Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot 2018 (3L)
94 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) has turned out beautifully in bottle, offering up an elegantly patinated bouquet of citrus oil, peach and apricot mingled with fresh bread, toasted almonds, mint and vanilla pod. This is full-bodied, rich and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit, chalky structure and bright acids. Its powerful, broad-shouldered profile reflects its origins in Les Pougets in the commune of Aloxe-Corton." 04/21
93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a fresh bouquet of fennel, mint and light hazelnut aromas, all complementing the citrus fruit. The palate is vibrant and fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity. Harmonious from start to finish, it delivers an appealing spiciness that leaves the tongue tingling, thanks to a dab of ginger on the aftertaste. Very fine." 01/20
96 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "A full, very dense white that is tightly structured and layered. Plenty of cooked apples, lemons and white pineapple with stone and mineral undertones. Compact and tight. Solid and powerful. Give it three to four years to open, but already fantastic. Better after 2023." 11/20
92-94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A ripe but fresh nose combines notes of green apple, citrus, white peach and soft floral wisps along with hints of mineral reduction. The exceptionally rich flavors possess a plush mid-palate mouthfeel thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that more than buffers the sappy, mineral-driven and tightly wound, indeed linear, finale. This youthfully austere effort is bone-dry and is going to require at least 5 to 7 years of bottle age to fully harmonize and develop better overall depth." 06/20, Issue #79
94 Points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter: "The Jadot holdings are in the Les Pougets climat, which faces due south and can produce quite full-bodied wines. That's not the case here, mind you, as this was picked early and was prevented from going through malolactic fermentation to retain precious acidity. It's a refined, subtle, alluring Grand Cru with notes of white flowers and citrus, some flinty reduction and undertones of aniseed and nutmeg." 10/18
