2021 Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir

2021 Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir

One of our wine goals for 2023 is to further explore the wines of Burgundy, both red and white. So when we see a new bottle at the Costco stores near us, we’re going to buy it and review. Feel free to take this journey alongside us.

This base level Bourgogne from a big name producer, Louis Jadot, seemed like a perfect place to start. We have previously reviewed their Macon-Villages Chardonnay, Pouilly-Fuisse, and Chablis, all of which we found at Costco in the $15-$25 range, and thoroughly enjoyed.

Costco’s price of $16.99 is just average and about what you will find this bottle selling for at other outlets, including Total Wine.

Give the wine a good decant to bring it to life, but once you do, there’s a lot to like in this rather young and inexpensive (as far as Burgundy goes) bottle.

In the glass the wine is a pale ruby with subtle red fruit and herbs on the nose; it is medium in body; flavors of cherry and raspberry; good acidity and a nice finish. This is a very good showing for a base level Burgundy.

Not really a bottle that will knock anyone’s socks off, or impress the wine snob, but for the money this is a very drinkable, rather elegant choice. Rating: 88 points
