Vinous – 93/100
The 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, which comes from gnarly old centurion vines, has a harmonious, classically-styled bouquet at first, but after 10 minutes it turns volte-face, and the fruit bursts forward and budges the terroir expression out of the limelight (to my chagrin), flirting with a bit of VA. The palate is medium-bodied, with a pastille-like purity, tart redcurrant and cranberry fruit, notable linearity and impressive mineralité toward the finish. There is real intellect here —a superb Grand Cru, though it just loses some delineation with time. Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2050
Robert Parker – 95
One of the highlights of the range, the 2019 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) mingles aromas of sweet red berries with hints of raw cocoa, spices, licorice, loamy soil and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it’s velvety and concentrated, with considerable depth and mid-palate amplitude despite its elegant, seamless profile.
JancisRobinson.com – 16.5++
Cask sample. Transparent garnet. Briary, demanding nose. Marked acidity. Not very happy in itself at the moment. Acid dominates fruit and there is a medium charge of well-handled tannins. Not the sweet charm of most Jadot 2019s but without the real gravitas of their best grands crus.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2042
