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
90-92/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Bright medium red, moderately saturated like the Suchots. More complex on the nose than the Suchots, with dark berry, redcurrant and espresso aromas complemented by a suggestion of graphite minerality. Also sweeter, plusher and more chocolatey than the Suchots, conveying a more pliant texture and little of the Suchot's slightly raw character. In fact, this wine boasts a rather creamy, almost liqueur-like quality without coming across as overly sweet. Finishes with nicely ripe tannins and very good length."
92-94 /100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin (2014 vintage)
"The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru les Beaux Monts has a clean and precise bouquet, tightly wound at first, perhaps aromatics with a leash on it, holding it back for now. The palate is well balanced with grippy red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and a touch of sage. It gently builds towards quite a dense finish that is reminiscent of a Malconsorts. Very fine indeed."
