Louis Jadot 2017

The 2017 Louis Jadot wines are now available to buy and there is high quality throughout their diverse range, in both reds and whites. Yields were up in Burgundy after a string of small vintages, with 2017 the biggest since 2009. Stylistically the wines have great purity and freshness, yet good levels of ripeness due to a sunny, dry summer. To read our take on the vintage, please see below. 
 
The White Wines
2017 was unaffected by the severe frosts that plagued 2016 and as a result the volumes are much improved. The best sites in the Côte d’Or produced outstanding wines, with bright acidity yet rich textures and overall the wines found a perfect balance. This was particularly evident in Meursault where the fresher acidity tamed the oiliness in the wines - all three of Meursault NarvauxMeursault Charmes, and Meursault Genevrières showed very well. Neal Martin says that the Narvaux (90-92 points) has ‘’...bitter lemon on the finish to beg you back for another sip. Excellent.’’ Of the Charmes, he calls it "an excellent Meursault" and gives it 92-94 points. The freshness and balance were again evident in the Puligny Combettes, which has a real wow factor, even at this young age. In awarding it 91-93 points, Neal says that it is "so delicious that it will be difficult to resist cracking it open young." At the top end, Jadot's remarkable Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles has 94-96 points from Neal and is labelled "superb." At their best, the whites share similarities with 2014 thanks to the prominent acidity and cool, savoury fruit. Unlike 2014, most are less structured and should therefore provide earlier drinking pleasure, with many drinking well already.
 
The Red Wines
Red wine production similarly increased in 2017, though not to the extent of the whites. Whereas hail missed the Côte d'Or, Beaujolais was not quite so fortunate and as such, volumes have been severely affected. The quality, however, remains very good – the Moulin à Vent Clos de Rochegrès is a particular highlight with bright, ripe red fruits and seamless tannins that will make for delicious early drinking. The wines from the Côte de Nuits have great purity, with moderate alcohols yet ripe fruit characteristics thanks to the touch of hydric stress from low rainfall and a high level of sunshine without excess heat. They have the vibrant acidity, ripe fruit and a level of approachability and freshness akin to 2014 and 2012. Neal was also impressed with Jadot's reds, as he was with the whites. Of the Beaune Clos des Ursules, he calls it "harmonious" and "excellent" and gives it 90-92 points. We were particularly impressed by the Gevrey Clos St Jacques (91-93 points), which Neal says is "very precise and focused, showing superb edginess and impressive terroir expression." We thought the Chapelle Chambertin had great density and power without sacrificing balance. The Chambertin Clos de Bèze was, as usual, very impressive (92-94 points) and Neal says it has "great potential." However, it was the Bonnes Mares which he saved particular praise for(94-96 points), calling it "one of the best I have tasted in this vintage." Most wines in this vintage will be delicious after short cellaring, but the top Premier Crus and Grand Crus have ample structure to improve and soften in the bottle for the mid to long-term.
 
Since it was founded in 1859, Maison Louis Jadot has acquired many different vineyards throughout the Cote d’Or and today holds one of the largest areas under vine and some of the most famous vineyards in the region. Jadot’s wines have, in recent vintages especially, reached a level of quality that cannot be ignored.
