New Year at Bristol w/Jadots (The Bristol, Chicago): Dark sweet dusty touch of herbal aromas & spicy. Chewy earthy dark fruits with sweet edge. Blackberry, toasty, dry extract. Bit lean and quite dusty. Very enjoyable as evening progressed with just a few rough edges. 93
Jadot Dinner with Friends (The Bristol - Chicago IL): Plenty of black fruit aromas with lots of density and intensity. just not forthcoming today. Similar in many ways to the Jadot 1999 CSJ from earlier tonight but with greater power and concentration. Easier to intellectually appreciate right now than easily enjoy, this had very good potential in another deacde+.
This needed air but eventually developed a gorgeous perfumed bouquet and a textural quality of deep silky smoothness that is really incredible. The fruit is somewhat muted at this point but the class and breed here is impeccable. Given this wine's history and pedigree, it should a be a fantastic Musigny down the road. 94+
Musigny Mass Murder (Plates): The most primary and richly fruited of the three Jadots, but exquisitely balanced. The sense of class is unmistakeable, dense but slender fruit wrapped in tannins of the finest cashmere.
