Beaune 1er Cru
Now, we know what you're thinking. 2015 is no time at all for a burgundy to age, and this magnum will surely need prolonged time in the cellar. Ordinarily, we'd agree with you, but the Louis Jadot vineyard only releases wine in marquee years. This Celebration bottle - which is Jadot-speak for an anniversary, with this vintage marking 156 years of astonishing wine - simply demands attention. The first sip you take will be through your nose, as the delightful aroma of this red is a real treat for the sense. Thankfully the flavour matches up to these first impressions, with a depth that will delight any connoisseur. Rich and radiant, the Beaune 1er Cru demonstrates that age is just a number.
WHAT IT GOES WITH
The smooth drinkability of this wine ensures that it’s a great companion for any meal. Soft cheese is also a natural bedfellow of the Beaune 1er Cru, though there’s really no need to pair anything at all. Such is the complexity of this young vintage that it remains luxurious when sipped alone.
