Wine tasting notes

Beaune-Theurons is generally considered to be a quintessential Premier Cru, one of the dozen or so finest in the commune. It unites an aromatic bouquet, full body and ample structure with generous fruit flavours and an unusual delicacy on the palate, culminating in a lingering finish. Beaune Theurons is a balanced wine, not too rich but delicate and with very good tannins.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2005)89 to 91 pts

Wine Advocate # 171. Jun 2007. Reviewer : David Schildknecht. Jadot?s 2005 Beaune Theurons exhibits pure black cherry with sage and smoky bacon on the nose. Loaded with sap and juicy fruit character in the mouth, it juxtaposes tart freshness with creamy texture. Sage, resin, black cherry and a hint of maple syrup mark a savory finish that displays fascinating salty-sweet and fruit-smoked meat oscillation. This vigorous and tightly-concentrated wine should reward at least 5-7 years of cellaring.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2010)88 to 90 pts

Good full medium red. Reticent aromas of raspberry liqueur and menthol. Fat and sweet but quite closed, with a youthfully medicinal quality dominating today. Finishes with strong saline earth tones and substantial dusty tannins.

Smudgy, sweet, spicy fruit suggests you could drink this relatively early. Clean, brisk start.

Wine Spectator (2009)91 pts

Bright and succulent, with a touch of oak lending spice accents to the candied cherry core. An elegant, lacy red, yet with intensity. Feels like it's holding something back. Best from 2015 through 2027

Wine Enthusiast (2010)91 pts

Perfumed, rich yet soft, this is opulent Beaune at its best. It has acidity and a touch of tannin, but it's the broad, ripe red-fruit flavors that dominate, which gives juiciness and vitality to this wine that will age for several years.
