2008 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Estournelles St-Jacques" (Pre-Arrival) ($99.99)

90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(September malo) Deep red-ruby. Very ripe, musky aromas of blackberry, black raspberry and chocolate; slightly reduced. Then dense, dry and very young, communicating a saline impression of extract. Powerful but not yet harmonious. Finishes chewy, complex and long, with a vibrating aftertaste. (ST)" (03/2010)

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Alluring, iris-like floral notes mingle with fresh red and black berries and hints of smoke in the nose of Jadots 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles St.-Jacques, then follow on a glycerin-rich, brightly fruited, pungent palate, tinged with brown spices and salt. The overall effect here is one of vintage-typical vibrancy; dynamic interaction; and a complexity such as is associated with the much more expensive wine from neighboring Clos St.-Jacques. I would anticipate at least a dozen years of fascination. (DS)" (06/2010)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "As one would reasonably expect, this is much more elegant with its cool, pure and highly complex nose of wet stone, red and blue pinot fruit and earth hints that can also be found on the detailed, vibrant and tension-filled flavors that culminate in a finish that offers up a real sense of relief. This should benefit from 8 to 10 years of cellar time." (04/2010)

90 points John Gilman: "The 2008 Estournelles had been racked at the start of September and was very much on form in November. This is a very fine and classically black fruity wine in this vintage, as it offers up a complex bouquet of cassis, dark berries, espresso, black minerality and woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and nicely transparent, with suave tannins, good mid-palate depth and impressive length and grip on the focused and nicely nuanced finish. This will be classy and not need a whole lot of cellaring time before it really starts to drink well. (Drink between 2015-2035)" (01/2009)

2009 Louis Jadot 1er Cru Chambolle Musigny "Les Baudes" (Pre-Arrival) ($109.99)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Like the Fuées, this is highly perfumed and very Chambolle with its restrained, complex and ultra-pure nose of red pinot fruit but here there is a more evident taut muscularity to the delineated, intense and equally pure medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent energy as well as a mineral-streak that runs to the serious, dusty and driving finish. I quite like this and the balance and concentration should permit it to age well for at least a decade and last several more. Impressive. *Outstanding*" (05/2011)

92 points John Gilman: "The 2009 Chambolle Baudes is just a tad riper in style than the stunning Nuits Boudots, but does not cross the line into overripeness and maintains lovely freshness in its slightly more broad-shouldered style. The fine, black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs, violets, soil tones, vanillin oak and a nice touch of violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and tangy, with ripe tannins, fine focus and very good length and grip. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2040)" (11/2011)

89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes is a relatively firm style of Chambolle. The wine sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit in a refined expression of this site. The Baudes is elegant and beautifully delineated through to the finish. This turns quite a bit more delicate in the glass, as crushed flowers, berries and mint add the final layers of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029. (AG)" (05/2011)

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Complex nose melds strawberry, minerals and menthol. Silky, perfumed and juicy in the mouth, with an impression of peppery acidity giving a distinctly cool quality to the delicate red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and sneaky length. Here the vineyard stands up to the vintage character. (ST)" (01/2011)

2008 Louis Jadot 1er Cru Vosne Romanee "Beaumonts" (Pre-Arrival) ($109.99)

90-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Jadots 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts leads with an impressive and intriguing meld of dark fresh berries, brown spices, forest floor, fresh ginger, and black pepper, with musk and game adding distinctively animal complexity. This formidable exemplar of its great site was still under the influence of residual CO2 from its very late malo when I last tasted it, so greater textural allure will probably have been gained even short-term in what is already an impressively concentrated and complex as well as brightly, penetratingly persistent Pinot. I suspect this has the makings for at least 15 years of fascination from bottle. (DS)" (06/2010)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A gentle hint of wood allows the elegant, pure and airy plum and black cherry nose to shine as it does not continue onto the spice and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess plenty of verve and fine length on the linear, focused and moderately austere finish. If this understated effort can add depth over the next 6 to 8 years, it could surprise to the upside." (06/2011)

John Gilman: "The bouquet is deep and complex, as it delivers a fine mélange of black cherries, raspberries, a touch of Echézeaux-like bonfire, game, soil tones and a touch of oak spice in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and nicely balanced, with solid mid-palate depth, tangy acids and moderate tannins on the focused finish. Good juice that should drink well after four or five years of bottle age. (Drink between 2014-2035)" (11/2009)

Vinous: "The 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts is a delicate wine with attractive, silky fruit and lovely overall balance. It offers good balance, but comes across as an early-drinker. (AG)" (05/2011)

2007 Louis Jadot 1er Cru Gevrey Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques" (Pre-Arrival) - 6 available ($159.99)

94 points John Gilman: "The 2007 Jadot Clos St. Jacques had been bottled as well the day before my visit, but was still wide open and showing beautifully. The nose is deep, pure and outstanding, as it delivers scents of cassis, sweet dark berries, grilled meat, espresso, a very complex base of black Gevrey minerality, fresh thyme and cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and very pure, with excellent length and focus, a fine core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and beautiful delineation on the tangy and soil-driven finish. Very classy juice in 07. (Drink between 2014-2040)" (01/2009)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Initially subdued but pristine aromas of raspberry, rose petal and crushed stone. The impression of pungent minerality carries through on the palate, giving brilliant definition to the raspberry and stone flavors. High-pitched, sharply focused wine that finishes with outstanding lift and energy." (03/2010)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe, wonderfully pure, profoundly elegant and classy cool red berry fruit nose where the transparency is such that the underlying minerality of a classic Clos St. Jacques is on display. The dusty and ultra pure flavors are built on a firm base of minerality, culminating in a sleekly muscled and powerful finish that is remarkably persistent. A beautiful effort that shows off the more elegant side of the vineyard and as such, this will be approachable young with an hour's worth of air or it can certainly be aged to good effect." (04/2010)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fresh cherry and red raspberry accented with tamarind, black pepper, and smoky black tea scent the Jadot 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques and inform a palate notable among fellow-2007s for its juicy generosity, obvious good health, and overall sense of vivacity. Underlying impressions of marrow-rich stock and damp stone lend intriguing depth, and this polished, seamless, satisfyingly persistent expression of a great site may well pick up additional complexity over the next several years and reward 4-6 years of attention. (DS)" (06/2010)

2007 Louis Jadot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) ($159.99)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is less elegant than the Clos St. Jacques but perhaps slightly more complex with a seductive and very pretty nose of red berries, plum and black cherry trimmed in subtle oak notes that are already invisible on the concentrated, sappy and relatively powerful flavors that possess fine underlying material and ample depth and length." (04/2009)

2006 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Chapelle Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) ($169.99)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Pungent red berries, rose petal, gingerbread and musky underbrush on the nose, with a sappy suggestion of raspberry liqueur emerging with air. Silky and light on its feet, with penetrating red berry and spice flavors given energy on the back end by powerful minerality and captivating floral lift. The liqueur-like raspberry quality seemed to come and go as I drained this bottle to the dregs over a period of 48 hours. Has the tannic spine to support a leisurely evolution in bottle." (03/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator: "A mix of sweet spice and cherry marks this forceful, intense red, whose fruit and tannins both saturate the palate. The flavors linger, playing out on the long aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2024." (05/2009)

92 points John Gilman: "The 2006 Chapelle-Chambertin was showing quite well at the time of my visit, and did not seem to show any ill effects from the hail that hit this vineyard pretty hard in July of 06. The nose is complex, classy (and miracle of miracles) quite open and easy to assess, as it offers up notes of black cherries, cassis, bitter chocolate, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and pure, with solid mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, sound acids and good length and grip. This will be a good bottle by any stretch of the imagination, but it today it does not seem to be much of a step up from the really excellent Estournelles this year. (Drink between 2015-2045)" (12/2009)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Far more successful than two Jadot negociant Chambertin grand crus, their estate 2006 Chapelle-Chambertin from very old vines displays an alluring nose of rose petal and red fruits. In the mouth, pure, sweet red berry fruit is superbly transparent to nuances of an herbal and mineral (peat, iodine, chalk) elements, as an apparently direct result of which the finish here is dynamically interactive, a virtue reinforced by the wine's vintage-typical sense of buoyancy. This is texturally refined as well, though not without ample underlying tannin. One can enjoy it now, or anytime over the next decade, I predict. (DS)" (12/2009)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An exceptionally pure and high-toned lacy, even airy nose is set off by a deft touch of wood and distinct earth and game notes that precede the cool and precise, rich and round flavors that offer good depth and an old vine intensity that is penetrating and impressive with remarkably little hail induced dryness thought there is noticeable austerity." (04/2009)

2007 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Chapelle Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) - 3 available ($169.99)

93 points John Gilman: "The 2007 Chapelle was also showing beautifully, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of sappy black cherries, blood orange, bitter chocolate, game, herb tones, a touch of tobacco, lovely soil tones and new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and quite elegant on the attack, with fine mid-palate depth, ripe tannins and excellent length and grip on the complex and beautifully poised finish. A very classy Chapelle. (Drink between 2014-2040)" (01/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Expressive, high-toned aromas of raspberry, cherry, licorice, minerals and black tea. Dense, sweet and very concentrated, with a small-berry intensity to the blueberry and spice flavors. Finishes long and sweet, with a broad dusting of tannins, a note of licorice and excellent grip. And yet I thought the Bonnes-Mares showed a bit more energy." (03/2010)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " This too sports a distinctly wild berry infused nose with ample earth, underbrush and a hint of animale that can also be found on the fresh, concentrated, full and generous flavors that possess obvious minerality on the seductive yet quite serious finish brimming with dry extract that renders the otherwise firm tannic spine almost invisible. The old vine sap is quite evident and while this is almost seductive at such an early stage, I suspect that things will tighten up considerably in time." (04/2010)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "An elegantly made wine, this feels complete while also seeming completely wrapped in new oak. A scent of black walnuts and chocolate, the suppleness of the texture, the clean moderation of intensity, all focus on the contribution of the oak. Underneath, there's a ripe cherry and strawberry fruit character layered over earthiness, more than substantial enough to consume the oak over the next ten years." (10/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator: "This broad red is laced with cherry, strawberry and vegetal aromas and flavors, yet it's also very firm, linear and crisp. There's detail and elegance, but will require some time to integrate more fully. Best from 2014 through 2028." (05/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Resinous notes practically pitch-like scent the Jadot 2007 Chapelle-Chambertin, along with plum, cherry, and their distilled counterparts. The pungency foreshadowed in the nose is met by an almost confectionary sense of sweet fruit on the palate as well as complimentary hints of peat, licorice, ginger and black pepper. This offers greater complexity and a larger reservoir of juicy primary fruit than its Charmes or Latricieres counterparts, and the grip of the latter but with far more refined yet ample tannins. I would expect to derive a good decade of pleasure and fascination over the next 6-8 years. The bevy of strong performances from this site in 2007 (consult the many instances on which I have reported) signals I suspect its being under-estimated as a cru. (DS)" (06/2010)

2006 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Griotte Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) - 12 available ($169.99)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An exuberant nose features moderately wooded red berry fruit aromas that complement the round, rich, generous and full flavors that possess a supple mid-palate and fine finishing punch and drive. There is a touch of dryness but not enough to upset the overall sense of balance." (04/2008)

92 points John Gilman: "The 2006 Griotte also shows very good potential, but the wine is not quite as fresh and vibrant as the Chapelle. Perhaps this is a function of the wine not being quite as settled in after the malo, but this is also a négociant wine, and the grower here may simply not be quite as precise as Monsieur Lardière in terms of getting the wine laser-like in its focus. But the nose certainly possesses excellent depth and complexity in its mélange of red berries, cherries, cocoa, earth, herb tones and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full and tangy, with good, ripe tannins and nice length on the finish. The tannins are not as substantial here as in the Chapelle, and the wine should drink a few years sooner. It is a lovely example of the vintage, but I have to give the very slight nod to the Chapelle for its greater purity. (Drink between 2013-2040)" (12/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Still reserved, showing cherry, wild strawberry, mineral and spice aromas and flavors that gain steam on the palate as this builds to a long finish. The tannins still have a firm grip, so be patient. Best from 2012 through 2025." (06/2009)

2007 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Griotte Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) - 10 available ($169.99)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A layered and very fresh but ripe wild red berry fruit nose complements the rich, full, generous and also quite fresh medium plus weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract as confers a real sense of volume to the minerally and mildly sauvage finish that possesses seriously impressive length and depth. Griotte rarely is more complex than say Mazis or Latricières but that is the case with this wine in 2007. Definitely worth considering." (04/2009)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A lean, muscular red, with sweet cherry, raspberry and floral notes playing off its firm structure. Dense with both fruit and tannins, and the long aftertaste plays out on a mineral theme. Best from 2013 through 2028." (06/2010)

2009 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Charmes Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) ($189.99)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe, lightly spiced and pure mélange of mostly red berry liqueur and earth notes precedes medium-weight flavors that are surprisingly supple and already quite accessible with a delicious, mouth coating and nicely balanced finish. I like the velvety texture and while it's clear that this is not a Jadot-vinified wine and can't favorably compete with the best here, it is not without a certain appeal." (04/2012)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Charmes-Chambertin shows excellent suppleness in its round fruit. This is a generous, open style with good balance, even if the wine lacks the sheer excitement of the best selections here. Bright red fruits and flowers inform the open, accessible finish. The Charmes is made from purchased wine. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. (AG)" (05/2011)

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Lovely lift to the aromas of minerals, red rose, violet, pepper and menthol. Sweet and suave but not especially complex. In a rather feminine style, finishing with very smooth tannins, a note of caramel and very good floral persistence. This is from purchased wine but Lardiere notes that the grower has extended his maceration times in recent years." (01/2011)

2003 Louis Jadot Grand Cru Charmes Chambertin (Pre-Arrival) - 12 available ($189.99)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Riper and fuller on the nose with anise, mocha, tobacco and intense plum if not prune with soft, forward, lush and opulent mouth coating flavors underpinned by buried structure and excellent finishing intensity. This is a generous but structured effort that will need a decade in bottle to be at its best." (04/2005)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Cherry, spices and smoke on the nose. Supple, solid and sweet but with less real depth and class than the Chapelle. There's plenty of acidity here, but today the tannins seem a tad dry. Chocolatey on the back end." (09/2006)

2015 Domaine Louis Jadot Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival) - 6 available ($379.99)

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This too is overtly floral with a breathtaking array of lilac, lavender, rose petal and violet scents adding both breadth and elegance to the array of red currant, plum, spice and forest floor scents. The suave, round and highly seductive broad-shouldered flavors possess superb mid-palate concentration before terminating in a hugely long, sappy and almost painfully intense finish where hints of mocha and warmth can be discerned. This is a serious and youthfully brooding Cham that is also going to require a very long stay in a cold cellar; in short, this is a buy and forget wine. (93-96)/2035+" (04/2017)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a composed and harmonious, assured bouquet with mineral-driven red berry fruit, a touch of undergrowth and chalk emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite firm tannin. This is a conservative, correct Chambertin with superb structure, real density and assertiveness towards the finish. Will it develop the personality of the Mazis-Chambertin? Still, this represents an impressive Chambertin from Jadot that will give 20-30 years of pleasure." (12/2016)

91-94 points Vinous: "(not Jadot's vinification): Medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of black cherry, licorice and herbs. Juicy, penetrating and tightly wound, displaying lovely clarity but not quite the give or lift of the amazing Chapelle. Today the wine's intense dark cherry and berry flavors are a bit cut off by its tannins, giving the finish a distinctly firm edge. This extremely backward wine will need a good decade of bottle aging." (01/2017)
