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
90-93 Allen Meadows Burghound
"This is also quite pretty with very ripe though not jammy liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, spice and plenty of earth influence. There is more volume and power to the richer though not necessarily more concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess a really lovely mouth feel, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and beautifully persistent finish. My sense is that while it will mature in 12 to 15 years that this is going to be very long-lived."

"Bright fresh red. Pungent scents of dark cherry, menthol and mint. The palate combines lovely sweetness with juicy mint and menthol qualities. Nothing rustic about this Beaune wine! Finishes with firm tannins, captivating sucrosité, and noteworthy length."
