Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot 2015 (3L)
92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet of orange pith, clementine, touches of acacia honey and a mineral undercurrent. This is focused and delineated, showing astute use of oak. There is the weight one expects from a Corton-Charlemagne, allied with a fine bead of acidity and lovely apricot and white peach notes, almost overwhelming on the finish. There is a lot of substance here, and I can see this aging with style. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting." 11/18
94+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Aromas of peach, nutmeg, smoke and flint, plus a light fusel quality. Very silky, intensely flavored wine with terrific mineral pungency and a serious spine of acidity to its penetrating flavors of lemon, apple and baking spices. Wonderfully tactile but without any impression of weight. Perhaps best today on the rising, scented finish, which offers a lovely balance of fruit, spice and mineral elements. This wine will need at least several years of cellaring before it approaches its apogee of enjoyment." 09/17
96 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "This white combines power and intensity, elegance and seamlessness, supporting lemon cake, apple, nut oil and mineral flavors. Though enticing now, this should really sing in two to three years and offer pleasure for the next decade or more. Best from 2020 through 2033. 600 cases made, 160 cases imported." 06/18
93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Corton-Charlemagne did particularly well in 2015 and the Jadot example is just one more confirmation of that success with its ripe but fresh and airy nose of green apple, citrus peel, floral and wet stone-scented aromas. The big-bodied flavors are imposingly-scaled with fine power and drive that carries over to the clean, attractively dry and strikingly lengthy finish that is almost painfully intense. Note that while this should age effortlessly, it should also be approachable relatively early in the context of what is typical for Corton-Charlemagne. In a word, excellent." 06/18, Issue #71
93 Points, William Kelley, Decanter: "A reticent bouquet of lemon oil, wet stones and white flowers leads in to a nicely textural wine with good cut and energy but without quite the concentration or depth of Jadot's grand crus from Puligny and Chassagne, and without the searing minerality that Corton-Charlemagne is capable of." 01/17
