An intense, multi-faceted bouquet with vivacious black and red berry fruit, quite a noticeable marine/estuarine influence in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine acidity, taut and fresh with a harmonious, silky smooth finish. Lovely build in the mouth, this is a very well-crafted Clos-de-Bèze.

Neal Martin, Vinous.

A lovely wine, with spicy, expressive fruit that recalls wild strawberries, flowers and spice. The texture is ethereal and perfumed, yet the wine is not lacking in substance nor length. Although it seems approachable even now, there is definitely great ageing potential here. 

C.C., Decanter.

Excellent, wafting from the glass with aromas of orange rind, dark berries, cherries, licorice, black truffle and exotic spices. Full-bodied, velvety and multidimensional, it's layered and complete, with lively acids, ripe tannins and a long, resonant finish. This will be very long-lived. 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.

This is aromatically similar to the nose of the Chambertin though, as is almost always the case, there is a broader array of spice elements. The succulent and slightly finer larger-scaled flavors possess excellent vibrancy and focused power on the compact, complex and equally long and structured finale. Impressive.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Lovely dense mid purple, the nose has massive energy but not yet much detail. Then such an explosion of riotous fruit, joyously ripe pinot but still pure pinot. A little touch of menthol behind the ripe cherry notes with raspberry chaser. Amazing length. Very fine indeed. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
