Maison louis Jadot is the secnod owner of the Clos Vougeot vineyard with a bit more than 2 hectares.

Weather: 2010 was a very fine vintage in Burgundy despite some challenging weather conditions. 2010 is a smaller production, down some 25% on normal levels. The weather began with a cold and wet winter and temperatures hitting -21C with some of the primary buds were burnt off. Around 650,000 cases of wine were lost overnight. Moving to the spring months and flowering season the weather was cool. In September, the savior month, the dry warm days helped produce a classic burgundy vintage. The bright weather continued until the normal harvest that began on 21st September.

Expert Reviews
16.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Dark crimson. A little severe. Chewy – very chewy – quite dry! Not convincing at the moment, as though the fruit has been sucked out of this wine. Malo finished relatively recently.”
94/100
Stephen Tanzer
“Medium red. Tight but pure nose offers redcurrant, red cherry, minerals, flowers, licorice and menthol, plus a high note of orange zest. On the palate, terrific inner-mouth energy gives sharp definition to the intense flavors of red berries, spices and menthol. Finishes with serious, firm tannins and an impression of weightlessness. For a taut wine that's built for a graceful evolution in bottle, this is remarkably pliant today.”
