Winemaker's Notes

The picturesque city of Beaune has since the 14th century been the commercial pulse of the Burgundian wine trade. The Vignes Franches climat is situated in mid-slope near the southern end of the commune flanked by Les Boucherottes and Les Chouacheux, below it; and by the Clos des Mouches and Les Aigrots, above it. Its three parcels cover just over 24 acres. Well before the French Revolution this vineyard was a gift of the Province of Burgundy to a loyal group of subjects in gratitude for their service to the crown. The land was specially exempt from all duties; hence the name "franches," or free of taxes. Later, a portion of the Vignes Franches was donated to the convent of Saint-Ursule, a teaching order established in Beaune in 1626. This portion was later walled, and has since borne the name "Clos des Ursules."

The Clos des Ursules is a 6.8-acre enclave purchased by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1826, which has remained a solely-owned property of the Jadot family ever since. It is the jewel of the Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot portfolio, producing a wine of consistent excellence which, for the characteristic delicacy and suppleness of Vignes Franches, shows striking tannin and dimension. Full, firm and rich in ripe-berry flavors, its fine, slightly earthy bouquet and long, lush finish converge in a wine perfectly balancing elegance and power.

Critical Acclaim

"Palish medium red. Redcurrant, cherry, cinnamon and a minty nuance on the nose. Juicy and tightly wound, with good intensity and length. But this minerally, elegant wine is also a bit strict today."
