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
92-94/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers represents a step up from the Petite-Chapelle, with far more complexity and definition, expressive blueberry and raspberry scents intermingling with fine mineralite. The palate is linear from start to finish, but very focused with superb tension, hints of mushroom and black tea aligning with the black fruits on the long finish. Excellent."
91-93/100 Allen Meadows (Burghound)
"There is a distinctly sauvage character to the menthol-infused mélange of cassis, plum, earth and game aromas. There is exceptionally good richness to the powerful and mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a robust and serious finish. The mid-palate enjoys an abundance of dry extract that buffers the very firm tannins and overall this is a classic Cazetiers."
