Louis Jadot COTE DE NUITS-VILLAGES, LE VAUCRAIN DOMAINE LOUIS JADOT JADOT 2019
Whispers of smoke and camphor mingle into black cherry and violet in this spicy, fleshy Pinot Noir. Full bodied and decadent in mouthfeel, it's packed with ripe, powerful blackberry and plum flavors edged with burnt caramel and shavings of peppercorn. This robust but freshly balanced wine is ready now and will likely improve through 2029.
Always one of the finest value propositions in the range, the 2019 Côte de Nuits-Villages Le Vaucrain (Domaine Louis Jadot) is turning out very nicely once again, bursting with aromas of plums, warm spices and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, lively and elegant, it's charming and expressive, with a succulent core of fruit and powdery structuring tannins.
This version is well-marked by vanilla and resin notes, with very ripe blackberry and plum fruit in the background. Tannic, leaving an astringent feel. Drink now through 2025. 200 cases imported.
