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
