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
17/20 Jancis Robinson MW
"Tank sample. Bright garnet. Racy ‘mineral’ element on the nose. With just a hint of damp rope. Lots going on here! Real punch of bitter cherries on the end. Quite long." Drink 2024 - 2036
88-91/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Bright fresh red. Aromas of red cherry, raspberry and licorice are complicated by notes of smoke, minerals and leather. Tightly wound, even a bit youthfully tough, but conveys the vintage's inviting freshness of fruit. Earth and spice tones add interest to the wine's fruit on the ripely tannic, broad finish."
90-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Here the attractively layered nose is slightly less ripe and composed more of fruit from the red side of the fruit spectrum. The rich, supple and generously proportioned flavors possess an opulent mouth feel while also delivering equally good depth and length on the mildly rustic finale. This isn't elegant but it is impressive."
