2015 Domaine Louis Jadot (Heritiers) Beaune 1er Cru "Boucherottes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1300123 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is plenty of menthol on the essence of red cherry and plum-suffused nose. The fullbodied but supple medium-bodied flavors possess outstanding richness along with excellent concentration that displays terrific depth and length on the built-to-age finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is better than it usually is and in particular more complex. (90-93)/2027+  (4/2017)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Les Boucherottes has a subtle bouquet that comes across more introspective than the 2015 Beaune Clos des Couchereaux, the fruit darker but equally well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannin - plenty of tart red cherry fruit, quite saline in the mouth leading to an understated but very focused finish. This is another top-notch Beaune Premier Cru from Louis Jadot. The wines under the "Héritiers des Louis Jadot" represent crus whereby the vines have historically belonged to the Jadot family.

92 points Decanter

 The Boucherottes is the most brooding and soil-driven of the flight of Beaune premier crus from Jadot, located on the Pommard side of the appellation below Clos des Mouches. Aromas of dark fruit, grilled venison and woodsmoke lead into a sapid, ample palate which retains good energy and precision through the finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2040  (2/2017)

90-92 points Vinous

 (Boucherottes is in the extremely southern part of Beaune, below Clos des Mouches): Bright, dark red. Complex scents of oak, mint and soil add interest to the raspberry and red cherry fruit aromas. Rich and sweet on the palate, but with good licorice and menthol lift; lovely savory wine with serious palate presence. Finishes classically dry and long, with the tannins spreading out to saturate the palate  (1/2017)

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
