    Grand Cru Red barrel
    Score: 88-91
    Tasted: Apr 10, 2019
    Drink: 2025+
    Issue: 74
    Note: from a 1.19 ha parcel of vines at the bottom of the slope; 20% whole clusters
    Producer note: Technical director and winemaker Nadine Gublin noted that 2017 "commenced early which is good if there is no late frost, which there was but we lucked out and avoided any significant damage. This was not only fortunate but it also signaled that the vegetative cycle would be advanced. After that the growing season was favorable and once again we began the harvest in August with the whites on the 29th. We waited though to pick the reds so that we could be sure to have good levels of phenolic maturity and thus we started on the 6th of September and continued through to the 12th. The fruit was not only clean but importantly had homogenous maturities. We used varying amounts of whole clusters in the vinifications which is to say from zero to 100%. As to the wines, I find it interesting just how much they improved during the élevage and that is as true for the whites as it is the reds. Perhaps the most attractive qualities of the wines are their freshness and balance which should enable them to age effortlessly." I found the quality of the 2017 reds to be quite good and particularly so with those from the Côte de Nuits. Readers should also take a look herein at a new négociant partnership between Domaine Prieur and co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyère that is called Labruyère-Prieur Sélection.

    Tasting note: Moderate wood influence isn't subtle though neither does it interfere with the spicy and ripe aromas of warm earth and poached plum. The attractively rich and velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors conclude in a bitter chocolate and warm finish. This is awkward today and while my range offers the benefit of the doubt, this was not an especially good showing.

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 Vosne 1er Cru Petits Monts

2 Case 6 75cl £360
  • Tasting note: Here the wood is more moderate if by no means invisible as it sets off the overtly spicy and fresh nose that mixes both red and dark berry fruit aromas that display subtle menthol nuances. There is good punch to the supple and fleshy medium weight flavors that evidence plenty of minerality, all wrapped in a solidly persistent and well-layered finale. This should reward 10 to 12 years of cellar time.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2017 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Fuees

4 Case 6 75cl £385
  • The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru has similar fruit intensity to the Les Baudes, although the oak is a little more vocal and therefore it does not quite have the same transparency. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity. This is quite strict and linear at the moment, showing good grip, although I discern more complexity and nuance on the Les Baudes.

Red Burgundy Jadot, Louis 2014 Morey 1er Cru Clos des Ormes

3 Case 6 75cl £185
  • Tasting note: There is enough wood spice present to remark upon though not so much as to mask the pretty and airy combination of various red berry aromas that are sprinkled with earth and floral nuances. I like the refinement of the round, supple and attractively textured middle weight flavors that are shaped by firm but well-integrated tannins on the solidly persistent and well-balanced finale. In a word, lovely.

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 2016 Chambolle 1er Cru Baudes

2 Case 6 75cl £350
  • 91-93 Burghound 

    Tasting note: A toasty nose features notes of menthol, spiced tea, red currant and a hint of cherry liqueur. The velvety, rich and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess the usual muscularity of a fine Les Baudes, all wrapped in a robust and even more structured finale that is long, balanced and very serious. I would not advise buying this high-quality effort without the express intention to allow it at least 6 to 8 years first.

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.

    Grand Cru Red barrel
    Score: 91-94
    Tasted: Apr 15, 2018
    Drink: 2031+
    Issue: 70
    Note: from a 1.19 ha parcel of vines at the bottom of the slope; 30% whole clusters
    Producer note: Co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyere somewhat plaintively noted that "once again we had limited yields in many of our parcels due to the double hit of frost and mildew. Worse, mildew you can fight but there is only so much that it's possible to do against frost damage. It was frankly depressing to know that even though the growing season had only just begun that you were going to produce at best only 50% of a normal crop and quite possibly even less if the remainder of the season does not go your way. Thankfully conditions did finally improve in the middle of July and largely held there until the harvest in the third week of September. The fruit was both ripe and spotless so at least we did not lose any additional volume to sorting losses. We chose to use slightly more whole clusters than usual during the vinifications, which were done very softly. In the end I'm quite happy with the final quality though it would have been nice to have more than 50% of our normal volumes." As was the case in 2015, the newest addition to the Prieur line-up, which is the Pommard "Charmots", was excellent as was the Clos des Santenots. Readers should also take a look herein at a new négociant partnership between Domaine Prieur and co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyère that is called Labruyère-Prieur Sélection.

    Tasting note: Here too moderate wood along with noticeable menthol sets off aromas of cassis, pungent earth and a lovely hint of lavender. The sleek, vibrant and well-detailed medium weight plus flavors possess a highly attractive mouth feel before terminating in a solidly complex and lingering finish that is a bit less youthfully austere than usual though it is markedly firm. Patience required.

    Note: from a .22 ha parcel in Le Corton
    Producer note: Technical director and winemaker Nadine Gublin noted that 2017 "commenced early which is good if there is no late frost, which there was but we lucked out and avoided any significant damage. This was not only fortunate but it also signaled that the vegetative cycle would be advanced. After that the growing season was favorable and once again we began the harvest in August with the whites on the 29th. We waited though to pick the reds so that we could be sure to have good levels of phenolic maturity and thus we started on the 6th of September and continued through to the 12th. The fruit was not only clean but importantly had homogenous maturities. We did absolutely no lees stirring as there appeared to be very good body and richness from the beginning. As to the wines, I find it interesting just how much they improved during the élevage and that is as true for the whites as it is the reds. Perhaps the most attractive qualities of the wines are their freshness, refined textures and balance which should enable them to age effortlessly." The whites will be bottled without fining or filtration. I found the quality of the 2017 whites to be quite good and particularly so with the upper level wines. Readers should also take a look herein at a new négociant partnership between Domaine Prieur and co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyère that is called Labruyère-Prieur Sélection.

    Tasting note: The airy, cool and restrained nose is wonderfully pure with its essence of green apple, acacia blossom, wet stone and discreet spice and chalk whiffs. The tautly muscular big-bodied flavors are blessed with both an abundance of dry extract as well as almost painful intensity before culminating in a stony, balanced and once again hugely long finish. This beauty is one the best examples of 2017 Corton-Charlemagne.

    Don't miss! 
    Note: from two parcels measuring .59 ha on the Chassagne side, one of which is in the section known as Dents de Chien; Interestingly one of the parcels is planted to an equivalent density of 14,000 vines per ha, notably higher than the usual 10,000
    Producer note: Please see Issue 70 or the Burghound database for co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyere's view of the 2016 vintage. Specifically with respect to the whites he noted that "the chardonnay was spotlessly clean with potential alcohols that ranged from 12.5 to 13% and thus there was no chaptalization. We pressed using whole clusters and did no lees stirring during the élevage. One of the interesting aspects was that the wines didn't seem to reveal their individual terroir characteristics until just recently and another is that they seem to improve with each passing month. I am optimistic that they ultimately will be quite good if not genuinely great." The whites will be bottled without fining or filtration. Please see herein as well a review for the new négociant partnership between Domaine Prieur and co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyère that is called Labruyère-Prieur Sélection. I repeat for the benefit of readers that the domaine made the decision effective with the 2013 vintage to begin using the Diam brand composite corks for all their whites. Diam 10 will be used for the villages and 1ers, while the model 30 will be used for the grands crus.

    Tasting note: Much fresher and admirably pure aromas are comprised by notes of honeysuckle, citrus, pear and white peach. There is outstanding richness and volume to the equally pure, intense and detailed broad-shouldered flavors that brim with minerality on the delineated, focused and notably dry finish. This impeccably well-balanced effort should reward at least 10 years of cellar time and is very much a Montrachet of power but also refinement. In a word, magnificent.
