The strength of the Beaune appellation is grounded in its 337 hectares of premier cru vineyards, which offer great stylistic diversity. Founded in Beaune in 1859, Maison Louis Jadot has always focused on the terroirs of these premiers crus, emphasizing their huge potential. With the release of the 2012 vintage (a year of small yields and extremely high quality), we would like to offer you our Celebration of Beaune's premiers crus. This blend is based on a number of different climats, whose names are featured on the front label: Le Clos Des Ursules, Les Boucherottes, Les Pertuisots, Les Theurons, Les Avaux, Les Aigrots, Les Cents Vignes, Les Greves, Les Perrieres, Aux Coucherias, Les Tuvilains, Les Chouacheux, Les Montrevenots, Les Sizies, Les Reversees, Les Toussaints, Aux Cras, Les Vignes Franches, and Les Bressandes.

Harvest Note
2012 was a challenging growing season, characterized by unusual weather patterns. We eased gently into winter, but the mild weather gave way to very cold temperatures at the beginning of February, and hard frosts caused a bit of damage in some areas. March was far milder, allowing bud break to begin early. The weather continued to be chaotic throughout summer, with several thundery storms bringing hail to the region (mainly in the Côte de Beaune). The second half of August and the month of September saw the advent of conditions more favorable to ripening, which proceeded well. The low yields we saw helped the grapes ripen fully.
Tasting Note
This wine is deeply colored, and shows notes of dark berries. Its tannins are fine grained and silky, showing the hallmark complexity and richness of Beaune's premiers crus.
Food Pairing
Pair with delicate meat dishes and most cheeses.
