94-97 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "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." 11/21

Outer quote mark 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. The 2020 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, delivering concentrated, flavorful wines with alcohol levels between 13.3% and 13.7% and with low pHs. Winemaker Frédéric Barnier told me that efforts were made to pick earlier in the day, and that fruit waiting to be processed was kept fresh in a special cold room. In the cellar, foudres and 500-liter barrels now complement classic 228-liter pièces, a further evolution adapting to warmer, riper vintages. But aside from the quality of the 2020s and these technical developments, described in more detail in the accompanying tasting notes, there's other noteworthy news too: in 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards.

Outer quote mark This is one of the few wines in the range that displayed any appreciable reduction and here it's enough to mask the nuance of what is clearly ripe fruit. On the palate there is seriously good volume and even better density to the powerful and tautly muscular imposingly scaled flavors that also coat the mouth with dry extract on the markedly dry and hugely long finale. This is also very much built for the longer-term yet it's not so structured that it couldn't be approached after 8 to 10 years of keeping. Inner quote mark (6/2022)

  • v93-95

Outer quote mark The 2020 Montrachet Grand Cru has a slight reduction on the nose but there is real intensity here with mineral-driven citrus fruit, flint, light earthy scents and a touch of wild mint. The palate is beautifully balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and vibrant, lightly spiced with satisfying weight on the finish. Not the best Montrachet that I have ever tasted from Jadot, but certainly this has a lot of potential. Closure: Diam (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2021)
