Tasting Notes

**from En Gémeaux; these are the oldest vines in the Jadot portfolio of owned vineyards**

This is quite generously wooded with plenty of menthol character to the otherwise more typical notes of earth, underbrush and humus that add breadth to the fresh and ripe red and dark currant aromas. The mouth feel of the mid-palate is unusually supple and relatively forward as the substantially scaled flavors display plenty of minerality on the gorgeously long finish that turns austere, serious and exceptionally firmly structured. This is very much old school in character and is going to need a very long stay in an appropriately cool cellar and my instincts are that this would not be a good candidate for early enjoyment. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if you're not going to age if for at least 12 years or so, don't buy it.

The glorious 2012 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, which is domaine-owned, shows a little more wood at the moment although it is embroidered with the carapace black cherry and raspberry fruit. With aeration, it reveals attractive sea spray aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with cashmere tannins and sensual texture that lend it a more Vosne-like personality. It is very harmonious and there is a thrilling crescendo towards its precocious, yet classy finish. Superb.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (210), December 2013

Good medium red. Raspberry and mineral aromas show hints of very ripe fruit. Dense, lush and sweet, conveying a wonderfully smooth grain to the red berry, spice and graphite flavors. The wine's firm tannins are almost hidden today by its velvety texture. Very long and vibrant on the aftertaste. 2023 - 2038
