

    Score: 91/94 Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (71), June 2018

    Cask sample. Oak more evident here than on the Corton-Charlemagne. More spice and cedar on the nose and palate. Has a definite sour/citrus creamy freshness but seems less subtle than the Corton. Just a touch sour on the aftertaste; big and long. Drink between 2024-2030.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2016 Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles 1 Case 3 75cl £775
  • The 2016 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Demoiselles was reduced from the usual nine or ten barrels to just two this year because of frost damage. It has higher-toned fruit compared to the Montrachet at the moment: orange blossom, white peach, white flowers and a subtle cold stone scent that becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is tensile on the entry with very fine focus. There is a pleasant saline note that becomes pronounced on the second half, spicier than I recall the 2015 being last year, with impressive persistence. Excellent. Drink 2021-2038.

    Score: 93/95 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (234), December 2017

    The Demoiselles is impressive in 2016, opening in the glass with notes of white flowers, apple, lemon oil and wet stones, framed by a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, racy and vertical, with good concentration and impressively tight-knit and serious, its finish long and precise.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2017 Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles 2 Case 3 150cl £1,950
  • The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Demoiselles Grand Cru has a very precise, quite intense bouquet of apple blossom, struck flint and a light smokiness coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity. This is a pretty Chevalier-Montrachet, offering touches of apricot and quince and quite persistent in the mouth, revealing a subtle stem ginger note toward the finish. Superb. Drink 2021-2040.

White Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Greves Le Clos Blanc 4 Case 6 75cl £210
  • The 2017 Beaune Grèves le Clos Blanc 1er Cru has quite a terse, backward, almost Chablis-like bouquet that demands more coaxing from the glass than the Bressandes Blanc. The palate is quite steely and strict, but unlike the Bressandes, this leaves me wanting just a tad more weight on the back end, which feels just a little tight-lipped considering the vintage. This will no doubt offer more once in bottle.
