Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

This vineyard is one of the oldest owned by Louis Jadot since the XIXth century. It is located in the very heart of the appellation (next to the Corton Pougets) which then expanded after 1966. This vineyard is ideally South oriented.
This has beautiful purity with striking aromas of lemons and limes, as well as fresh yellow grapefruit and a strong, wet-stone edge. The palate has immense power with precision and focus, delivering a long and regal finish with such power and length. Three hectares in Corton with 1.8 planted to white grapes. Try from 2022.—James Suckling
The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, displaying a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk and a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, tensile and tight-knit, with chewy structuring dry extract, tangy acids and a long, grippy finish. This is built for the cellar and will be well worth seeking out.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Tasting note: A classic nose of green apple, citrus peel, white fruit and wet stone introduces racy, ultra-intense and almost aggressively mineral-driven flavors that don't quite possess the sheer weight and power of the Montrachet on the still impressively complex and lingering finish. This too is quite firm and will need every bit of 12 to 15 years to reveal its full, and considerable, potential.—Allen Meadows, Burghound
