Winemaker Notes

The Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, with a high number of Premiers Crus (36) due to the ideal incline of the majority of these vineyards. The Beaune 1er Cru «Clos des Ursules» is a closed-off portion of the Beaune 1er Cru «Vignes Franches». It was purchased in 1826 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot and has remained a solely owned property of the Jadot family.

Beaune Premier Cru "Clos des Ursules" is a full, firm and rich wine. It is fine, with a slightly earthy bouquet and long, lush finish, converge in a wine which perfectly balances elegance and power. It will develop in the bottle for 10 to 15 years.

It works harmoniously with delicate meat dishes as well as most cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules has a refined bouquet, probably the most mineral driven of the three Beaune premier crus under the "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot" label. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, an insistent grip in the mouth, more black fruit surfacing toward the structured, saline, marine-influenced finish. Excellent.
Range: 91-93

Decanter
The Clos des Ursules is excellent in 2016, its pretty bouquet of red and black cherry, orange rind, rich soil and a top note of violets introducing a supple, full-bodied and fine-grained wine with a deep core of fruit, nicely integrated tannins and lovely energy. Drinking Window 2022 - 2040
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Captivating aromas of violet, black currant and black cherry are the hallmarks of this elegant red. Intense, featuring saturated flavors driven by vibrant acidity and embedded in the matrix of tannins. Shows excellent length, with a mineral accent. Best from 2022 through 2040.
BH 91
Burghound.com
Much more discreet though not invisible wood is present on the essence of red cherry, plum and earth-inflected aromas. Once again there is fine mid-palate density to the sappy and extract-rich medium-bodied flavors that possess a taut muscularity that really comes up on the robust and very firm finish that is a bit chewy if not actually tough. While I doubt that this will ultimately be as refined as it usually is with age, it should still be very good and possibly even excellent.
Range: 89-91

Cote de Beaune

A classic source of exceptional Chardonnay as well as Pinot noir, the Côte de Beaune makes up the southern half of the Côte d’Or. Its principal wine-producing villages are Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.

The area is named for its own important town of Beaune, which is essentially the center of the Burgundy wine business and where many negociants center their work. Hospices de Beaune, the annual wine auction, is based here as well.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
