    Default TN: 99 Jadot Beaune

    Last night I had a quiet dinner on patio alone. Rubbed a cornish hen
    with a Ming Tsai tea/chile/5spice blend (a gift that Betsy hadn't
    used), put in on grill with some corn, squash, and figs. Wine was the
    1999 Jadot "Bressandes" Beaune 1er. Very light at first, high acids,
    almost dilute. Put on some weight in glass, filled out. Fairly tart
    red fruit, mostly cherries and raspberries. Nice with the food, and
    held well for entire evening. Light but persistent tannins, good
    acids. Some faint earth and meat notes. Pleasant, but a bit of a
    disappointment, I had some good expectations and this never really
    grabbed me. Lacked exubernace. I had thought a lesser '99 1er might be
    drinking well now. Maybe it's just awkward phase, but my only one, so
    I'll never know! B/B-

    Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
    wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
    drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
    promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.*

    I've never been a fan of Jadot's Beaune's. They always seem a bit
    light a dilute regardless of vintage or vineyard. Maybe a stylistic
    issue for me but I like a little more heft in a 1er.

    Well, for heft from a Jadot Beaune you probably need to look at the
    Ursules or Greves. But I generally like the lesser/smaller estate
    bottled 1ers like Bressandes, Bocherots, Chouchereaux, Chouachoux (I
    know I spelled those wrong), etc. at least in better vintages like
    '99, '02, '05.
