This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.
Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — 8 days ago
Nose has flinty pineapple, ripe mango, moist light oak and white flowers.
Palate has warm stone fruit mash, incredible passion fruit mousse, chalky-ripe yellow peach, light on the acidity, but incredibly long finish.
Solid wine but the acidity of the 2013 version (previously posted) is missing. 😐
Photos from our visit to Jadot from the Spring of 2018, the red wine barrel room packed full-full-full of 2017's, the ceiling of their fermentation room of all wood structure with massive/beautiful spans, the wood vats used for initial processing of new red fruit and our bottle of the evening. I wish we could have tasted any vintage of this wine when we visited, but alas it didn't make it into our lineup. — 13 days ago
Easy drinking Chardonnay. Citrus notes on the palate with a bit of creaminess that complements seafood in cream sauces. Great with salmon & shrimp in a Cajun sauce or shrimp Alfredo. — 3 days ago
