Beaune 1er Cru, Celebration Louis Jadot - 2018
From the moment this wine and uncorked and the nose is treated to a rich aroma of plums, cherries, and sweet berries - tempered by a hint of toasted oak - it's clear that Louis Jadot's 2018 vintage is something special. Perfectly mature for enjoying now, especially when lightly chilled, though equally suitable for storage, this Burgandy blends a deep, full body with a layered selection of fruity taste sensations sure to tickle the palate, all balanced by an appealing acidity and rich tannins. The overall sensation is one of liquid velvet, while the finish lingers and tightens long after the glass has been drained.
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.
