Flight 1 - Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles (4 notes)

The younger two wines were a clear step up, and lived up to Grand Cru expectations.

White
2000 Louis Jadot Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
88 points
The nose here is initially fairly oxidized but does freshen up a bit with 30-40 minutes in the glass. Better on the palate with mature white fruits and mineral. Decent freshness. Good, but clearly not up to Chevalier standards. This bottle is on the downslope.
White
2003 Louis Jadot Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
90 points
This defies what you'd expect from 2003. Good crisp palate with rich fruit, but not overdone at all, and with plenty of fresh acids. Moderate floral and spice notes add interest. Probably one to drink sooner than later.
White
2005 Louis Jadot Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
93 points
A real step up here as I think we've caught this in a peak window. Riper fruit but plenty of fresh, energetic acids throughout. Good mineral, floral and spice accents. Very good.
White
2009 Louis Jadot Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
95 points
I liked this much better than a bottle tasted almost exactly a year ago with the same company. Excellent combo of richness and density with freshness and tension. Bright floral notes with lots of spice. Long, structured finish.

Flight 2 - Bonnes Mares (4 notes)

Served blind, I initially thought this was a vertical given a striking similarity in the wines (and a hint from the source of a vertical) but second guessed that this was a Chambolle horizontal. A testament to these wines' youthfulness and ageability.

Horribly corked.
Red
1997 Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru
96 points
Jadot's 1997s are magical. Amazing aromatics of mature black cherry, clay, spice with the beginnings of mushroom and earth tones. The palate has good concentration and richness. Layered with so much intense flavor. WOTN.
Red
1995 Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru
91 points
Lots of powerful black cherry with earth tones and some spice. This is still fairly angular and un-integrated. Lots of stuffing that is in proportion, so you'd think it will come together with more time.
Red
1988 Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru
93 points
Such an interesting wine. In a flight of 97/95/88 Jadot Bonnes Mares, this wine evolved and improved the most in the glass. Once it opened up, it had terrific complexity and density. Not quite as exciting as the 97 but more integrated than the 95. Good now, but seems like it still needs time to peak.
