louis jadot (gagey) beaune 2010 bressandes blanc

Update 18.7.2012(16.7.2012)billn

I tasted this and a white Grèves (2006) with Jacques Lardière back in January – and was smitten. I placed my order right afterwards! Jadot’s reputation for whites has suffered due to oxidation, but it won’t make a difference to me because all of these bottles will be drunk over the next 3 years…

2010 Louis Jadot (Gagey), Beaune 1er Bressandes Blanc
Medium-pale, lemon-yellow. The nose is full and round, padded with spicy bread and soft, sweet oak notes – eventually a little citrus fruit joins the party – it’s a pastry delight. In the mouth this is oh-so direct; mineral and with very good acidity – you might, with hindsight, say the nose is redolent of Beaune – but never the flavour! Time in the decanter reduced the aromatic impact of the oak, but only a little. The palate also padding out very slightly – a little velvet on the handcuffs… Seriously great wine, which I suspect will be even better in 6-12 months.
Rebuy – Yes

    Dem Jadot white Beaunes are something special — even for someone such as I who is already a white Beaune fan.

      One could be picky (from a purist perspective) about the oak-content of the nose – but frankly it’s gorgeous 😉 Already added to my ‘top wines of the year’ panel…

      Not sure I will have time this week, but the Gagey 2010 Clos Blanc de Grèves is burning a whole in my bottle queue! 🙂

    Not related to this thread, but I’m unable to get a response form for the CdB Volnay-Caillerets note.

      I don’t know how/why – but I found a fix for that!
