Always one of the high points of the portfolio, the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) offers up aromas of berries and plums with hints of warm spices and orange rind, framed by a deft touch of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, round and fleshy, with elegantly muscular structuring tannins and lively acids, this will age with grace.
This is also markedly reserved and requires vigorous swirling to reveal its array of cool, pure and wonderfully complex red and dark berries, earth, spice and a pretty floral whiff. There is a positively gorgeous mouthfeel to the sleek but plush flavors that manage to retain very good definition on the dusty, serious and impressively persistent finale. This is already really lovely and potentially great.
A wonderful dry stone Cabotte has been built on the edge of the Clos des Ursules, competition for Andy Goldsworthy. Mid purple, spicy and ripe with a good density of fruit, but perhaps showing the heat a touch more. Then oaky and some firmer tannins. Not quite so harmonious today, but I bet it will become so. Tasted: October 2020
The 2019 Beaune Clos des Ursules 1er Cru has a fragrant bouquet featuring a mélange of red and black fruit intermingled with orange blossom and iodine aromas. Good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a stocky opening, fine structure and symmetry and a fine bead of acidity. There’s a dark fruit flourish toward the finish, which leaves behind a subtle marine-themed aftertaste. Excellent.
Bright ruby. Ripe hedgerow fruits and cherry blossom on an enticing and aromatic nose. The palate is generous and fleshy in the middle, full of red fruit. The chalky grip of tannins adds density and weight, but this is remains rounded and generous through to the finish.
