#43 James Suckling Top 100 Wines of France 2022

What a sensual nose of Amalfi lemon, ripe mirabelle and apricot this Corton-Charlemagne has! Gigantic fruit and almost as much structure behind it, the fine tannins underlining all this beautifully. Mouthwateringly fresh acidity and a saline touch that really ignites this at the very long, brilliant finish. From the south side of the hill of Corton. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.—James Suckling

An elegant and exceptionally pretty nose combines plenty of floral elements with those of Granny Smith apples, mineral reduction, freshly squeezed citrus and an admirably subtle hint of oak. The succulent, concentrated and, unusually for a young Corton-Charlemagne, seductive big-bodied flavors exude an evident stoniness on the palate staining, citrusy, bone-dry and hugely long finish that really fans out as it sits in the mouth. I very much like the balance and this beauty should also age effortlessly. Sweet Spot. Allen Meadows, Burghound

The 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is broad and muscular, unfurling in the glass with aromas of lime cordial, orange zest, white flowers and pastry cream. Full-bodied, rich and textural, it's a thick, fleshy wine with terrific concentration and tangy balancing acids. The 2020 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, delivering concentrated, flavorful wines with alcohol levels between 13.3% and 13.7% and with low pHs. Winemaker Frédéric Barnier told me that efforts were made to pick earlier in the day, and that fruit waiting to be processed was kept fresh in a special cold room. In the cellar, foudres and 500-liter barrels now complement classic 228-liter pièces, a further evolution adapting to warmer, riper vintages. But aside from the quality of the 2020s and these technical developments, described in more detail in the accompanying tasting notes, there's other noteworthy news too: in 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

The 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a lifted, liquorice-tinged bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass (and has not problem following on from Jadot’s Montrachet!) The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the crisp citrus fruit laced with orange pith, stem ginger and white pepper. There is real cohesion and persistence on the finish - just an excellent Corton-Charlemagne. Closure: Diam—Neal Martin, Vinous Media
