94 POINTS— James Suckling
Wonderful nose of sour cherries that leaps out at you. Concentrated and sleek with plenty of fine tannins and a lot of energy, this powers across the palate. Dense and complex finish with some lovely spice.
92-94 POINTS - Wine Advocate
Once again one of the highlights of the range, the 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode (Domaine Louis Jadot) wafts from the glass with notes of cassis, plums, dark chocolate, loamy soil and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's elegantly muscular, with fine depth and lively acids.

The commune of Savigny-lès-Beaune is in the north of the Côte de Beaune and produces 90% red wines. La Dominode has an eastern exposure and lies at the southern end of the commune on gravel soils that produce elegant wine. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 to 15 months before bottling.
