2020 Louis Jadot Monthelie Les Champs Fulliots PC
A glorious Premier Cru wine with famous neighbors (the vineyard borders both Volnay and Mersault) that overdelivers.
The vines have been planted in 1983, they are located next to the Volnay Clos des Chênes, lower on the hill. Same exposure: South-East. A very nice vine giving small berries.
Classy freshness and floral lift maximise Monthelie's undervalued potential. Charming and nuanced, this 1er Cru is the soul of red Burgundy for a very affordable price.
In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
What The Critics Say
90-92/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2020 Monthélie Les Champs Fulliot 1er Cru has a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, hints of loam and espresso emerging with time. It just needs to cohere during its barrel maturation. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine structure, beautifully integrated oak that lends this a real sheen towards the finish. This Monthelie comes highly recommended." Drink 2023 - 2036
89-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A perfumed and very pretty nose freely reveals its aromatic profile of dark raspberry, black pinot and violet. There is slightly better volume to the delicious and palate coating medium-bodied flavors that display focused power on the dusty, youthfully austere and serious finale. At least some patience would be beneficial." Drink 2028+
