Tasting Notes

Strong reduction and less obvious, though hardly invisible, wood presently dominates the underlying fruit. There is a wonderfully seductive mouthfeel to the velvet-textured flavors that possess that beguiling inner mouth perfume as well as plenty of dry extract that buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the solidly lingering and mildly warm finish. This too needs to add depth but that should gradually develop over time.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (78), April 2020

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru has a perfumed, pure bouquet of rose-petal-infused red cherry, crushed strawberry and orange peel aromas that feel cohesive and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, good depth and plenty of flesh, though the Les Baudes offers a little more backbone and intellect. 2022 - 2040

Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2020

Like this year's Baudes, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées (Domaine Louis Jadot) is especially successful, revealing lovely aromas of raspberries, potpourri, Asian spices, black tea and cherries. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and supple, with a layered core that's gourmand and charming, concluding with a long and perfumed finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Jan 20 Wee), January 2020

Ripe, fleshy red cherries and a little white pepper on the nose with a little toast. Structured and rich, with juicy red fruit at the core and lifted floral tones on the back end. Powderry, soft tannins persist through to the very long finish that should make this a wine to lay down.
