"The 2011 Louis Jadot Clos de Bèze is very, very close in quality to the brilliant 2010 that I tasted last year. The nose is deep, stunning and quite reserved in profile, offering up scents of black cherries, cassis, espresso, black minerality, herbs, grilled meat and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and totally suave, with superb mid-palate depth, ripe and classy tannins and outstanding length and grip on the nascently complex and aristocratic finish. A magical wine in the making and another 2011 Jadot wine I would love to be around to sample next to its 2010 counterpart when the two are fully mature! 2025-2100."
