Pinot Noir

300cl * 13.5% ABV * Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France

Created from 17 different parcels of grapes (each one named in beautiful calligraphy on the label), vinified separately and then blended together, before being matured in oak barrels for 18 months. Deeply coloured with dark berries on the nose. Fine-grained and silky tannins show the complexity and richness of Beaune's premier crus.

Enjoy it with boeuf bourgignon, roasted salmon, or mild creamy cheeses on crusty bread.

Serve at 16-17 degrees. Drinking window: 2024 - 2042+

"Opening in the glass with aromas of sweet berries, cherries and plums framed by a deft application of toasty new oak, the 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Célébration (Maison Louis Jadot) is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a fleshy core of fruit structured around rich tannins and succulent acids. It's a hearty, generous wine that should evolve nicely in the cellar. As usual, it's a blend of more than a dozen Beaune premiers crus." 92+ points, William Kelley, RobertParker.com (April 2021)

"This is definitely a child of its vintage as the black cherry, cassis and warm earth suffused nose is quite ripe yet not roasted or lacking in freshness. The opulently rich medium-bodied flavors possess a decidedly suave, round and velvet-textured texture with enough underlying acidity to avoid any sense of undue weight on the enveloping finish that begins to tighten up as it sits on the palate. This is the point where you begin to notice the underlying structure as the richness of the mid-palate essentially hides them. The 2018 Célébration is one of those wines that could easily be enjoyed now (serve it on the cooler side) or held for up to a decade with good results." 91 Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (April 2021)
