The 2019 Musigny Grand Cru is another cuvée in which Jadot has included 30% whole clusters. It has a fresh, vibrant bouquet of mainly black fruit infused with black pepper, truffle and sous-bois and gaining in intensity with every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and very well balanced, displaying real finesse and touches of sage and cumin toward a complex finish that in my opinion is enhanced by the stems (incidentally, this is not the first time they have been used, often to increase the volume and improve the pigeage). This is a cerebral and captivating Musigny that will drink well for 40–50 years.
There are two barrels of the 2019 Musigny Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot), a brilliant cuvée that soars from the glass with aromas of cherries, raspberries, rose petals, blood orange, sweet soil tones and Indian spices. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's sumptuous and concentrated, with beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and a long, penetrating finish.
A few whole bunches were used to fill the tank, and they may also liven up the nose. Magisterial, imperial purple in colour with a super-sumptuous bouquet. Too much of a good thing or just a fabulous wine? Let’s check the palate. Here the style and balance of fruit is close to impeccable, somewhere between optimum and maximum ripeness, with some fractionally dry notes (could be the whole bunches in this youthful stage) appearing at the finish. This should all knit together though. Tasted: October 2020
