Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" Louis Jadot 2012 (750ML)
"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)
"Building off the considerable success of their 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary 1er Cru, Jadot has decided to make the wine again in top years. One of the highlights in this range, the 2012 boasts stunning power, depth and harmony. The lifted aromatics recall the Ursules, but here the fruit possesses more volume and creaminess. An explosive, layered finish rounds things out in style. Some of the parcels in the blend are Avaux, Cent Vignes, Pertuisots, Vignes Franches, PerriÃ¨res, Toussaints and Chouacheux...92-94" Antonio Galloni, VM (1/2014)
"...blend of 17 different owned 1ers plus another 4 that were bought in; this was given 27 months of Ã©levage 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)
