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
93/100 Vinous, Steven Tanzer
"Sexy if reticent nose combines lemon, lime, grapefruit, mirabelle and smoky minerality. Lovely rich, spicy, floral wine with terrific intensity and exhilarating sweetness. Harmonious acidity gives this premier cru excellent balance and definition from the start. Finishes brisk, precise and very long, with an old-vines concentration. Jadot made about 40 barrels of this wine, which is close to normal production from its two hectares of vines." Drink 2020 - 2029
89-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"This is quite aromatically similar to the Abbaye except here there is a noticeable hint of mandarin orange peel. The lush, opulent and lavishly rich big-bodied flavors coat the palate with extract while delivering excellent length on the markedly powerful finale. This is a big but balanced wine and while it's not elegant, it is impressive in its fashion."
16.5/20 Jancis Robinson MW
"Tank sample. Monopole. Neat and nicely balanced with real freshness. Quite long." Drink 2020 - 2028
