Mid yellow in colour. The nose hints at majesty while keeping its powder dry. This takes time to build on the palate, it is more in yellow fruit than most of the Jadot wines, with a little sucrosity, and still the lemon citrus inflection which makes these 2020 whites work so well, and the expected length. Tasted: November 2021
Rich and dramatic, the 2020 Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot) bursts with aromas of peach and pear mingled with orange oil, beeswax, spices and toasted bread. Full-bodied, ample and multidimensional, it's textural and enveloping, with a layered mid-palate that's girdled by tangy acids, concluding with an expansive, saline finish.
