Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has another very composed and delineated bouquet that for me attests more complexity and terroir-expression than the Chambertin. This is just exquisite - you can feel the vineyard here. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, very supple tannins with a surfeit of finesse and refinement on the finish. This is one of the best releases from Louis Jadot this vintage out of over 100 samples reviewed.

Robert Parker Neal Martin | 97 RP-NM
Jadot's 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is stunningly good in the 2015 vintage, bursting from the glass with a primary bouquet of candied red cherry, plum, rose petal, coniferous forest floor and a hint of the black truffle to come, judiciously framed by new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and deep, with wonderful concentration and depth, its generous core of ripe fruit underpinned by bright, racy acids... its potential is immense.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate | 96 RP
(destemmed): Bright, moderately saturated medium red. Alluring, liqueur-like aromas of strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and rose petal are lifted by pungent soil-driven minerality. Wonderfully silky yet utterly weightless, with the urgent flavors of raspberry, pomegranate, spices and flowers conveying outstanding clarity and stunning high-toned sex appeal. Finishes with utterly suave, noble, broad tannins and a vibrant suggestion of red licorice. Wonderfully sappy, elegant wine. Barnier notes that Jadot's Clos de Bèze is typically quite open during its time in the cellar and doesn't really shut down after the bottling.

Vinous Media | 96 VM
Featuring expressive aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry, currant, mineral, clove and toasty spice, this red is solidly built and extremely fresh, with fine balance and a terrific aftertaste. There's a sense of purity and elegance that will take some time to reveal. Best from 2022 through 2043. 160 cases made, 47 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 96 WS
Moderate amounts of wood and menthol mark the wonderfully spicy if notably ripe nose that combines notes of red berry fruit liqueur, a panoply of spices and a whisper of mocha. The highly seductive and concentrated flavors possess an opulent mid-palate mouth feel that is borderline unctuous, all wrapped in a gorgeously long, complex and well-balanced finish. While the sheer density of material should enable this to be approached after only a decade or so, if you wish to see it at its peak, this too is pretty much a "buy and forget you own it" wine.

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.
