Leading connoisseurs collect Jadot’s top bottling whites and reds because they are such consistent thrillers, delivering balanced, bold flavors that are enjoyable (after decanting) and age-worthy. At Porthos, we have hand-selected these two bottlings since both offer flashy fruit from celebrated vintages. As Burghound noted, “2018 is an exceptional vintage in virtually every respect” and Parker declared the 2017 “reds are supple, charming and expressive.”
Louis Jadot is highly regarded as Burgundy’s flashiest and most luxurious Domaine. With its exceptional winemaker, first-class vineyard holdings, ageability, and long illustrious history, Louis Jadot is at the top of many collectors’ bucket lists.
Charmes-Chambertin: “The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot) displays notes of sweet red fruits, grilled meats and espresso roast. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with a sweet, fleshy core of fruit and satiny tannins. The Charmes has turned out very well this year and will make friends in its youth.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Clos St. Jacques: “This wine opens with a subtle blend of black and Morello cherry on the nose, surrounded by a 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. Drink 2025-2040.” - Wine Enthusiast
