Just a short not to say that the Spring 2010 Burgundy Report (already the 8th!) will be up-and-running tomorrow. Well in excess of 300 notes from real bottles, interspersed with stunning (i.e. not written by me!) articles – coming soon! 🙂
I have only one complaint related to this wine – why do Jadot say Theurons, when almost everybody-else say Teurons?! (walks away with Gallic shrug…)
1999 Louis Jadot, Beaune 1er Les Theurons
Medium, medium-plus colour – and quite young looking colour at that! The nose has minerality, tar and eventually candied red berries. Real intensity and mouth-watering acidity define the wine today, yet there is a hint of fat before the acidity takes over and dissuades you from chewing to inspect the tannin! Long, mineral flavours with and edge of sweetness. Drinkable but très young!
Rebuy – Yes

The Theurons idiosyncrasy has hit me before on the d’Ardhuy web page for their Petit Clos Blanc des Theurons which is the spelling used on the header of the fact sheet but the actual bottle labels use Teurons..go figure
It was Carel’s birthday yesterday – so I can take the gloves off today and ‘ask’ him about that one 😉
