Tasting Notes

**Note: from 90+ year old vines in a .32 ha parcel**
There is a whiff of green tea character on the even spicier aromas of red and dark cherry, anise and hoisin nuances. The suave and gorgeously textured broad-shouldered yet wonderfully refined flavors also exude plenty of minerality while coating the palate on the powerful, serious and overtly austere finish that goes on and goes. This beauty of a Musigny is markedly compact and clearly constructed to repay extended keeping.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (90), April 2013

There are 350 liters of the 2021 Musigny Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot), a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine evocative of raspberries and plums mingled with orange rind, exotic spices and rose petals. Built around powdery tannins and lively acids, it concludes with a saline, perfumed finish.

William Kelley, RobertParker.com, January 2023

1 x 350 litre barrel is the whole crop! No great depth to the colour, nor do I pick up much on the nose. The more sumptuous style of Musigny shows on the palate but in a muted register. Just a fraction peppery behind but the weight of slightly riper fruit returns behind that. Persistent, sensual, well made, just not on a fortissimo scale this year. Drink from 2028-2035+. Tasted: October 2022
