Tasting Notes for Musigny - Jadot, Louis, 1995:
Quite dark-colored, Jadot's Musigny reveals touches of cinnamon and blackberries in its intensely floral nose. On the palate, this full-bodied, velvety-textured, powerful wine explodes with copious quantities of roasted herbs, coffee, blackberries and violets and has an admirable finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012.
This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy in Washington, D.C. in April. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided.
Overall, 1995 is another in a string of successful vintages for Jadot. If there is one negociant house consumers can feel comfortable buying blindly, vintage to vintage, it is Jadot. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes for Chapelle Chambertin - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This bright, medium-to-dark ruby/purple-colored wine is extraordinary. Intense aromas of cassis, blackberries, and fresh herbs all covered in luscious milk chocolate give way to this wine's full-bodied, rich, and dense personality. Expressive layers of sweet dark fruits, earth, spices, as well as roasted and grilled herbs can be found in this complex, structured, and broad wine. Its formidably long and expansive finish also possesses copious yet supple tannins. Wow! Readers who have never had a glorious Chapelle are well-advised to scour their favorite wine shops for this gem. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes for Clos Vougeot - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This saturated and dark colored wine, with its extraordinarily spicy nose of sweet red and black fruits, sent me soaring. This massive, intense, broad-shouldered, masculine, structured, and chewy wine is crammed with super-ripe, rich, and layered blackberries, cassis, licorice, earth, and Asian spices. As if that were not enough, its dense fruit comes roaring back after expectoration, lingering on the palate for nearly a minute. This is an extraordinary Clos Vougeot! Projected maturity: 2006-2014. Bravo! to Jacques Lardiere and Pierre-Henri Gagey. Robert Parker Wine Advocate
