Maison Louis Jadot 2016 Volnay "Clos des Chenes" 1er Cru 750ml
Bright, full red. Ripe if somewhat medicinal aromas of raspberry and cherry. Dense, sappy and concentrated, with a strong impression of saline extract to the red fruit flavors. The tannins are serious but nicely supported by the wine's material. Serious hail losses here held production to just 15 hectoliters per hectare in 2013, but this is a perfect example of a Côte de Beaune wine that should reward patience.
Score: (89-91) --Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Nov 2014
