Charred meat black currant and wet stone characterize the bouquet of Jadot's 2005 Clos Vougeot. Savory salty brightly-fruited and invigoratingly juicy on the palate this displays more energy and acidity than I would have expected from the appellation. For all of the clarity and juiciness of this wine's fruit grilled meat and stony earthiness combined with the emergence of formidable tannins and subtle but persistent cyanic and iodine notes to turn its formidably long finish somewhat austere. But this is going to result in an exciting rendition of its terroir if left in the dark for at least 6-8 years. Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these â_" particularly from the Cote de Beaune â_" displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites. A brief July rain that reached the Cote de Nuits but not the Cote de Beaune was critical he asserts and all of Jadot's vines in the northern Cote were picked before the harvest in the south commenced. (Wines from the Domaine Louis Jadot Domaine Heritiers Louis Jadot or Domaine Gagey have been identified with a letter â_oDâ__ in their listings.)Also recommended: 2005 Cote de Nuits-Villages Le Vaucrain ($25.00;86+?) 2005 Santenay Clos de Malte ($27.00; 85-87) 2005 Savigny-les-Beaune Aux Guettes (84-86+?) 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges ($37.00; 85-87+?) 2005 Chambolle-Musigny ($50.00; 85-87+?).Importer: Kobrand Inc.

At once powerful and juicy with lovely floral perfume and lift in the mouth along with a note of smoky oak. Not a particularly fleshy wine but focused and fine. Youthfully tight grand cru with the firm structure for long evolution in bottle.
