2005 Domaine des Héritières (Louis Jadot) Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Ursules"

SKU #1027844 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Enticing sweet blackberry and black currant flavors, with a touch of spice and mineral for complexity. Very pure, with harmony and finesse—all the components for a long life. Lingering aftertaste of cassis and mineral. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The most refined of this group of Beaune 1ers with the most aromatic complexity as well to the beautiful blend of red, black and violet notes that introduce rich, suave and velvety medium full flavors that are classy, powerful and vibrant. This is a bigger and bolder wine than the Boucherottes but the balance and purity of the former holds its own with the size and weight of the Ursules. A stylistic choice. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2007)

90-92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The flagship Jadot Beaune, the Clos des Ursules, is also outstanding in 2005. The bouquet is very deep and quite ripe, as it offers up a flashy blend of black cherries, plums, chocolate, vinesmoke, earth and a touch of tobacco. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, plush and very deep, with fine purity, impressive mid-palate depth, ripe tannins and a long, complex and powerful finish. This is bigger, more powerful and concentrated than the Grèves, but to my palate it is not quite as tightly knit, focused and complex. The impression of acidity here is also noticeably lower than the Grèves. That said, this too is a very successful bottle of Beaune in this vintage. Inner quote mark (1/2007)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep, bright red. Very ripe but vibrant aromas of dark raspberry, brown spices and mocha, complemented by an earthy element. Sweet and lush but with the firm minerality, juicy acidity and tannic spine for a slow evolution in bottle. For all its ripeness and palate presence, this communicates an almost magically light touch. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This has the saturation and compression of the vintage, needing hours of air to emerge from its substantial structure. What begins to show is gamey, meaty and broad, with a red fruit highlight similar to cranberry. Inner quote mark (4/2009)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Jadot’s flagship 2005 Beaune Vignes Franches Clos des Ursules leads with high-toned cherry, tarragon, and brown spice aromas, displays a juicy, ripe, fresh fruit palate impression, and finishes with subtle herbal and spicy inflections as well as a hint of roughness. The overall impression is of considerable density, energy, and tannin, and I think this has been caught at a less than optimal moment as regards its tannins and for translating its concentration and ripeness into flavor personality. (DS) 89-91+ Inner quote mark (6/2007)
