Domaine des Héritiers (Maison Louis Jadot), Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 1995

Jadot Charlemagne 1995

Yellow-gold.  A bit hidden at first.  Then brooding and primordial: slightly autolytic yellow orchard fruit, malt, freesia, nut butter, stagnant sea air.  On the palate a pear and peach crème-anglaise drizzled with citrus oil.  Rewarding swell and mid-palate dimension.  Finishes long and mineral-saline.  The’90s Jadot blancs were more didactic than they are today: still consistent to Jadot’s rich, gregarious style with something extra tucked away for the future.  A very fine Corton Charlemagne.  Now – 2015.
