2010 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Brilliant pale yellow. Precise, penetrating aromas of green melon, ginger, quinine and dusty stone. Silky on entry, then sappy and deep in the middle, with a powerful crushed stone character and strong limey acidity combining to give the wine uncanny energy. This is almost painful today. This extremely dense, long wine may ultimately surpass Jadot's Chevalier-Montrachet. 96(+?) points

*Don't miss!* Wood toast and strong reduction presently render the nose unreadable but there is excellent freshness and verve to the intensely mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that possess impressive mid-palate concentration. There is good richness to the mouth coating, dry, clean and pure finish that is perhaps slightly less distinguished in 2010 than I'm used to seeing. That said, this is still entirely admirable and in fairness, the wine is clearly youthfully awkward today and thus may not be revealing its true potential.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Jadot’s 2010 Corton-Charlemagne (from Pougets) is surprisingly seamless from start to finish. Bright floral notes lead to pears, apples and white peaches. The 2010 has both softness and superb delineation. Although it is immensely appealing today, the Corton-Charlemagne is best cellared for at least a few years. The balance and overall sense of harmony are both striking. Anticipated maturity: 2020+.
