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
Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Palish medium red. Red cherry, red berries, rose petal and a hint of dusty spices on the aromatic nose. Supple in the middle palate, with a slightly medicinal cherry liqueur flavor energized by a hint of cranberry. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with good breadth and persistence, an impression of delicacy and a restrained sweetness. Nicely done."
17/20 Jancis Robinson (2010 vintage)
"New vineyard for them - first vintage 2009 - just southwest of Clos des Chênes. Mid crimson. Great vitality, zest and lovely open fruit. But with real delicacy. Just what burgundy is all about. A great addition. Transparent. Not heavy but true."
