In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
What The Critics Say
"Spicy but subdued plum, violet and black pinot fruit aromas. Pure, intense and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors possess good mid-palate concentration and a truly lovely mouth feel as the class of Vosne is immediately evident as the altitude of Beaux Monts as this is not nearly as ripe as any number of these '09s. The finish is focused and still relatively tight with a lovely sense of verve. Overall, this is more a hypothetical blend of 2008 and 2009 as there is more obvious acid support and while it's not as rich or opulent as many '09s, I quite like this for its purity of expression and overall harmony."
91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni
"The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts sweeps across the palate with layers of deep, powerful fruit and a sensual personality. Sweet spices, licorice and goudron add complexity as this superb, explosive wine builds towards the finish. This is a fabulous effort from Jadot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029."
89-92 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Medium red. Sexy, complex aromas of raspberry, chocolate, minerals and wild herbs. Sweet and lush but with excellent mineral verve and peppery acidity energizing the palate. Finishes fresh, dry, serious and long, with a saline element and strong soil character."
