This is the 4th release of the Jadot’s Beaune 1er Cru 150th Anniversary now renamed to the Celebration moniker . This 2018 version is sumptuous and already drinking nicely. All of the four editions tend to drink earlier than their single vineyard bottlings.

I remember tasting the first release, the excellent 2009, which was followed by 2012, 2015 and now the 2018. It is an assemblage of numerous Beaune climats that Jadot owns, it has always been an incredibly expressive and flat-out delicious Pinot to be enjoyed with friends and relatives at a celebratory dinner

This special cuvée is made only in great years, and 2018 while a hot vintage, comes up as surprisingly fresh and lively and very fine in the Beaune region. It comes in its own designer label, separate from the customary Jadot labels. Giving the frost turmoil that happened earlier this year that destroyed a lot of vineyards all over Europe (including Burgundy), the prices of existing Burgundies on the market or upcoming are all going to increase so this a relative bargain and is actually cheaper than the last 2015 release. Burgundy lovers take notice!
