Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" Louis Jadot 2012 (6L)

Add to Favorites



"This is great Premier Cru Burgundy from Jacques Lardiere under $50 and it will age three decades - where else can you find this story and quality from the Cote d'Or? And while there is some deceiving approachability with its inviting mouthful of red fruit, this is a serious wine that is about its underlying structure and subtle nuances. Great inner perfume stains the palate with notes of cherry, strawberries, red berries, tea, spice, minerality and eucalyptus. This is traditional Burgundy with awesome focus, acidity and structure here. We agree with Allen Meadows on this is one to stock-up on as it will be a rare value treasure as it ages!...93-94" Zachys Buying Team (2/2016)

Antonio Galloni

92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “Jadot’s 2012 Beaune 1er Cru Celebration is aromatically quite expressive, with lovely bright, floral notes that play off a core of red berry and stone fruits. The gracious, almost feminine, bouquet is alluring and suggests a wine that is quite open, but the palate sensation is completely different. Tiny yields and high skin to juice ratios yielded red Burgundies with huge tannic clout that obscures the fruit, which is exactly how the wine comes across in tasting. It will be interesting to see if the 2012 softens over time, or if it gains volume with aging. Today, it is decidedly on the austere side of things.” 03/18


"...blend of 17 different owned 1ers plus another 4 that were bought in; this was given 27 months of élevage before bottling). A subtle touch of wood sets off ripe and relatively elegant notes of earth, dark cherry and spice. The mid-palate is dense, serious and powerful with plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the moderately austere, backward and built-to-age finale. For readers having a child or grandchild in 2012 this would be a good choice to buy in quantity at a price that won't break the bank...92" Allen Meadows, BH (4/2015)
