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
89-91/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Bright, dark red. Cherry liqueur and minerals on the superripe nose. Sweeter than the Santenots but a bit more savory and less chocolatey for all its size. Finishes with big but gentle building tannins and a late hint of herbs. These Volnays are undeniably rich but their soil specificity is muted by sheer ripeness and concentration."
17/20 Jancis Robinson
"Monopole. Very bright crimson. Sweet and gentle and flattering on the nose and then unexpectedly dry finish. Still very youthful." Tasted 2013.
Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre shows more aromatic cohesion than the Volnay Santenots, bestowed with precise brambly redcurrant and raspberry leaf scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft, understated entry, supple tannins and a soft rounded finish that is more introverted than the nose implies. This is very fine."
