Domaine Louis Jadot, Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 1998

Jadot Clos Vougeot 1998 #1

Fifteen years on tasting.

Fullish ruby.  A perfume of plump, summer black berries, mossy soil, spent autumn leaf and well-hung game.  Plenty of wine here: gutsy middle, furry tannins, structured with good grip.  Peaty at the end, with a corporeal minerality.  Typical of Jadot’s Clos de Vougeot, its vines situated lower on the slope: sturdy, rich and firm, it has grand cru amplitude but lacks the elegance of the very best.  Now – 2020.
