Wine Spectator, March 2020

Fresh cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors hold court in this silky red. Firms up on the finish, yet stays balanced and lingers. Best from 2021 through 2033.

The 2017 Louis Jadot Beaune les Boucherottes is a Pinot Noir hailing from the esteemed Burgundy region in France, specifically from the Cote de Beaune sub-region, within the Beaune appellation and Les Boucherottes sub-appellation. This wine, produced by Louis Jadot, is a red varietal with an alcohol content of 13.5%, and it is sealed with a cork.

The wine exhibits a deep, clean profile with ripe dark-cherry flavors, underpinned by a violet scent, as noted by Wine & Spirits in their October 2020 review. They awarded it a 90-point score, highlighting the wine’s earthy tannins and an underlying note of fresh mushrooms. This complexity, they suggest, is currently somewhat concealed but hints at the wine's potential for aging. According to Wine & Spirits, "you could enjoy it as you would a young California pinot noir, though its structure will sustain the fruit as it ages."

Wine Spectator, in their March 2020 review, rated this wine slightly higher with a 91-point score. They described it as possessing "fresh cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors" which create a balanced and lingering finish. The review suggests that while the wine firms up on the finish, it remains well-balanced. Wine Spectator recommends that this wine is best enjoyed from 2021 through 2033, indicating its strong aging potential.

Overall, the 2017 Louis Jadot Beaune les Boucherottes Pinot Noir is characterized by its firm, yet juicy fruit flavors, and an earthy complexity that promises to evolve over time. With high praise from both Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator, this wine stands out as both enjoyable now and promising for future development.
