Tasting Notes

**Note: from 90+ year old vines that are worked by horse**
A very timid nose requires aggressive swirl to slowly coax the spicy and ripe liqueur-like aromas of red currant and exotic tea to reveal themselves. There is fine volume to the supple, round and highly seductive flavors that culminate in a firm, dusty, compact and quite serious finale. This is a big and youthfully austere CSD that is perhaps somewhat less elegant than I typically find it chez Jadot though that is very much in keeping with the 2018 vintage. Patience advised.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (82), April 2021

From the original part of Clos St Denis. Lively purple of medium density. Ripe dark raspberry fruit but attractive and balanced. Quite firm behind and even a little bit of heat, not the same density as Chambertin Clos de Bèze, reasonably enough, but holds together nicely. Tasted: November 2019
