Beaune Premier Cru Anniversaire

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies

Beaune Premier Cru Anniversaire

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Premiers Crus

Created specially to commemorate this renowned winery’s 150th Anniversary, this limited production cuvée is a selection of 17 Jadot vineyards within the Beaune appellation: Les Clos des Ursules, Les Boucherottes, Les Pertuisots, Les Theurons, Les Avaux, Les Aigrots, Les Cents Vignes, Les Greves, Les Perrieres, Les Coucherais, Les Tuvilains, Les Chouacheux, Les Montrevenots, Les Champs Pimonts, Les Belissands, Les Reversees and Les Toussaints. On the grape selection, Winemaker Jacques Lardière explains, “2009 was a grand vintage of quality and the year of our 150th anniversary. To celebrate both occasions, we have assembled grapes from Beaune’s 17 Premiers Crus and present a cuvée that is a fond memory of wine, of Burgundy and of Jadot.” Made with traditional Burgundy winemaking methods, the wine was aged on the lees in 33% new French oak barrels for 18 months. This exceptional cuvée has the potential to age for 30 years or more.

tasting note

“The 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary Cuvee is a commemorative wine created to celebrate Jadot’s 150th birthday. The 150th Anniversary Cuvee is a selection of the maison’s best parcels in the Cote de Beaune. It boasts extraordinary richness and length, not to mention fabulous overall balance. Seemingly endless layers of intensely fragrant dark red fruit build to the effortless, huge finish. This is a fabulous showing from Jadot. It is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. I think it is safe to say Jadot hit it out the park with this effort. Readers will be tempted to drink the 2009 early, so immense is its appeal, but opening a bottle before its tenth birthday is likely to be nothing more than an academic exercise. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.”
