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.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2012 Clos de la Roche -

2 Case 6 75cl £650
  • Tasting note: A pungently earthy nose also offers supporting aromas of gentle wood, spice and both red and dark fruit components. There is excellent richness and body to the large-scaled, mineral-inflected and openly powerful flavors that possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract before terminating in a striking long finish. This is a robust and very serious effort that possesses excellent cellaring potential and note well that it will need it as this is presently a bruiser. 93/100

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2011 Clos Saint Denis

3 Case 6 75cl £690
  • Tasting note: A tight and while not completely closed, it would be fair to describe as the nose of subtly layered and spicy dark currant aromas as highly restrained. By contrast, there is fine vibrancy and freshness to the silky and focused middle weight flavors that are shaped by fine grained if distinctly firm tannins, all wrapped in a wonderfully intense, mouth coating, impressively persistent and austere finish. This may be a Clos St. Denis of finesse but it doesn't lack for power or seriousness.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2011 Mazis Chambertin

1 Case 12 75cl £1,025
  • Tasting note: There is a bit more wood on the fresh and open sauvage-infused nose of both red and dark currant, earth and game hints. There is excellent volume to the very smooth and polished mid-palate of the broad-shouldered flavors that possess plenty of dry extract before culminating in a mineral-inflected, powerful and long finish. This moderately firm effort is supported by tannins that are ripe if borderline rustic. A classic Mazis.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2015 Vosne 1er Cru Suchots

1 Case 3 150cl £450
  • Tasting note: In contrast to the prior two wines this is aromatically much more reserved though aggressive swirling eventually liberates Asian spice box, tea, plum and violet scents. There is fine richness to the very suave and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundant amounts of dry extract that impart a sappy texture to the lingering and solidly complex finale. This is both classy and stylish and built to reward medium plus-term aging.

White Burgundy Leflaive V. 2018 Batard Montrachet

1 Bottle 150cl £1,100
  • Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a textural, elegantly muscular wine evocative of pear, toasted almonds, white flowers, peach and vanilla pod. Layered and powerful, it concludes with a long, saline finish. It's more dramatic and broader-shouldered than the suave, seamless Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet this year.

    210, The Wine Advocate

    Also brilliant, the 2011 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes Blanc (100% Marsanne aged in 60% new and 40% 2-year-old barrels) offers up knee weakening notes of orange blossom, honey, buttered tropical fruits and crushed stone-like minerality. This flows to a full-bodied, decadently rich and layered palate that has crystalline-like purity and a knockout finish. Count me impressed and this classic Hermitage Blanc will offer up over two decades of prime drinking. Run by Jacques Grange and Claire Darnaud, Delas, which is owned by the Louis Roederer-Deutz Champagne firm, is producing no nonsense, extremely high quality efforts that are near the top of each of their respective appellations. I was consistently impressed by the wines, and they stood out in all of the larger tastings that I was able to do. In addition, I was able to taste the wines again at the domain, and again once back in the states. These are serious efforts worthy of attention. As to the Hermitages, they produce two, a standard Domaine des Tourettes, and in top vintages, the Les Bessards. In addition to the top-flight Cote Rotie and Hermitage releases, this estate produces a bevy of high quality efforts from Cornas and Saint Joseph.

    Producer note: As is usually the case, I tasted with director Brice de La Morandière along with régisseur (estate manager) Pierre Vincent. They told me that while 2017 had "a growing season that was easier to manage than was 2016, there were still a few problems such as a late April frost scare and enough mildew pressure to cost us at least some yield. Otherwise though, things were reasonably clement and we picked ripe and clean fruit from the 29th of August to the 3rd of September. Yields were good and consistent as they came in around 42 to 43 hl/ha save for the Bourgogne which suffered some frost damage. Sugars and potential alcohols were very good, coming in as they did between 12.5 and 13%. There was not a lot of malic acid but even so pHs were solid at around 3.05 to 3.15. As to the wines, probably the characteristic that defines the 2017s the best is their outstanding balance. They're classically styled white burgundies and we're really quite pleased with the results." La Morandière explained that they are continuing their expansion in the Mâconnais and several of the new entries were really quite impressive.

    Tasting note: An all-but mute if cool and elegant nose only grudgingly reveals its aromas of wet stone, white flowers, tangerine peel and jasmine tea. There is almost painful intensity to the larger-scaled yet refined flavors that brim with both dry extract and a driving minerality before concluding in an equally long finish. This too is very clearly built-to-age and is a superb Chevalier that is going to require extended patience.

    January 2020 Week 2, The Wine Advocate

    The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru was also quite introverted and reserved when I tasted it, mingling scents of orange oil, pear and green apple with hints of crushed chalk and fresh pastry in a youthfully shy bouquet. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, chalky and tensile, with fine concentration, racy acids and a serious, almost austere profile in the context of this charming white Burgundy vintage.

    While many producers along the Côte de Beaune were inclined to accept the generous yields of the 2018 as nature's gift, arguing that Chardonnay can sustain an elevated crop without suffering dilution, Brice de La Morandière and Pierre Vincent told me that they opted to perform an aggressive green harvest, jettisoning around 40% of the potential crop. The result is a charming set of wines with good depth and structure that's nicely differentiated by site, though the wines were still quite introverted when I visited in November. Brice de La Morandière compares them unfavorably to the 2017s, and certainly the 2018s appear to be less tensile and vibrant. But in some quarters, the same criticism was made of the domaine's 1982s—another abundant harvest of ripe grapes—and today, the 1982 Leflaive wines are still drinking brilliantly. So, I am not giving up on the 2018s just yet. Given that de La Morandière and Vincent have made a number of important changes in winemaking practices at the domaine beginning with the 2017 vintage, I was disappointed that they declined to show those wines from bottle. Tasting wines in the midst of their élevage can be informative, certainly, but there is no substitute for tasting finished wines from bottle—an argument I expand on in the introduction to this report. And when a domaine of Leflaive's importance makes notable changes in their winemaking practices, revisiting the resulting wines from bottle is of more than usual interest. Given that de La Morandière and Vincent appear to be doing everything right to rehabilitate the reputation of Domaine Leflaive, I was a little surprised, and I will make effort to taste this watershed vintage from bottle one way or another in the near future.
