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
92-95/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Corton-Charlemagne did particularly well in 2015 and the Jadot example is just one more confirmation of that success with its ripe but fresh and airy nose of green apple, citrus peel, floral and wet stone-scented nose. While the big-bodied flavors are not quite as imposingly-scaled as those of the Montrachet, this is by no means undersized and particularly so from a power and drive standpoint as the clean and attractively dry finish is almost painfully intense. Like the Monty, this is going to need at least a few years of bottle age and reward 10 to 15. In a word, excellent." Drink by 2027+
94+/100 Stephen Tanzer
"Aromas of peach, nutmeg, smoke and flint, plus a light fusel quality. Very silky, intensely flavored wine with terrific mineral pungency and a serious spine of acidity to its penetrating flavors of lemon, apple and baking spices. Wonderfully tactile but without any impression of weight. Perhaps best today on the rising, scented finish, which offers a lovely balance of fruit, spice and mineral elements. This wine will need at least several years of cellaring before it approaches its apogee of enjoyment.(picked around September 9, according to Barnier)." 2022 - 2033
