louis jadot (gagey) beaune 2010 bressandes blanc

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

    […] can either cloy or may still offer a wave of excitement if there is acidity and minerality too (like this). This wine is an okay wine, a wine that drinks easily, but it is also a wine that plays to a […]
