2010 Jadot Corton Pougets Grand Cru…$82.99
The 2010 Corton Pougets is a beautifully focused wine laced with sweet red cherries, raspberries, flowers, mint and crushed rocks. The Pougets is all about nuance, detail and clarity. It comes across as quite elegant, but there is an understated weight that fleshes out on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030

2010 Jadot Corton Charlamagne Grand Cru…$139.99
Brilliant pale yellow. Precise, penetrating aromas of green melon, ginger, quinine and dusty stone. Silky on entry, then sappy and deep in the middle, with a powerful crushed stone character and strong limey acidity combining to give the wine uncanny energy. This is almost painful today. This extremely dense, long wine may ultimately surpass Jadot's Chevalier-Montrachet.

2010 Jadot Batard Montrachet Grand Cru….$277.99
Jadot’s 2010 Batard-Montrachet, from the Puligny side, boasts stunning minerality. Intense notes of crushed rocks and slate caress the palate. The Batard is all nuance and class. There is a level of pure delineation and crystalline definition here that is simply striking. Today the aromas and flavors are quite bright, but the wine should fill out nicely and take on richer tones as it ages. Over the time I followed it, the Batard opened up beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2020+.

2010 Jadot Gevery Chambertin Clos St Jacques…. $134.99
The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-Saint-Jacques is all about finesse and seamless beauty. A refined, aristocratic Burgundy, the Clos Saint-Jacques is endowed with the silkiest of tannins and flat-out beauty from start to finish. The wine fleshes out on the palate with layers of red berries, flowers and licorice that gain volume and breadth with time in the glass. There is plenty of brightness and minerality to lend a gorgeous element of vibrancy on the close. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

2010 Jadot Puligny Montrachet les Folatieres….$81.99
The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres is pure class and elegance. Floral aromatics lead to beautifully sculpted, delineated fruit in this impeccable, nuanced Folatieres. The 2010 impresses for its centered, poised personality and terrific overall balance. Today, the 2010 is quite closed, but it should emerge more fully over time, although it is likely to remain feminine. I look forward to checking in the 2010 in another year or two. Note: This is the Heritiers de Louis Jadot bottling that is sold in the US. There is also a Maison Jadot bottling that I did not taste. Anticipated maturity: 2015+.

2010 Jadot Beaune Clos de Ursules....$59.99
The 2010 Beaune Clos des Ursules is dark, rich and gorgeous. Black cherries, plums and spices take shape beautifully in the glass, while the wine’s structure appears later. The balance of fruit, structure and acidity is so seamless that nothing really stands out here. The Ursules needs a few years in bottle to come together, but it is shaping up to be a gem. The Clos des Ursules shut down fairly quickly in the glass, suggesting it may be a number of years before the wine becomes truly expressive. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.

2010 Jadot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru...$134.99
The 2010 Clos Vougeot bursts onto the palate with a rush of dark red fruit. This is another wine that had a very slow malolactic fermentation (at the time of this tasting there was a portion of the wine still finishing its malo). The 2010 needs time to find its balance but the raw materials are superb. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

2010 Jadot Puligny Montrachet Referts...$68.99
2010 Jadot Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot...$69.99
In contrast, Jadot’s 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de La Chapelle, from deeper soils on the back of the Abbaye de Morgeot, possesses gorgeous depth, but it is also tightly wound and inward. Cool, saline notes dominate today, but there is more than enough fruit to allow the 2010 to develop beautifully in bottle over the coming years. The huge, textured finish leaves a lasting impression. It would be fascinating to taste both of the Jadot wines from the Abbaye de Morgeot in ten years’ time. Anticipated maturity: 2015+.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
2010 Jadot Meursault Perrieres...$95.99
A cool, inward and beautifully precise wine, the 2010 Meursault Perrieres is also the least expressive of these Meursault premier crus. Intense layers of minerality frame the fruit in this impeccable, pedigreed Perrieres. There is no question the 2010 needs time, but how much? Today, it is super-impressive. Stylistically, it melds together the intense fruit of the Charmes with the minerality of Genevrieres. The endless finish is simply breathtaking in its beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2015+.

2010 Jadot Beaune Bressandes...$41.99
Tasting note: Here too there is very gentle wood sitting atop the slightly curious nose that is mildly sauvage in character with an earthy and somewhat herbal nose that also evidences hints of pear and citrus. There is good volume and richness to the relatively full but refined flavors that display a subtle minerality on the solidly persistent finish.

2010 Jadot Chassagne Montrachet La Romanee...$96.99
"There is nothing obvious about the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet La Romanee; rather this is a wine that stands out for its superb textural finesse and pure elegance. The 2010 is a decidedly weightless, pure Burgundy endowed with stunning inner perfume and fabulous overall balance. Stylistically, it is the polar opposite of the Cailleret. Today, my sense is that the 2010 will age beautifully, but time will tell. In 2010, the La Romanee is all about finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2015+."
