Description & Technical Information
-
The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. For the past 150 years Louis Jadot has continued as one of the great names of Burgundy and has gained international reputation for its superb red and white Burgundy wines. Louis Jadot is not only one of the largest producers of estate Burgundies of the Cote d'Or, it is one of the most celebrated exporters of premium Burgundies, owning close to 140 acres of vineyards from 24 of the most prestigious sites in Burgundy.

The Clos des Ursules once belonged the convent of Saint-Ursule when the wall separating it from the rest of Les Vignes Franches was built. In 1826 it was the first vineyard that Louis Henry Denis Jadot bought and it has remained a Jadot family 'Monopole' ever since. It always produces the most generous and full-bodied of Beaunes with rich fruit, complexity, structure and depth, making it a Grand Cru in all but name.

Weather: 2012 vintage was born of a troubled growing season characterised by constrasting and unusual weather patterns. Winegrowers always have to keep a close eye on their vines, poised to treat when necessary. In 2012 they had to be guardian angels, ready at every moment to fight the fungal diseases, to defeat them and save the crop. Mother nature also stepped in to save the grapes from rot and the grapes that came into the wineries were of astonishing quality. Although the half of the crop was destroyed by hail, the quality was good and the red wines were a great success.

Tasting Note: Heady sweetness. Really exciting depths to this. Very serious. Racy, punchy and super clean and bracing on the finish. Impressively persistent. - Tasted by Jancis Robinson MW

Allen Meadows
“This is aromatically quite similar to the Boucherottes with perhaps just a bit more floral influence. The mouth feel is also comparable 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 robust, serious and old school finish. This will require ample patience.”

Antonio Galloni
“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.”

Stephen Tanzer
“Good saturated dark red. Aromas of cherry and redcurrant liqueur are perked up by stony minerality. Then surprisingly dry and backward but with good intensity and depth to its red fruit flavors. Finishes with big, dusty, serious tannins and a ripe note of roasted herbs. I may be underrating this.”

“Smudgy crimson. Heady sweetness. Really exciting depths to this. Very serious. Racy, punchy and super clean and bracing on the finish. Impressively persistent.”

“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!”
93+/100
John Gilman
“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”
