2015 Beaune 1er Cru Celebration, Louis Jadot

2015 is a special vintage in the Côte d'Or, with many vignerons commenting that it is a more concentrated version of the great 2005 vintage. The reds are big and powerful but crucially, all have excellent acidity which means that they will last for a very long time. That's the good news. The bad news is that yields across the region were down, meaning there is less wine to satisfy the ever-growing demand.

Jadot's Beaune 1er Cru Celebration cuvée is a blend of their seventeen best performing premier cru Beaune vineyards. It is only produced in vintages that they deem to be worth celebrating - the first was 2009, the second was 2012 and this 2015 is the third release. Both previous releases were excellent and demand was strong. 2015 is perhaps the most serious of this trio. It will require a year or two in the cellar before you begin to drink it but it will provide a great deal of enjoyment for many years to come.

If you like Burgundy and you like drinking great vintages but don't want to spend a fortune, then this is the wine for you. We can also offer a range of formats, from regular bottles all the way through to a 9 litre Salmanazar!

The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Celebration is a rich, radiant wine. Sumptuous and expansive on the palate, the 2015 possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous depth. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive in this decidedly potent, somber Beaune 1er Cru from Jadot. Even with all of its natural richness, the 2015 is massively tannic and shut down. I wouldn’t dream of opening a bottle anytime soon. The combination of 19 climats results in a Beaune of unusual complexity and pedigree, but readers will have to be patient. The 2015 was only bottled in December 2017.
