Buy Louis Jadot Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Heritiers
Vinous 94 points - Pale lemon-yellow. Pungent aromas of pineapple, lavender, white pepper, stone and menthol. Dense, supple and sweet but with terrific stony cut to its citrus, pineapple and fresh herb flavors. Penetrating but not at all hard. The very firmly structured finish shows excellent limey persistence and lift. ”The 2011s have been a pleasant surprise,” noted Barnier. ”They have more life than we expected.” 94+ Points  (Sep 2013)

Wine Advocate 90 points - Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Louis Jadot has a more open and generous bouquet than Louis Latour’s, bridled with light limestone and green apple scents, touches of patisserie in the background originating from the oak that is in synch with the fruit profile. The palate is clean and fresh with a vibrant thread of acidity, good tension with citrus lemon and fresh lime. It finishes with a linear, poised finish that is as fresh as a daisy.  (Nov 2014)

Wine Spectator 92 points - The flavors of apple, lemon and spice seem straightforward, but this white sneaks up on you, building in intensity to a long finish. The oak is discreet, showing a balanced mix of fruit and spice notes in the aftertaste. Drink now through 2021.—B.S. (Mar 19 2014)

Wine maker notes
Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot is proprietor of an exceptional, 4.94-acre parcel of vines adjacent to Les Pougets exposed directly to the south. Purchased in 1914, this vineyard yields a Corton-Charlemagne for which Jadot is famous, considered to be the benchmark by by which Corton-Charlemagne is judged. A wine of rare textural elegance and depth, its aristocratic bouquet and luscious full-fruit complexity are completed by discreet nuances of honey, cinnamon and oak, culminating in an intense, lasting finish.
