New Release – Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Celebration 2015, 6×75, £165, 93+ Points

Louis Jadot

Burgundy 2015 has received candescent reports from Allen Meadows and Neal Martin. Meadows opines that 2015 is ‘a genuinely great vintage and great from top to bottom’. The Wine Advocate’s Neal Martin enthusiastically implores collectors to ‘make no mistake, 2015 Burgundy is a great vintage’. It comes as no surprise, that 2015 Jadot’s Beaune 1er Cru Celebration cuvee has been created, this being the third incarnation in the history of Jadot; rather a lovely event. It is only made when they believe it will be exceptional, for it is the progeny of their best 1er Cru Beaune vineyards and a marquee cuvee.

The 2015 is their finest ever, surpassing the 2009, which due to its strong demand, trades today for £270 per case of six. The 2015 has just been awarded 93+ points from Antonio Galloni who says ‘The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Celebration is a rich, radiant wine. Sumptuous and expansive on the palate, the 2015 possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous depth… The combination of 19 climats results in a Beaune of unusual complexity and pedigree,’ The 2015 was bottled late last year and has been shipped direct from the Estate. It is priced today at £165 per case of six, an excellent offering and superb value for a wine of this nuance and from the staggering 2015.

Maison Louis Jadot is one of the biggest owners and domains in Burgundy. They produce the full plethora of wines, including most of the leading Grand Cru plots. This is an advantage as their economies of scale and long history of exceptional winemaking mean that their best plots often produce spectacular wines at more attractive prices than some of the more specialist domaines. This is true in Beaune, where they boast some of the finest 1er Cru plots. Jadot’s Beaune 1er Cru Celebration cuvee has been a sell-out wine in the last two releases and the 2015 is a notch up. This will benefit from a few years in bottle and is capable of ageing for more than a decade. That said, it would also drink well this year, if you felt inclined to open one, the 2015 vintage being so balanced and with such purity of fruit.

Please note that along with the normal bottles, we have availability of larger formats and this special cuvee is a perfect wine to drink from party bottles.
