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 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Soft wood notes sit atop the attractively fresh and spicy red currant cherry, floral and herbal tea scents. There is excellent intensity to the more evidently mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a supple mid-palate that contrasts with the dusty and serious finish where the ripeness level of the tannins is noticeably higher. This too will need at least a few years of bottle age and reward up to a decade's worth."
Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin (2012 vintage)
"The 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre has a clean and precise bouquet with Morello cherry, strawberry and a touch of dried orange peel, all nicely defined. The palate is clean and fresh with good acidity." Drink 2017 - 2027
