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
92-94 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2015 Corton Grèves Grand Cru was demonstrating some reduction on the nose, though underneath lie some decent black fruit that should offer good vigor once in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet supple tannin, well-judged acidity, harmonious in the mouth with a gentle but insistent grip on the silky smooth finish. Once the aromatics gain their cohesion and clarity, which they will, this will be a very fine Corton Grèves." Drink 2020 - 2040
91-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Discreet wood and menthol nuances still easily allow the overtly sauvage and earth-inflected aromas of red and dark currant to be appreciated. The concentrated yet relatively supple medium weight flavors possess a velvety mouth feel before culminating in a lingering if slightly warm finale where a hint of bitter cherry arises. This is not super complex but more depth will undoubtedly develop over time."
17-/20 JancisRobinson.com, Jancis Robinson
"Tank sample. Very bright crimson. Heady, concentrated nose. Bitter cherries on the end and masses of (ripe) tannins on the way there. Well constituted. Slightly dry finish at the moment. Should get there eventually." Drink 2028 - 2042
