Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Bouzeron Village 2017
December 31, 2020 90 Points - Top 100 Wineries - Best of 2020 Wine & Spirits

Gracious and satisfying, this comes from Jadot's holdings in Bouzeron, the only AOC in Burgundy dedicated solely to the oft-forgotten aligote. Its supple texture will get along well with crispy roast chicken and root vegetables, the wine is open and approachable in its balance of richness and delicacy.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Chablis Fourchaume Premier Cru 2017
December 31, 2020 93 Points - Top 100 Wineries - Best of 2020 Wine & Spirits

This wine instantly communicates springtime in its earthy scents and crisp spring-water snap. A salty acidity keeps the wine fresh in spite of its earthy opulence. With energetic verve and arresting flavors rare for a negociant wine, it lasts and lasts, clear as a tolling bell.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Pommard 2017
December 31, 2020 92 Points - Top 100 Wineries - Best of 2020 Wine & Spirits

Ethereal rose scents open into substantially darker cherry flavors that integrate into the mineral notes with air, adding a sweet fruit edge to the gracious tannins. Enticing and complex.

This wine includes fruit from Montes's vineyards in Zapallar, Casablanca and the coastal hills of Aconcagua. It's a long line-drive of Asian-pear flavor, brisk and juicy, markedly mineral in its smoke-tinged acidity. It's one of our Top 100 Best Buys of 2020.

Tempranillo makes up only ten percent of this blend with cabernet and carmenere, syrah another 30, but together they point it in a Mediterranean direction. The wine's fragrant red fruit and herbal scents turn Colchagua's warmth towards freshness.

Michel Redde et Fils Pouilly-Fumé La Moynerie 2018
December 31, 2020 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

Named after the producer's winery, this wine is a blend of fruit from different parts of the appellation. A little age has rounded out the wine, giving richness as well as a bite of acidity at the end.

Château d’Aqueria Lirac Rouge 2017
December 31, 2020 90 Points Wine Enthusiast

Perfumed whiffs of violet, smoke and anise accent luscious blueberry and black fig flavors. It's full-bodied and silken on the palate but balanced by fresh acidity and firm, gripping tannins that lend an upright edge to the finish.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Boudots Premier Cru 2018
December 01, 2020 93 Points Wine Enthusiast

Subtlety characterizes the nose of this wine, which offers faint notions of cherry, woodsmoke and a touch of toasty oak. These suggestions come together on the juicy, slender body, held by a web of slightly crunchy tannins. More air reveals subtle depth and fragrant dimension.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Chorey les Beaune Beaumonts 2018
December 01, 2020 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

Toasty oak on the nose of this wine is smoky and aromatic, lending richness to the cherry notions. The palate comes in with freshness and red, ripe cherry fruit that has an energy all of its own. Flowing with juiciness, the palate holds everything in a fine web of tannin. The finish is bright and resonant.

In this wine, smoky red-cherry aromas are vivid. They are also central to the palate where the juiciness and smokiness are accentuated and given a brooding spin. Firm tannins make for a crunchy frame and promise evolution.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Santenay La Maladiere Premier Cru
December 01, 2020 92 Points VinousMedia.com

Ripe, red-cherry notes combine seamlessly with subtle oak toast on the nose of this wine, while an overtone of Morello hovers. That Morello gets full rein on the juicy, bright palate, where its purity becomes apparent. Fine-boned tannins lend structure and are a little drying. The fresh finish is mouthwatering, appetizing and balanced.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques Premier Cru 2018
December 01, 2020 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

This wine opens with a subtle blend of black and Morello cherry on the nose, surrounded by slight smokiness. Ripeness is evident in the black cherry note and also manifests itself on the juicy but firm palate. A hint of chocolate and an edge of tar back the dark intensity of the fruit that is bedded in dense, ripe tannins. It's an elegant, full-bodied wine with gorgeous aroma and a promising future.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Volnay Clos de la Barre Premier Cru 2018
December 01, 2020 94 Points Wine Enthusiast

The lift and freshness of tart red cherry on this wine's nose has a rare hint of raspberry. The palate comes in with energetic, glossy flow. Freshness creates the drive and propels that depth of flavor.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Corton-Pougets Grand Cru 2018
December 01, 2020 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

A distinct whiff of Amarena fleets across this wine's nose before senses fill with the ripeness of black cherry. Cherry richness, sometimes with an overtone of chocolate, fills the generous but defined palate where velvety tannins are firm underneath their supple surface. They still crackle but reveal ample freshness and verve on the rich, muscular and toned body. Aromatic tenderness returns on the finish.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots Premier Cru 2018
December 01, 2020 94 Points Wine Enthusiast

A rounded note of vanilla surrounds hints of red cherry on the nose of this wine, while overtones of nutmeg shimmer. The palate also displays this creamy, rich seam of vanilla and baking spice, but it serves as a backdrop for the red-cherry fruit. Freshness frames it all while fine tannins brush gently.

Cakebread Cellars Dancing Bear Ranch 2017
December 01, 2020 93 Points Wine & Spirits

Stephanie Jacobs, who was promoted to winemaker in 2017, found a way to charm the fierce Howell Mountain tannins of this wine into a luscious texture that's completely enveloping. Along with the dark-plum flavors, there's a superripe note of yellow apricot and an earthy gingerroot spice to the acidity. Remarkably accessible for a Howell Mountain cabernet.
