Domaine Louis Jadot, Le Musigny Grand Cru 1985

Jadot Musigny 1985 #5

Jadot Musigny #6

A luminous garnet red color with touches of mahogany, faded pink-orange rim.  Profound, hypnotic, endlessly suggestive nose: iron-rich reds, peony, epices, morel, horseradish, darjeeling oolong, sweaty saddle leather.  A statuesque, silken texture, at once mighty and mystic: rose hips, morello cherry, forest red raspberry in deep green shade.  A regal chassis of fruit, acidity and minerality.  Tertiary, umami finish of grandiose dimension.  An innate command on display and a thrilling wine, the depths of which can be measured in fathoms.  A great ’85.  Now – 2025+.
