There is plenty of menthol on the essence of red cherry and plum-suffused nose. The fullbodied but supple medium-bodied flavors possess outstanding richness along with excellent concentration that displays terrific depth and length on the built-to-age finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is better than it usually is and in particular more complex. (90-93)/2027+
The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Les Boucherottes has a subtle bouquet that comes across more introspective than the 2015 Beaune Clos des Couchereaux, the fruit darker but equally well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannin - plenty of tart red cherry fruit, quite saline in the mouth leading to an understated but very focused finish. This is another top-notch Beaune Premier Cru from Louis Jadot. The wines under the "Héritiers des Louis Jadot" represent crus whereby the vines have historically belonged to the Jadot family. See also Maison Louis Jadot, Domaine Gagey etc.
The Boucherottes is the most brooding and soil-driven of the flight of Beaune premier crus from Jadot, located on the Pommard side of the appellation below Clos des Mouches. Aromas of dark fruit, grilled venison and woodsmoke lead into a sapid, ample palate which retains good energy and precision through the finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2040
(Boucherottes is in the extremely southern part of Beaune, below Clos des Mouches): Bright, dark red. Complex scents of oak, mint and soil add interest to the raspberry and red cherry fruit aromas. Rich and sweet on the palate, but with good licorice and menthol lift; lovely savory wine with serious palate presence. Finishes classically dry and long, with the tannins spreading out to saturate the palate
