Bourgogne Blanc, Clos de Loyse, Château des Jacques (Louis Jadot), Burgundy, France, 2018   

100% Chardonnay hand harvested with 8 months in oak (30% new) 

Single Vineyard Chardonnay from the Clos de Loyse vineyard at the Château des Jacques estate. This barrel fermented and barrel aged wine has a rich toasty and creamy nose while the palate is smooth and balanced with great elegance. The 2018 shows the marking of a great vintage with deep colour, complex aroma and fruit forward palate.

"Matured in barrels, which lends it more of a Burgundian accent, the 2018 Bourgogne Blanc Clos de Loyse offers up aromas of fresh-baked bread, golden orchard fruit, fresh apricot and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and charming, it's textural and enveloping, with ripe acids and a fleshy core of fruit."

89/100 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate, May 2020

Is the 2018 vintage the finest produced to date at the Château des Jacques under Jadot's management? Certainly, that was the question I (William Kelley) pondered as I tasted through these new releases, and Cyril Chirouze and his team deserve the warmest praise for what they have accomplished. When Jadot acquired this historic and extensive property in 1996, winemaking was reimagined with a Burgundian accent, introducing destemming, long macerations, new oak and extended élevage. To my palate, the wines' oak component was sometimes too prominent, even with bottle age; and that's why these 2018s stand out: they are simply the most seamlessly integrated wines I have tasted from the Château des Jacques between 1996 and the present. Deep, concentrated and elegantly muscular—after all, 2018 was a warm year—these are serious wines, built for the cellar, and I'm very optimistic indeed about their future. All the wines reviewed here come warmly recommended.
