Tasting Notes

A classic nose of green apple, citrus peel, white fruit and wet stone introduces racy, ultra-intense and almost aggressively mineral-driven flavors that don't quite possess the sheer weight and power of the Montrachet on the still impressively complex and lingering finish. This too is quite firm and will need every bit of 12 to 15 years to reveal its full, and considerable, potential.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was poured after the Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet, and I must admit, it rather pales by comparison, lacking the same penetration and mineral drive. The bouquet just seems rather static at the moment. The palate is balanced and quite rounded in the mouth, with a subtle spiciness, and almost yeasty toward the finish. Not bad, although not the best Grand Cru from Jadot this year. (DIAM GC closure)

Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, displaying a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk and a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, tensile and tight-knit, with chewy structuring dry extract, tangy acids and a long, grippy finish. This is built for the cellar and will be well worth seeking out.
