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
88-90 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Barnier noted that in the same fashion as the Chassagne villages this is not the final blend that will eventually include approximately 30% 1ers. There is an interesting hint of sandalwood sitting atop the more typical aromas of citrus, pear and acacia blossom. The middle weight flavors possess a succulent and generously proportioned mouth feel that is even caressing on the clean dry and moderately complex finale. This will undoubtedly be more refined and complex with the addition of the 1ers so again please note that my predicted range is provisional." Drink 2021+
Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2014 Puligny Montrachet Villages did not contain any of the deselected premier cru barrels that will be in the final blend. Still, I find more definition and energy here than the Meursault Villages, while the palate is fresh and vibrant, a little fatter than I expected, with good concentration on the finish. What it lacks in mineral tension it compensates for in flavor." Drink 2016 - 2020
