These are our last bottles of this excellent Beaune Premier Cru buy at this special pricing. This is an excellent example of this lovely vineyard and a top buy for back vintage burgundy. We have a limited amount remaining, and it is not one to miss for those looking for something drinking great without a big price tag. These will go quickly, so don't miss these last bottles!
The Clos des Couchereaux is a fantastic value, one of the best buys for Beaune Premier Cru from Jadot, and is lovely in 2017. Located right in the middle of the commune, Clos des Couchereaux is higher up on the slope than some of the other crus with southern exposure and calcareous clay soils. It is a site with excellent drainage and ripens very well and efficiently, giving it ample richness and excellent fruit while retaining good acidity. 2017 was an excellent vintage for this cru and is showing very well now with an incising array of red fruits, soil tones, red flowers, and a complimenting savoriness. This will continue to age and drink well over the next 5 years. Clos des Couchereaux is not a common Beaune 1er Cru, and only a limited amount is imported into the U.S. annually. Right now, we have some of the only bottles available, and at this special low pricing, which have just been released from the Domaine in perfect condition, has a CellarTracker Community score of 91.8 and is drinking closer to the higher end of the scores below.
Burghound 89-91 points! "Here too there is obvious restraint to the cool and understated nose of red raspberry, currant, floral and earth nuances. The mid-palate of the medium-bodied flavors isn't quite as dense but it's just as fine, all wrapped in a lilting and refreshing finish that reveals a touch of bitter cherry character."
Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy) 89-91 points! "The clos is high up on a very steep south-facing slope, poor soil, low yields, very limestone. A little more strength of colour and deeper fruit, with raspberries overlying the cherries. A little more solid in its fruit base, raspberry notes with some acidity, very good persistence. Tasted: November 2018."
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 89-91 points! "The 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Couchereaux (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) reveals a generous bouquet of smoky blackberries and plum, complemented by savory bass notes of loamy soil and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, quite ample and succulent with a plush, giving profile. It can't match the finesse or completeness of the Cras, but it's very true to the hearty, gourmand style of the site."
