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
92-94/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Bright medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, black raspberry, licorice, menthol and violet convey an impression of medicinal reserve. Then surprisingly plush and silky on the palate, display the inner-mouth floral lift that's lacking in some of Jadot's other premier crus from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Finishes firmly tannic, juicy and very long, with a repeating violet quality and no rough edges. Terrific potential here."
91-94/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows (2014 vintage)
"A heady nose of very strong menthol and wood toasty aromas barely allows the cassis, spice and earth scents to be appreciated. The flavor profile is notably denser and more serious than either the Vaucrains or Les St. Georges as is the finish that is powerful, complex, mouth coating and imposingly long. This should reward longer-term cellaring and note that it will definitely need at least a decade first."
