Very pure and harmonious on the nose with plush black cherry and cassis fruit, well-integrated oak and a floral aspect that becomes more prominent with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh, lightly spiced with quite a vivacious, mineral-driven finish that retains superb definition. This is very impressive and bloomin’ delicious (already!) 

Neal Martin, Vinous.

The wine is massive, with grippy tannins, full body and an interminable finish. 'A great vintage to taste in 20 years,' according to winemaker Frédéric Barnier. The fruit character is black plum and cassis, with a firm, mineral and earthy element. 

C.C., Decanter.

A wine with huge potential. Unwinding in the glass with notes of raspberries, red cherries, vanilla pod, exotic spices and raw cocoa, it's full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with an immensely concentrated core, powdery tannins and a tightly wound profile. The 2020 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, delivering concentrated, flavorful wines. In 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards. 

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Very generous wood and menthol nuances still allow the liqueur-like aromas of red currant, violet and range of spice elements to be appreciated. There is first-rate power and punch to the moderately dense and beautifully textured flavors that display superb length on the sappy finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Don't Miss!

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Brisk deep purple, this is a solid multi-textured wine with depth of flavour and a certain darkness to it but it remains superbly balanced, tannins and acidity present but behaving, and with a fine long aftertaste. Dark raspberry, mulberry without the over richness, dark plums too." 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.

Soaring with freshness, tiny and crunchy red berries meld with sweet spices on the nose and lead to a slightly brawny, full-bodied palate. This is gloriously juicy and textured and gleams with youthful muscle. Perky acidity, minty freshness and a light saltiness lift the finely-honed, long finish.
