Clos Vougeot Louis Jadot 2012 (750ML)
93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Louis Jadot has a lifted, licorice-tinged bouquet with plenty of guts to it. There aromatics do not hold back. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, dense black fruit with a structured finish that does not quite deliver the complexity the aromatics suggest at first, but with aeration, manifests subtle nuances and fine mineralité. This is a great success for winemaker Frédéric Barnier and his team." 10/15
93-95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2012 Clos Vougeot is one of the most impressive of the Grand Crus I tasted at Jadot this year. Powerful, rich and layered, the 2012 has more than enough fruit to balance the tannins. Dark red fruit, scorched earth, chalk and iron are all layered into the supple, racy finish. This is a surprisingly finessed Clos Vougeot. Hints of rose petal and mint add lift on the close. There is so much to admire here." 1/14
92+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Full red. Perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, red cherry, licorice pastille and flowers. Sappy, savory and a bit youthfully clenched and four-square on the palate, showing a rather austere, medicinal character accentuated by a slightly herbal peppery quality. Today the fruit is kept under wraps by the wine's firm spine of acids and tannins. Revealed a note of maraschino cherry with 48 hours in the recorked bottle but retained its menthol and licorice qualities. This will require patience." 03/15
92 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Pure cherry and raspberry flavors are driven by vivid acidity and a firm base of tannins, keeping this lean and tense, with an innate minerality. Still a bit tight and compact on the finish, but this finds equilibrium with some sweet fruit. Best from 2019 through 2032. 450 cases made. " 6/15
