The 2012 Beaune Clos des Ursules is the most lifted and refined of the Beaune 1er Crus from Jadot. Sweet raspberries, tobacco, freshly cut flowers, mint and cinnamon meld together gracefully in the glass. The Ursules is distinguished from the other Beaunes by its silky tannins and fabulous length. There is plenty of richness in the glass, but without the excess weight or extraction found in some of the other wines. (AG)
The 2012 Clos des Ursules is another superb bottle in the making, with the depth and purity of the vintage very much in evidence in its superb bouquet of cassis, black cherries, a touch of plumminess, a very complex base of soil tones, cocoa and a gentle base of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows superb mid-palate depth, with a fine chassis of ripe, well-integrated tannins, excellent focus and grip and a long, nascently complex finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2023-2060) 93+
The 2012 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules is one of their premier holdings with a propensity to age with class. It has a fragrant, more floral bouquet with fine delineation – perhaps more feminine than the other Beaune premier crus. The palate is ripe and generous on the entry. This has good substance and breeding, the quality of the terroir really coming through on the persuasive finish that lingers long in the mouth. This Clos des Ursules is brimming over with confidence and class. Bravo! (NM)
A discreet but not invisible application of wood sets off elegant and pretty aromas of menthol, spice, earth and a lovely array of mostly red and blue Pinot fruit scents. The mouth feel is also quite pretty because while there is excellent volume and intensity, the texture of the medium-bodied flavors is notably refined, all wrapped in a moderately austere, concentrated and driving finish. This is an interesting exercise in contrasts with a polished mid-palate juxtaposing against a moderately structured finish. This will require at least some patience.
Medium red. Aromas of red cherry, raspberry, licorice, menthol and spices, plus an element of medicinal herbs that emerged with air. Juicy, bright and nicely delineated, with youthfully clenched black cherry fruit complicated by herbs and menthol. No shortage of power here. The substantial dusty tannins call for several years of aging. (ST-Vinous)
