92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another decided success in this vintage is the 2018 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Clos de la Croix de Pierre (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), an impressive effort that bursts with scents of cherries, cassis, dark chocolate and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and elegant, with a fleshy core of fruit and lively acids. This will offer a broad drinking window.
