Wine Critic Reviews for 2002 Louis Jadot Musigny

(Maison Louis Jadot Musigny Grand Cru Red) A dazzlingly complex and fine nose reveals an incredible breadth of spice-box aromas that are displaying only a whisper of secondary development. The ripe and seductive yet incredibly intense medium-bodied flavors display marvelous depth and perfect balance on the sappy, sweet, powerful and hugely long finish that is beautifully detailed and focused. This beauty is a model of grace and understatement and while it could be drunk now with pleasure I would advise waiting as it seems quite clear that there is still plenty of unrealized development potential. In sum, this is stunningly good. (Drink starting 2022).

Good full deep red. Superripe, almost candied aromas of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Dense, silky and sweet but also juicy and light on its feet, with uncanny purity and delineation of flavor. The black fruit and dark chocolate flavors are joined by flowers and blood orange on the back half of this wine, which finishes with uncanny lift and grip and great persistence.

Sadly, Jadot only produces tiny amounts of Musigny, but those lucky enough to secure some of the 2002 will be enthralled. Its boisterous aromas greet the nose with flowers, spices, raspberries, and cherries. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied effort is coiled, waiting to strike. Cloves, sweet red fruits, candied blackberries, violets, and roses can be discerned in its tightly wound personality. A wine of power and harmony, it is chewy textured, dense and has a firm structure that demands cellaring. Projected maturity: 2010-2024. Bravo!

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94-97 RP
(Musigny- Maison Louis Jadot) Readers are already well aware of my rather lukewarm enthusiasm for the pretty, fruit-driven vintage of 2002, and when even a young vintage of Musigny has difficulty harnessing a profound signature of terroir, then I think my estimate of the vintage is not so far-fetched as it is made out to be in certain circles! The 2002 Jadot Musigny is a perfectly pleasant glass of pinot, offering up a pretty nose of red and black cherries, juniper berries, gamebirds, coffee, woodsmoke and a nice framing of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and shows lovely fruit and spice-derived complexity (only missing its dirt!), with lovely focus and balance, good mid-palate depth, moderate, quite ripe tannins and fine length and grip on the tangy and fruit-driven finish. This is one of the better 2002 red Burgundies I have had in the last few years, but I would be absolutely astonished if it ever blossoms into a great vintage of Musigny! (Drink between 2018-2060).

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Louis Jadot: If you've ever wondered just how much difference terroir can make when it comes to how a wine tastes, Maison Louis Jadot can serve as an excellent point of comparison. If you taste their wine, then try a typical Californian Chardonnay, it's like two different worlds. From the most expensive pieces of art to affordable heavy-hitters, this winery delivers consistent quality, and their accessibility may be their strongest asset. If you've ever wanted to taste fine white wines but were afraid of their price point, Maison Louis Jadot is the best place to start. The flavors here are classic Macon-Village, with a strong presence of fresh, juicy apples and sharp citrus, along with subtle and sensual notes of delicate flowers. The textures of the wine are intricate and nuanced, and every sip feels like a new window into their workings.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
